GCSE Mock Exams STRESS?Watch
Some tips and why I shouldn't stress?!?! Done so much revision yet I still feel unprepared.
I've just had all my mocks except for Business Studies & German which are within the next two days. As long as you've tried your hardest, there is no need to panic. I suggest revising hard for 1 hour and taking a half an hour break to make sure you do not overdue it.
Mocks are much much MUCH harder than the real thing because youll be doing 2 or 3 exams all in one day - for the actual thing its more like 2 or 3 every week.
Mocks also can serve as a good kick in the arse to actually do some work. GCSEs you can afford to leave everything last minute, so even if you flunk your mocks you have all of Christmas, Easter and revision leave to get studying, however if you work properly, you will be pretty much set by Easter.
GCSEs are actually so bant because once revision leave starts, it is like holiday. If youve worked hard all year you will enjoy your time like I did, unlike my 'friends' who spent their entire revision leave crying about how they did no work lol. And when the summer starts, its the best holiday you will ever have, even if you break up with your girlfriend in the first 2 weeks, cus she came running back 3 weeks later haha. No but seriously, work hard now and summer will be a breeze.
Dont expect 10 or 11 A*s now. Your predicted grades will not be based off these results solely - they are much harder than the actual GCSEs.
Remember to try and enjoy them - if youve worked hard the exam is the last step of the winding staircase. If I could do it under severe depression and mild agraphobia, you will be just fine!
Best of luck with them and feel free to message me if you want help!
take each day as it comes and focus on revising the topics that you have planned to cover. don't worry about your final grade and just worry about getting all your revision done in as much detail as possible. as cliche as it sounds, as long as you try your best, you should be happy with the grades you achieve, whether in mock exams or the actual GCSE exams.
