hey guys i need some help because i am stressing out immensely rn , i had AS mocks this past week and i like to think i've done well....

but i keep getting this feeling like a ****ed up on everything (i'm doing bio,chem and history a-level) ik for chemistry i've gotton some questions right but i feel like i've got some wrong and it's honestly just sending me into a panic frenzy

does anyone have some reassuring tips i can use to help me calm down a little , how do i stop thinking that i messed up (i got my results next week btw) thanks

At the moment, there's nothing you can do - you just have to see what happens!
I know that's a difficult thought, but luckily, AS level mocks aren't the be-all and end-all, they're just a stepping stone to help you learn what you need to improve on for your AS levels. They're not really used in predicted grades for UCAS, especially if they're uncharacteristic of your usual performance.

Just take some time to rest & relax this weekend - you've no doubt been studying hard for these mocks and your mind probably needs a break.
None of us can tell you that you've scored 100% as none of us know either - but as long as you know you worked hard and tried your best, that's all that matters right now, not the grade on the piece of paper.

I’m kind of in the same situation because I messed up on Physics and I feel kind of lost. You can’t really do anything to change, just try to keep calm.

I got 95% in my mock basically 95/100 marks ( we are given percentages instead of grades)

Hey,

Yes nobody wants to do badly in mocks, but you just need to remember that they don't count to much formally (UCAS predictions maybe, but other mocks will also be looked at for that). Mocks are a good way to see what elements you did well at and what you can improve on for the proper exams. And it is always better not to do as well before exams because it will motivate you to revise more as you will not become complacent (this is something that I've seen people do and then they suffer during results days). So just relax, and class it as a learning curve - things can only get better from here!

Hope this helps

Realise that these results directly have no formal consequence.

Understand that you can learn from every question you got wrong.

Improve yourself after correcting your mistakes so that you are prepared for the main exams

This is what mocks are for. Better you mess up here and learn from it than mess up on the day. They're a learning experience. If you have messed up you still have time to prepare for the real thing.

If something has gone wrong, it's okay to take a few days to just feel down and come to terms with it. After a little time it'll become that fire under your ass you need to do better in the real thing. (:

I've seen a few people who went from U grades in A2 mocks to A/B grades in chemistry in the external examinations


The scale of demoralisation is down to your mind
