    Mocks are designed to let both students and teachers know the level of your knowledge to date. If you have identified your mistakes then you should work on them as the real exams may possibly be more difficult. There's no need to panic or think your are incapable, everyone is capable of achieving high marks and gain knowledge, it all goes down to your hunger and desire for achieving high grades.

    Don't give up and keep pestering teachers for help, they are there for a reason.

    Be confident and believe in yourself, don't worry about what your teachers think.

    Wish you the best.

    Mocks are usually used by teachers as indicators on what level your at. Of course your going to get wrong answers but your result might not have been that bad.

    Don't worry at all. In comparison to your actual AS and A level exams, these don't mean a thing. It's just to help your teacher and you figure out what areas you're struggling in so you can ace all areas of your course and rock it at whether you go after sixth form! :-)
