    I have an interview coming up for a grammar school but I'm not sure if they'll accept me because of my mock grades. They require 7s in the subjects I want to do - biology , chemistry, psychology and maths. 6's in everything else. I think in terms of the mock grades they wouldn't expect those results already and may accept a student who hasn't achieved it yet but is on target to do so. For my mocks I achieved : 8 in bio and chemistry , predicted an 8 for physics. A 6 in maths and history. 9 in RE and a 7 in business and English language. 5 for English lit. The one I'm most concerned about is my 3 in Spanish 😩. Although , I didn't revise for it and my teacher thinks I can get a 7 . Do you think I have a chance of getting a conditional offer . It's quite competitive.

    Yes , just do your best. As you say they can make it conditional and one GCSE is unlikely to take you down.


    Just do the interview well and then its out of your hands. What you do know is a poor interview wont help you and you cant change your mocks.
