    So I got my sociology mock grade back today and I got an E..I know all the content I just really struggle with exams and how to answer the questions. I am going to do the corrections and re submit the paper but I feel so annoyed because this is the 3rd E in sociology mock papers over the course of y12/13..My teacher said he was also disappointed as he thinks I clearly put the effort in but I am so unsure as to why I can't perform in exams, even though I feel like I put the effort in?

    Long story short, does anyone have any advice? My predicted grades are BBC and I really want to do anything to achieve them...

    Practise loads of exam papers and you should be fine. Look at the spec one more time just to see if you haven't missed anything out

    I think the best thing for you to do would be to complete as many past papers as you can. Even use old syllabus ones. Look at marking schemes etc.

    If it makes you feel better I got a U in my A-Level Economics mock and an A in the real thing.
