    How is everyone feeling about the mocks? How have you decided to treat them? I know a lot of people who are treating them like our actual GCSEs but personally I haven't because teachers are still giving us tons of homework so I don't have much time to revise, so I don't.

    surely the homework set helps in some way with revision?

    tbh I probably took mocks more seriously than the actual exams. (and performed better in some subjects) Don't burn yourself out.

    I’m finding them 50/50 to be honest. However, I’ll probably do really bad. I’m predicting I manage to just scrape a C in English, Business and Sociology. Sadly

    At very least they'll suggest areas to improve. Even if you don't do well as you hoped, you can still get a lot out of a mock.

    The French and maths homework doubles as revision and exam technique. It's just that it's not optional so I don't really see it as revision. I will revise and my teachers are helping me out. I'll try my best.

    The people who say they'll do bad always do good, so you'll be fine. A C is still a pass
