    I am really disappointed with the fact that my mock results are not as good as I expected it. I really am upset about it, I've been thinking if these results will reflect on my actual GCSE results, please someone support!!!

    I personally have found that mock results are accurate representations of your ability in the subject. If anything, you weren't in an exam situation, so you should prepare for your results to be worse in the summer as exam nerves tend to kick up and affect the student even more. Take this as a lesson, and find what you need to work on; what your weaknesses are. Learn to use failure as a strength. Pity gets you nowhere and neither does feeling sorry for yourself.

    Mock results are not important at all. Unless you revised really hard and didn't do so well. Your mock results will show you what you don't know. It's only there to help you. Thats why its called a mock. Teachers usually expect you to get one or two grades higher than what you achieved in your mocks. Just work hard and you will do fine. trust me.

    I see mocks as unimportant in the sense that they don't count. However, I do think that they're extremely important in the sense that you now know what your strengths and weaknesses are so you have plenty of time to work them out. My college does full mocks in December, February, and April so we can track our exam-style progress throughout the year. It helps me to realise what areas I'm better at (or even whole subjects) and where I need to focus on. For example, if I realise that I aced my biology exam except the areas on cell structure, I know that's the area where my revision should be focussed on. It also helps you in your timing and exam-style writing as well. It's all well and good getting an A in an essay you had a week to do, but if you did the same essay under exam conditions, you might only get a C. It's all about learning from your mistakes and focussing on improving your weak areas. My GCSE mocks absolutely did not reflect my actual results, and neither did my AS exams last year. Concentrate on looking forward rather than holding back. Best of luck!

    Don't worry about how good or bad you did in your mocks. So far in my mocks this year I have 5 A* and 1 A with still a few results to come in. I have done decently so far but I know I need to improve A LOT for the actual GCSE's in the summer. As people have said before, use the mocks as an indicator of your strengths and weaknesses and work on your weaknesses. Good luck!
