    The mock examinations mean nothing now. I'm just wondering seeing as lots of people were begging for the 2015 papers.

    Nah, I wouldn't be bothered to learn the mark scheme or look up all the papers.

    Quite a few of our departments made their own papers. I wouldn't have cheated though, it completely defeats the point of mocks. You're just shooting yourself in the foot.

    Honestly - no.
    I'm not planning on cheating in the real things, so why cheat now and give myself a better than real grade?

    whilst many say they didn't cheat, I can understand why one would. For example in my school, your mock grade determine whether u can take that subject for a level.

    My teacher gave us a 2014 paper instead of 2015 meaning that it was the same paper I had done and marked the night before, so I unintentionally cheated?

    Nope, it seems a bit pointless to do so. If I am struggling then it is better my teachers know about it otherwise I would just cheat, get good grades and then never actually understand what was going on. That sort of stuff leads to me failing in the summer which I can't afford to do. A-levels have taken me 3 years as it is I am not going to mess it up for myself now on the final stretch.

    I think most of the people cheating probably wouldn't admit to it right now!

    I did not cheat on my mocks because I needed to see where I was and what I needed to do to improve.

    However there are some students at my college that you could pretty much rely on to religiously find the papers/answers. Tempting, but not worth it!

    That being said, sometimes I've found mocks are easier because theres only half the course to learn or teachers have specified topics etc, so to a certain degree perhaps they aren't as truthful enough to the real exam as they could be.

    Yeah shamefully for Chemistry additional I looked at the paper (not the mark scheme though!) and revised what I needed to because I just didn't have any time to revise and so I did it the night before. The rest I stayed true, however
