    My mock exams begin tomorrow.

    What I would like to know is will/are you taking your mock exams seriously?

    Also what sort of revision techniques do you use in preparation for any exams/coursework? I usually do past papers, questions from my revision guides and get someone from my family to test me on my knowledge.

    No special revising techniques to display but mock exams don't have to be a reflection of the grades you'll receive in August.

    There's many examples of students changing their grades around. Most people I know did better or worse than their mock exams.

    I agree, I am doing my A2 course at the moment but during my AS mocks, I did terrible, passing in only one of my subjects. However in the summer I ended up passing 3 of my 4 subjects. So I think people obviously revise more for the real thing.
