So I'm currently in the middle of my mocks...they're hard. I've had my English Lit paper 1 and all my maths back. I've applied to take both at A-level. I was on a high 7 in maths and a high 6/low 7 in English Lit. I got a 5 in English Lit and a high 6 in maths. This isn't supposed to happen. My grades are supposed to get better, not worse. Since the beginning of year 10, i've been a solid 7 in maths and I was slowly getting closer to an 8 and now I'm on a 6. Not good. I'm slightly concerned, to say the least. The thing is I tried my hardest and I genuinely have no idea how to improve. My real exams start in a few months and I'm just a little stressed.
What are the downsides?
