    So currently I am doing my mock GCSEs as i’m in year 11 and I am so worried that I am doing rubbish. I am so self-concious and never feel I have done enough or tried my hardest and if I don’t get the grades I want, I feel like i couldn’t live with myself. Advice??

    extra info:
    I am targeted half grade 8’s and half grade 9’s, an A* in Finance and an A^ in Further maths. I have already achieved an A* in Statistics.

    If I were you I'd tell someone about this, a school nurse, your parents or anyone really. It's no time healthy to feel this stressed about your exams, especially mocks. Make a clear revision timetable and try to stick to it. Remember to make time to do what you enjoy as well. It's easy to feel like you haven't done enough, but everyone feels this way and everyone will be nervous. Your grades are good but you still need to revise if you want to do well. After all, predicted grades are just predicted. Try not to get too upset if you fall short. But I would speak to a teacher or someone about how stressed you feel. They will be able to help! Best of luck xx

    I had my mocks in November and i was stressed to but thats a good thing because it shows you care. From my experience don't start revising your first weeks of mocks in so much detail you have to time for the second week so that you aren't revising the night before for the end of your mocks. Eat well, sleep well, revise in healthy portions but keep your mental health well. Think of these mocks as a way to prove to yourself/ teachers how much you know and then when you know what you can't do (Which I doubt since you're an A* student) you can revise before the real gcse which I'm doing this year so good luck to the both of us!

    I don't know how you do computer science I couldn't even stand python in year 7 but that's so cool and honestly you'll be fine and staying positive is so hard but I think it's worth it because the only person who can do it is you so lets be cringy and "believe in ourselves" lool

    Mate it's a mock, none gives a **** especially since it's a GCSE mock. With A level mocks is a different story as they can kick you out from certain courses for doing rubbish.
    I know, I know, idk why it scares me. I just get upset over my mock results because i feel like its gonna be similar in the real ones and i know its just GCSE but it would still be good to have amazing GCSE grades as well if I want to apply to like Cambridge Uni

    When it comes down to it, you can only do your best. My predicted grades are very similar to yours, lots of 9s and 8s, and I know it seems like a lot of pressure at times. But I just think to myself- in May, I'll be sat in my exam, and I just have to do my best. If I do well, great! If I do worse, never mind. I can have another go at A-level. Try to stay positive, and look after yourself! xx
