This thread was inspired by the (basically copied ) AS thread about mock results.

January is nearly over and some, if not most of you have received your mock results by now!

What did you get?
Are you disappointed? Do you feel like you could have done better?
What subjects do you take?
What grades do you want by summer?

I'll do mine:

What did you get?
I got A*BC

Are you disappointed? Do you feel like you could have done better?
A teeny tiny bit but I expected it since there was so much to learn for Sociology and what I had revised for mostly didn't come up and I have appalling evaluation skills for the 21 and 33 markers

In terms of IT, our teacher re-used the mock paper from last year despite telling us he wouldn't so I didn't really practice the questions on the paper (really silly now that I look back on it lol.

Was shocked about English Lit because it's probably the subject I struggle with the most :eek3:

What subjects do you take?
English Lit, IT and Sociology (respectively in grades stated above)

What grades do you want by summer?
I'm aiming for AAB/ABB

A* A* D
History, English Literature and Economics

Had an off-day - misread 5/8 Multiple Choice question in Economics and missed an entire 16 marker... compounded by the fact she gave us a full-paper despite teaching only 70% of the exam spec.
FML
I hate short questions...
Going to ask my teacher if she can set me a resit paper, and this time I'll read the questions properly!

Aiming for A* A* A*
Need to clean up and work out a strategy for Unit 3 Economics, particularly the multiple choice questions.
Perfectly fine with Unit 4 which is entirely essay based.

What did you get?
BB, still waiting for one more.
Are you disappointed? Do you feel like you could have done better?
No, I feel like I put as much work in as I could. In History I was two marks off an A, and my teacher said if I had had chance to finisih off my conclusion, I would have got an A. I know what I need to do in Philosophy to improve, and I only need a C this year to get an A overall anyway. I feel like English Literature went well, as I was already familiar with the unseen extracts and I remembered a lot of my wider reading.
What subjects do you take?
History, English Literature and Philosophy.
What grades do you want by summer?

I'm predicted AAA, but I need at least AAB, with an A in History, to get into my first choice university.

A*A*A* in maths, further maths, physics


not proud though, since we haven't yet done mocks for FP2, FP3 and M3 which are likely to be rather disastrous

This thread was inspired by the (basically copied ) AS thread about mock results.

What did you get? ABC

Are you disappointed? Do you feel like you could have done better? I'm actually happy with them atm I mean I got Cs-Us in my AS mocks so it's good to start off higher this year but I need to improve on Chemistry (C) alot and slightly on Biology (B) :3

What subjects do you take? Computing, Biology, Chemistry

What grades do you want by summer? AAA :cry:Good luck guys!

As long as you don't let your grades bring you down you're more than capable of achieving those A*s now that you've realised that you didn't revise for your mock!
