    These mock exams have me literally crying, l have revised but not fully, l would say l would be DEFINITELY ready for the real exams but not mocks, mocks put stress on you even though they are to determine what you're working on and all...

    But its just..urgh.

    Hiya

    Everyone handles stressful situations differently. Some people become upset and quiet, perhaps even angry. Others will become emotional and sensitive due to the stress of what's bothering them. Both reactions and anything in-between are totally normal! Don't worry about it, as long as you're revising well I'm confident you'll be absolutely fine :yep: — sometimes a cry is the best thing, it releases pent up stress and can actually make us feel better! Don't stress too much OP

    If you ever need to talk, PM me :hugs:

    Mocks are not official it's there for you to make mistakes and learn from it.

    It's good you're revising for them and not flinging it otherwise you might feel more stressed when it comes to the real one. Keep working hard!

    I guess when you realise all the pressure on your shoulders and how overwhelming it is it can lead you to tears. People do different things when stressed some may try to hide/forget their troubles (AKA me). Doesn't end too well stress wise...

    Hopefully, l do well tomorrow on my first exam, l always take every test literal, l can never not. Every mock is a real exam to me and people have told me that's good but to not think so.

    I don't know if it is "normal", but it shows you care about them which is good

    Think of it this way - there's plenty of time from when you do the mocks and the real exam so there's bound to be improvement! You'll need to keep revising solidly as well which you are

    I don't know about normal but certainly caring is normal; I never cared that much and I came out with bad grades so I would say being stressed is good in some ways because it shows you are motivated to do well
