Year 12 Mock Exams ~ Predicted Grades Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have my mock exams next week and am worried as I haven't revised enough. I have been told that these mocks will determine our predicted grades, which is the only thing I'm worried about.

    If I'm not doing any [AS] exams this year and will be doing all my exams at the end of next year, do you think that the grades I get in the mocks next week will be of high importance or not? Because there is a lot of time for teachers to put a predicted grade since all my exams will be at the end of next year. Also we will be doing a second set of mocks in the summer so that will give me a chance to improve and I'm sure the predicted grades can be changed?

    What I want to know is when will our UCAS applications be sent off? I'm assuming next year, so is it okay if I don't do well in these mocks?

    Thank you

    I think that because you wont be doing any AS exams that you should take your mocks seriously (even more seriously than if you did AS exams) because it will probably be a good indicator for your teachers for what grades they will predict you in the summer and what grades they will send to the unis.
    As someone who didn't do well in the AS mocks or A level mocks this year. You will make life so much easier if you do well in your mocks now rather than trying to make up for a poor performance later in the real thing. Although dont stress yourself out too much, look at the mocks as a trial run that you can improve on.
