My teachers have told that if you are unable to do your GCSE's then they will/might use your Mock grades in place of the actual grade...

I missed my religion exam last year and they just asked for a medical note from the doctor. Similarly, my friend just needed a hospital note when he missed his T3 exam in January last year.

Did you redo it then? Were your mock/predicted grades used?

I think your actual mocks grade will be used if you have an actual reason that you have missed the exams

The Exam board might use that grade if your reason is valid - e.g) your medical issue

You would get 0 marks for that paper but could be awarded a grade for the subject based on the result you achieve in a second paper for that subject (if there is one). You can't be awarded a grade based on internal mock exam results. The rules and procedure to apply for special consideration can be found on the JCQ web site. Talk to your exams office and they will explain what is happening.

I wonder if it's the same as what happens down here in Scotland. As far as I'm concerned, they look at all of your class tests, and base what grade you would have achieved in the final exam. I remember discussing it with a teacher, and they said even if you were an A student (say at 75% or something) you would be put down to a B or something, regardless if you'd have known your performance to live up to that of an A candidate's standard. I think the only time they'd give you the exact grade you worked at in class would be if you were getting 90+% on every test for a particular subject, they couldn't just mark you down as a B, because that wouldn't make sense whatsoever.

You sound like a dedicated student, and I remember something about someone saying there was a paper 2? Do excellent in that, and that should show them your efforts would have portrayed in the first paper.
