    What subjects are you taking? It could be a lot worse and you probably didn't revise as much as you would for the real ones.

    Well done for getting two Cs. You can always improve on that. The two Es aren't great but there's still time. You really need to work on those two subjects and work really hard. You still have time but you need to put a lot of effort in. Good luck.

    Don't let your mocks put you off. I've known people who failed their mock exams and then went on to achieve A's etc. Take it as a lesson that you need to spend more time revising. Talk to your teachers about your grades & see if they can recommend any material for you to use when revising.

    If you were revising a lot (or at least not doing zero revision) then it might be that your style of revising wasn't the best. People learn in different ways so it's important you experiment and see what style helps you the most. Here is an overview of the different learning styles - http://www.learning-styles-online.com/overview/ - it also gives you some recommendations on how best to learn for each style.

    Make sure you don't just focus on the subjects you got E's in, or the subjects you got C's for will suffer. Get yourself a revision timetable and stick to it & you'll find that even though there is a lot to revise for, it's not as daunting as you perhaps first thought. Plus if you have a really good revision strategy then you'll find you don't need to spend hours and hours each day.

    Good luck with your real exams & well done on getting those C's!

    I agree almost wholly with what this person says, also make sure you don't fall down the pit of "but I DID revise! I did a legitimate 3 minutes of staring at my book!". I know I did this after my AS's for at least a month, just make sure you're actually doing some work on things like exam technique etc (If you do sciences use physicsandmathstutor for past paper questions by topic, it gives you a good feel for answering questions)
