    I think I've done badly on my mocks only because it's my 18th this week and admittedly I've been more focused planning that. Do unis get notified about my mocks?

    No they don't get notified. The answer to the question in the title, of course you can. There is always room for improvement even if you got an A* or you were one mark off full marks there is always room for improvement.

    At the end of the day every student has a task. This is either improving grades which I guess is the majority or maintaining the achievement of full marks which I guess is the minority and to me is a harder task than improving.

    If you do chemistry, biology or maths or all any of these together you can always ask me for help. Sorry if you don't do these subjects.

    Of course you can! Mind set has so much to do with it and if you start early and are consistent by making a plan and just sticking to it by the time the actual exams have come around you'll feel less stressed by then and at the time you will be able to revise more thoroughly and effectively.

    But also ask yourself how hard you worked for your mocks? If you weren't doing absolutely everything you could and weren't revising 24/7 than you'll probably start doing better once you actually start putting in 100%

    that's happened to me anyway, hope this is of some help

    No they don't and happy birthday in advance! I know it's not quite the same, but last year (year 12) I kid you not, I got an E and U in my Physics January mocks, and the sad thing is I honestly thought I had done well. I was so downhearted, and I was determined to do well at the end of the year, because I wanted to carry on Physics at A2. After the exams themselves, I was feeling okay, until the others began discussing the exams and then I realised how many marks I must have lost. It came to results day, and I was only one mark off an A, so from one end of the spectrum to the other in a couple of months, with no tuition and not very good teachers. The only reason why I didn't remark the paper that I got a B on (I got an A on the other one) is because I didn't want to risk the mark becoming lower. With hard work and determination, you can do anything. After your party, really knuckle down and you might even surprise yourself! Good luck!
