How much correlation did you find between your gcse results and the grades achieved in your mocks?

Fine have gone quite well, but a couple of blips have left me concerned!

Mocks are mainly about seeing where you currently stand. If you continue to work at the same rate, and do the same amount of homework/revision, this is what you'll get. So if you have a couple of "blips", it shows you where you need to improve. You don't have to get the same grades as in your mocks, but you have to change something if you want to do better.

Speak to your teacher. Sometimes, it's not so much that you don't understand the work - but that you didn't understand the question. Read what the question is asking. If it says "explain" then you need to write more than if it says "list". If the question is asking about deforestation in Indonesia then you can write all you like about Brazil, but won't get any marks for it.
