    I'm in year 10 and I do my real GCSE's in year 11.

    I got a bad grade for a unit test and it will be averaged out for the end of year grade.

    If it's a mock exam then no. If it's a real exam in year 10 then yes.

    Universities don't care about your end of year grade. They only care about your qualifications.

    Mock grades mean absolutely nothing. They are not qualifications, and do not hold any weight in any sense of the word.

    No, unis only ever look at your ACTUAL exam grades (which you will get gcse certificates for. I get mine finally in December-yay!!! ) Mocks are for you and your teacher- identify your strengths but more importantly your weaknesses and come exam season SMASH your exams! Best of luck!x Trust me, if you're in yr 10 you still have a LOT of time till your exams.Just work smartly and productively- you still have plenty of time to achieve straight A*s or your personal target grades!
