    Yes, if you work hard.

    The whole point of mocks is to highlight what you cannot do, and so, now you have time to revise over errors made in mocks

    Don't be disappointed in mock results, see it as a learning curve

    Of course!

    You still have quite a few months left and you'll be surprised how much you can achieve in a short period of time. Go through your mocks papers, see where you went wrong and learn from it.

    Good luck!

    I heard people can improve by 2 or maybe at a push 3 grades, in the real thing this is because as humans we work harder under pressure when there's stakes on the line when you're in the actual real GCSE environment you'll probably do much more better in mocks, but still revise as you cant solve the problems without the basic knowledge.
