Below Average and plane awful mock resultsWatch
So recently year 11 took their mocks. Our school got our results back fairly quickly, and to cut a long story short, I Failed... all of them.
I haven't had English or geography back yet, but I got a C in maths, an E in History and an E in science. I really, really, really want to go to my school's sixthform, but they require 5A*-B grades, and my confidence of getting those grades is low now. Before the mocks, I was predicted mostly B's, But I'm really stressed and wondering... If I failed my mocks, will my school still offer me a conditional offer, as I'm an internal candidate? I already have an A in rs, and I hope to study Classics, philosophy, rs and geography... I'm just so sad and confused. I really wish the school wouldn't do this to us. I really appreciate your answers and feedback thanks guys!
And part of that is marking mocks harshly - in most cases mocks are the reality check that persuade people to really work hard for the real things. You have a few months - you could push up grades in all your subjects! You might have to look at your revision style (are you learning effectively) and your exam technique (are you communicating your knowledge in the way that will get marks in an exam), but you can definitely do it. With work. So please don't let bad mock results get you down; take it as an incentive to get the results you want. Best of luck
This has been a massive reality check. I think a lot of students have an artificial idea that if they're predicted, say a B, that's the grade they would get if they didn't do any revision, but the truth is you have to work for that grade. I'm doing 2 past History questions a week, and asking my teacher to mark them. I'm going to talk to my head of year tomorrow to reassure myself. Again, Thanks
Don't worry, I'm sure you will do well in the real papers.
