    Best of luck! I don't miss the days of 12 subjects, I am far happier with my 2/3 mocks in Year 13
    Thanks a lot!

    Good luck with your mocks and with what you intend to do after your A-levels, university etc! I'm sure that with hard work, determination and passion, anything is possible!

    From what I've heard from my teachers, they'll only there to give us an idea of what our strengths and weaknesses are and to get used to being in an exam situation.

    But in the long run, are they really *that* important? Or is it the year 11 mocks that need to be worried about the most?

    Thanks in advice to anyone who responds!
    In the long run, no, they're not. But mocks are always very useful performance indicators. So do take them seriously and do your best, but don't get stressed about them because they are there for your benefit and your benefit alone.

    I know mocks are there to see what your strengths and weaknesses are but is it true that if you fail your year 10 mocks you can't go to a good college or they might not accept you
