    For GCSEs, I got 7As, 2Bs and 1C in my mocks . . . Then I got 7A*s, 2As and 1B in the real exams! For AS, I got BCDD, I think, then got AABB! The AS mocks were very early on, though, and we hadn't covered everything. I always do quite poorly in my mocks!

    Your real GCSE grades is pretty much impossible to get in 2016 you should see what type of ridiculous questions that they give you

    Then the grade boundaries will be lower! Anything is possible if you just work hard!

    Mocks I got 3 A*'s 6 A's + 2 A*'s I actually achieved in Year 10
    Predicted : 9 A*'s 2 A's - the A's were for English Lang & Lit
    Actual : 11 A*'s

    For AS levels:

    Mocks : 3 A's and 1 B (in Chemistry because my teacher can't mark - it went up from a scraped C to a borderline A) -.- : average percentage across my mocks was 87%
    Mocks just now: 4 A's
    Predicted: 4 A's
    What I think I will get: 2 A's and 2 B's

    That's probably because your doing different exam boards and not all people interpret the question the same way

    I got **** grades at my GCSE mocks because I didn't revise. I got plenty of As and A*s in the real thing with only a B in physics and English.

    For GCSEs, think it was something like 5A*s a few As and a B. Got 7A*s and 2As. For A level it was four As in mocks at AS which I got, 3A*s and an A for A2 mocks and 4A*s in the end. I tended to revise a couple days or so for mocks

    GCSE year I was predicted 5As and 7Bs
    I got 5A*s 6As and 1B
    2 weeks before the exams I got a C in physics and brought it up to an A*

    AS level year I got a U in S1 a few weeks before exams and got it up to a pretty high A

    How Did you get an A in S1? How do you revise?

    I think all I did was do all the past papers I could find. That's the best way to revise for all maths modules

    I usually do better on my mocks than the real thing. It sucks so bad and I have no idea why? I usually think I do a lot better in my exams than mocks ? :/

    My mocks for A-levels were fairly accurate, apart from Chemistry which was mixed - I could get an A in one mock and then a C/D in the next, and ended up with a B at the end. :borat:
