    Hey guys I'm in year 12 (taking the linear exams) and the exams I take at the end of year 12 are mocks exams (no AS exams ) So I've been putting in alo of effort since September, and all my supervised studies I've been revising so much, but when I realized that we take mock exams I thought should I revise less and not work as hard for them?
    So should I still work at the pace I'm going and also are mock exams easier than AS exams adn are they still important?
    thanks x

    They are important because your predicted grades (which are sent off to unis) are largely based on them.

    If I were you, don't revise too much because you don't want to burn out. But make sure you stay on top of the content.

    Thanks, that is true though
    Also, I have to revise alot for maths though because I'm not very good at it and I want an A lol
    Also, do you know when predicted grades are sent off to unis because If i do well in mocks then I if the school predict me low (because of my GCSE'S) I want to make sure I talk to them

    For maths, do plenty of practice questions. The only way to get those important skills (algebra manipulation, differentiation, integration) to become second-nature is by practice. Also, you need to do enough so that you've seen most of the kinds of questions you could be asked. You want to see the paper and think "I've basically done this question before, just with different numbers".

    Thanks again, should I make notes because I've heard without notes you can't get a high grade?

    Make notes if you feel you need them. I would recommend it, but do what's best for you. But whatever notes you make, make sure you actually revisit them.
