Hey! I have mock exams this week, do you have any advice to help me keep on track and be less nervous?
For mock exams, I'd suggest reading our "surviving mock exams" guide which you can find here:https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=5132504
Regarding being less nervous that's probably a more personal thing, but I found if I had some water, felt relatively prepared (or if not pretended the result didn't matter which for mocks of course they don't) and took the time to breath calmly it worked for me. Also don't be afraid to take a short while in the exam out from answering questions. In one of my maths exams I'd spent 25 minutes on the last question of the paper and still wasn't getting it so I made myself have a drink and not even look at the paper for a minute or so then went back to it which really helped to clear my head.
Hope that helps

Today, I found out about dropping out of a gcse subject. However, the deadline was passed and I was wondering if it is possible to withdraw it even when passing the deadline. I heard from a teacher that I can but I have to pay for the penalty thing. But I don't mind, but I am worried if it might come up in the records or say that I got a U in history if I did get a withdrawal.
As long as you officially withdraw then it should be as if you weren't entered in the first place. If you weren't officially withdrawn then it wouldn't be a U anyway, it would be an X (iirc) which shows you didn't turn up to enough of the assessment to get a grade.
WE CAN DO THIS (I hope)
#MrsMCgonigle told me all the question before I sat the exam and yes it was PURE LUCK !!!!!
She is the BEst!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And if you are finding difficulty finding a maths revision website you should use OnMaths.com as this has predicted papers for the new GCSE.
Hope that helps
I am starting my GCSE's in September and am super excited! Do you have any experiences you want to share with me?
