    At my school we have weekly mocks so every week we have an exam on Biology, chemistry then physics and it goes in order from unit 1 to unit 3. (So were currently on unit 2). So we basically get a week to revise on it and because of this I keep getting C's. And i'm scared this will harm my revision for the real gcses because I have to keep changing the topics i'm revising for every week. (Also in these weekly mocks I don't have enough time to go through all the topics and do pastpapers).

    I feel u tbh. you just have to try & remain organized, use a planner if it helps. Cant u tell ur teachers how ur feeling ?? Its gnna be stressful remaining on top of of ur work but I recommend reviewing after EACH lesson & spending one day on it, basically like a cram session, not the night before tho. Do past papers & all. Then once you've done spend the week revising for other things. Best of luck.

    That sounds pretty intense. It sounds as though you don't have enough time in between mocks to improve your grade. Why don't you ask if you can do mocks every fortnight instead?

    I can't my school says they've been doing this and it works. Tbh it's just not helping me tbh. I don't know how people are getting A's and B's in these exams as well.
