ahhh.
How much can I improve, on a general scale.
Achieving 3A*’s, 5 A’s and a B at this point in time (December mocks) - [3 grade 8’s, 5 7’s and a 6].
How much have you guys improved from mocks to GCSE’s if you don’t mind me asking, really really feeling demotivated and things aren’t going very well rn ://
Thank you guys )

Lmao funny thing is I literally study so much, but I haven’t done so until a few months ago and just want to know how much i could realistically improve, without setting my expectations too high; didn’t think that was an unrealistic thing to ask but hey ho

In all honesty, yeah because I really really want to go into dentistry, and the average applicant has quite the number of A*s if ygm, typically 6/7+ and idk but self doubt is really starting to build up 😬

You're doing brilliantly tbh to be getting those grades right now is excellent and if you just continue working hard, practicing what you got wrong etc. you're well on the way to achieving, imo, mostly A*s.

I get the feeling that you're somehow not happy with your mocks and even though many would be, it's fine and just make sure you're revising effectively. Get to know the mark schemes almost off by heart. Look at the subjects you're getting 8s in and apply that technique to your other subjects.

You've still got a long time until your real exams.

Personally, I did quite similarly in my mocks and actual exams. However, I did improve on some: I got 9s in maths and English in the real thing whereas in mocks I got a 7 and two 8s. Remember many exam grades in numbers are new so teachers don't know grade boundaries.

It could be your current revision techniques, what are they, if so how did you revise for this mocks.

Also, how long did you have to revise for them?

Thank you sm, it’s great having someone who gets the feeling😬 I attend quite a competitive grammar and quite a few of the students are already achieving majority 9’s and it’s just quite degrading feeling so far behind, but thank you

Ah I’ve been writing out all of my notes because I didn’t really have any work ethic until very recently, but this time around I’m trying out flash cards and hoping it’ll help, thanks for the advice by the way, I appreciate it a tonne

Hahah thank you so much, you’re so kind❤️ but nahh idek tbh I would love 9A*’s, and if I achieved that I’d probably be sent over the moon, just seems a little out of reach considering I have about 5 months left hoping for about 2/3 9’s, around 4 8’s and 2 7’s But idk about how realistic that is hahah 😫

I think it all depends on our own expectations, but honestly what I’m relying on for GCSE’s, and my school basically throw these in our faces are the cgp revision guides, they have everything in the syllabus, for different gcse exam boards, and literally guarantee you good grades if you learn them and learn how to apply the knowledge, and they’re only about £5 each!! Win win 😂
