I’ve passed all my mocks, my highest is a 9 and my lowest is a 3. If I don’t do well my life is going to suck, I’ve been stressing for so long my teachers keep drilling it in that we don’t have a lot of time

You've not really passed ALL your mocks if a 3 is your lowest, but if your highest is a 9 and you passed all the other ones I'm sure you'll do alright

Your life is not going to suck if you don’t get all 9s, it is fine to have ‘weaknesses’ in certain subjects.

Just work as hard as you can and try not to worry about it, you could possibly make a revision timetable? To keep you on track if that’s going to help.

Good luck

It is going to suck, they’re the most important exams so far and there’s people who get straight 9s. I don’t have any motivation to revise anymore

There’s a small proportion of students who do actually achieve 9s in the UK if you look at statistics (not the statistics of students on TSR!).

Have you started revising yet?

You're just repeating what you've been told.

It's in schools' interest to tell their children that GCSEs will 'decide your future' because the schools need to perform well. You're their products, and 'The Government' comes down on them if they don't pass quality assurance. So they're not gonna tell you "just do your best, but it doesn't matter if you fail".

GCSEs don't dictate anything in life and employers don't really care. You can even do Maths and/or English on the side for a few weeks and pass it WHILE ON THE JOB. Schools stretch it out over 2 years, it's laughable.

Plus you can do GCSEs (and A Levels, uni, whatever) whenever you want at any time, it's not exactly once-in-a-lifetime.

While you're right in a sense - I still think it's good to try your best to pass as soon as you can otherwise it just becomes an inconvenience later on down the road.

agreed focus on post-GCSE grades mainly (as long as your GCSE grades are decent then your fine IMO)

This is true but what other exams have you done so far? Provided you pass enough subjects they're really of no use. You have plenty of people with less than stellar GCSEs that go on to do very well. Equally, some of the people you see getting straight 9s might hit a wall and not do too special later on down the line. What matters more, as to what you can do in the future, is the qualifications you do when leaving school. These are just a stepping stone for those.
