    Your mocks and practice exams are there to help you discover the gaps in your knowledge. Mistakes can be annoying, but the mock doesn't count towards your grade. By knowing where you're making mistakes, you know where you need to improve so you can maximise your chances for the actual exam. That's the only one that matters, not the mocks.

    Put it this way, how much do you think someone learns from getting 100/100 in every mock paper, over someone getting 70 but knows that most of the marks that they've dropped have come from getting the trigonometry questions wrong etc.?
