What subjects did you do? What did you get in your mocks and what did you get in your real exam? Did you find it harder to remember things/revise leading up to the real thing or was it more of just doing continuous past papers and learning from mistakes?

Biology - in mocks in Year 12 just scraping a B, Year 13 As/A*s, real thing B
Chemistry - honestly anything from a D to an A but closer to exams probs more Bs, real thing B
French - speaking A but others B/A, real thing B

Revising was kinda easier closer to exams cause you don't have to balance revising with learning new material obviously but personally it was also harder because I was stressed and had a lot of burn-out, towards the end I found it really hard to motivate myself to care cause I was just so tired but maybe that just me. Definitely ALL the past papers and probs more than once depending on how many you have access to

The grade boundaries (2019) for chemistry are the highest out of all my subjects and it is the subject with my highest predicted grade. A little bit worried, fingers crossed I guess lol
