    Massively panicking. I don't know the content for this subject and I'm not good at the exam technique. I'm also feeling terrible which is not aiding my revision in the slightest. Grrrr.

    Don't think about them! I have had 12 mocks already and have two more this week. I was totally calm though! I mean seriously, they are only mocks, this is your chance to see how good you are. This is a total boost to your revision status
    My friend though, she really freaks out too. She got so scared in our math mock that she got a bad bleeding nose and had to leave the hall. She didn't finish and I feel really sorry for her for worrying this much.

    So... er.. good luck tomorrow!

    Most people either had the easter weekend then 2 weeks off (so back today) or the easter weekend then 4 days of school then 2 weeks off (so back next Monday). I believe it was mostly Scotland and some of the West? coast that had the second option. Most of England had the first. No clue about Wales!

    yes it's annoying, the school just pulled out this information when everyone thought all was well so it was frustrating at first, we all spent about three days straight up b*tiching about the school

    Honestly it helps to not care...or at least pretend you don't. I'm not trying to show-off here but I didn't revise for my first couple of mocks and I got surprisingly good grades. What helped me further understand the question was having a calm head and pretending to have fun.

    In my first mock I was so chillaxed the invigilator thought I was cheating. Every time i looked up I saw her eyes staring into me, then quickly flicking away. It humored me and put me in a good mood, and consequently I got good results.

    The whole point of this is to show you that you must keep calm. I guess it's easy for me to say, but honestly it helps. Take a break and mess about for a bit.

    Good Luck!

    Thanks! Honestly I was chill about the whole situation but today my dad told me that if I did well (A*s and As) he'd get me a new phone. I was annoyed how I didn't have this motivation at the beginning of the Easter holiday but :borat: it'll be fine
