For example, yes I got x grade in my mocks, but I was only able to get that grade because I have seen a lot of the exact questions. However, in reality there is going to be a whole new set of questions and I’m not like extremely smart
In short- how important are they anyway
mocks can be useful if you try hard, but they dont have to correlate. in a lot of my mocks i got C grades, and got mostly B grades in my final exams. however in some like english, i went from a D to an A.
they are quite representative but obviously you can do a lot in the time between to change your grade!
my friend got a D in her Welsh mock and came out with an A* in August
I got a mixture of 6s and 7s in my December mocks and then ended up getting mostly 8s and 9s; the way you revise changes over the year and you learn to do more efficient revision so it's not impossible - if you put the work in - to go up two or even three grades between January and May
