    I am feeling incredibly guilty because my mocks are coming up soon, in like 3 weeks, but I have access to all of them. Do you suggest I use them or not?

    I have felt like deleting them and revise properly but it's so tempting to just use them in a beneficial way to enhance my grades. I do understand having access is not beneficial at all.

    Help me! Advise me on what to do.

    Short term: You'll do well.
    Long term: If you do really well, a teacher may expect you to know things by yourself therefore you won't be gaining any help. Also, you're just cheating because you have the papers. Will you have the real papers in the exam? NO. So just man up and deleted them and actually do some work for yourself. This way you are preparing yourself to fail.

    Cheating on mock exams is pointless
    You will learn nothing about your readiness or revision needs to prepare for the summer exams
    Your teachers will learn nothing about the help they need to give you.

    On a more serious note dear, i'm certain it would have negative effects on future exams you do as you will truly have no idea what's coming up, some sort of "false confidence" grows...i suggest you don't give in , stay strong and true to yourself (DON'T PEEK)

    i am in a similar position and i suggest dont peak cuz then you'll get too confident when it comes to the real thing, you wont end up revising cuz you'll think you too god. Dont peak, don't give in stay strong so when you do do your mocks and get the results then you'll know you earn t those grades

    Depend entirely on whether you want to use it as an effective revision tool, or if you'd rather "impress" people.

    Honestly, nobody but you will care about your mock grades. I just took them to see how much actual revision I'd need to do to get an A*

    I don't think bit will benefit you much. If you revise genuinely for your mocks you will know where you are now, how much more work you need to do, which revision strategies worked and which didn't, how much you were able to retain and what you didn't fully understand. Cheating will only fill you with a false sense of self confidence

    So you decide

    I'd suggest not using them for your own benefit. A mock is for you to know what you're good at and what you need to look over before the actual exam. Perhaps after you have your mocks, look over them then but not before. Good Luck in your upcoming exams

    No, mock exams can be really helpful and will help you understand which areas you need to work on. In the short term you may be credited however in the long term and on results day you may be disappointed. There is no point in cheating on a mock.
