Hi I just got my mock exam results today and I didn’t do as well as I could’ve probably bc I just didn’t revise but my results were:

English language: 7
English literature: 4+ (ig that means a high 4 but I’ve never done English literature before year 11 so I think that’s decent)
Citizenship: 7
Maths: 5 (I’m really disappointed bc i want to do maths a level and i thought it was my strongest subject)
Science: 6-5 (it was really hard so I expected that)
Food tech: 3 (I’m completely new to food tech bc I moved schools and didn’t get to choose my subjects)

So yeah as you can probably tell I got really mediocre/bad results esp with eng lit and food which are both new subjects to me. I’m just wondering how I can bring these grades up because I want to get mostly 7s/8s and maybe a few 9s for GCSEs. I’m planning to start learning all the poems and watching the films and reading the books for Christmas carol and Romeo and Juliet bc I don’t know anything about them (I do animal farm too but I’ve learnt that). I also want to bring my maths and science grades up to 7s/8s bc I want to do them at college. Does anyone maybe have any advice into how I should revise and manage my time in order to get these grades?

Also even though I’ve already just finished applying to colllege (maths physics chemistry economics), I’m kind of wondering if I shouldn’t do that and maybe do English/politics? a levels but I was considering doing engineering at uni so idk . Should I stick with the subjects I chose based on my intrests or do the subjects that I’m currently performing better at?

Work out where you lose the marks in each subject and work on that. This might be exam technique (so work on timing questions or whatever) or content (for me, I always mess-up on histogram questions so I know to work on that).

Do practice papers (ask your teacher for them or look online) to get to grips with the structure and for more practice.

Ask your teacher - it's their job to help you get the best mark possible and they can give you more specialised feedback

Congrats on your English Language mark and good luck

If you're taking your mocks seriously (which you are) you'll definitely do well in the real thing. Good luck!
