So I got my mock results back before Christmas and I feel like such failure, especially after going on TSR and reading about people who got all 8/9 in their mocks.
I was wondering what your mock results were, and if you have done them already, how your GCSEs compared to your mocks, and what you did to obtain those grades.
My mock results:
English Lit- 6 (I was the most upset about this one. I cried for a good few hours. I WAS 1 MARK OFF A 7 TOO!)
English Lang- 9
Science- 6 (I do double. Got a 6 in all 3 sciences)
Maths- 5 (Never been good at Maths. My worst subject.)
I am not saying a 6 is "bad" btw.
EDIT: I completed my GCSEs and I ended up doing much better
English Lang- 8

I was also wondering the same thing - will it be easy to go up a grade ?
this was 3 years back but i got a D in my english Lit mock, then and A* with full ums in the exam
and a C and D in my maths mocks I think, then a high A in my exam
.... you're disappointed with those grades? i only got one 7 and 8 and they were in english lit and lang if that makes you feel any better.
chill... These grades are good just focus on revision for Easter
Those are good results for mocks! I didn't do anywhere near as well as my actual GCSE results.
I learnt how to study slightly more efficiently after my mock exams (although still had some way to go). It also showed me where I needed to focus my study.
Just have a game plan now - you still have plenty of time.
All the best - and good luck!
As long as you study hard you will most likely go up by one or two grades. Maybe three if you work extremely hard. Most people do better in their GCSE's than they do in their mocks. You should still be very pleased with your results however.
it really all depends on how hard your tests were
My mock results were pretty good in most areas but I hope I'm not too drained till GCSEs and can do better (we were given raw percentages for subjects that didn't have the 9-1 grading system last year):
Further Maths- A^
My results are:
Eng Lit : 6(I was super upset about this, after being a straight 8 student!)
English Lang: 8
I'm hoping to get all 8's and 9's in the real thing.
In my mocks in jan of this year I got:
Math - 7
Chemistry - 6 (I worked so hard for this, kinda dissapointed)
Physics - 4 (Didnt study lol)
Economics - A
Business - B
Further Maths - A
English Language - 7
English Literature - 6
Geography - 4 (Same as physics, didnt study)
I want to get all 8/9 and A*s by the end of the year lmao, but to do that i know i need to start NOW, but its so hard :'(
i got a grade 3 in English lit a grade 3 in lang a 3 in maths a 2 and geography a 2 will these go up to grade 4s in my real gcses

Sat my exams last year. Mocks - 888A*A*A*AAAA. Real - 999A*A*A*A*A*A*A*
Did my GCSEs a couple years ago, got A*ABCCCCCEE in my mocks, and A*A*A*AAAAABB in the real thing, and I only started revising after Easter holidays - just wrote out brief notes and repeatedly tested myself.
