Hi, I am also in year 11 rn, and I have done my mocks, honestly, they were really hard and the result was like a slap upon my face, but since we only had 6 weeks to revise that makes sense.
first of all, stop stressing out because it won't help or change your result, make a timetable and reward yourself every time you follow the timetable, and seriously start revising without telling anyone of your plan, otherwise, you will care more about what the other person is going to get instead of yourself!
Good luck!

for maths check out your exam board and then start revising into chinks don't cram it won't work for maths. and learn the equation you need , because half of the time the eqution they give you are useless.
for biology practise 6 markers and 9 markers this is where you will be getting most of your marks from, chekc your specification, and check out seneca it really helps.

This might not help you but putting more work into maths can potentially help with a lot of other subjects - especially the sciences. I don't have much to say to help you, since I never did any sixth form interviews but I hope someone else has some good tips for you!

Yeh bcs in aqa biology single science 10%is maths skills which may not seem much but that 2 or 3 marks could boost my grade. I'm also finding it hard to retain the information.

Which subjects do you want to do at A level ?I'd put a lot of emphasis on the 9 that you got as that's what I did as I sat my English Lit in Year 10 and got an 8Show them you're capable of getting higher than your predicted I'd also try and get some experience in the courses you want to do even if it is a MOOC that takes a few hours every week

Just work as hard as you can honestly you will get there I'd watch videos of people who got 9's and implement their study techniques into your learning lmk if you get in I'm also trying to persuade my sister to go but she'd rather go to New College

For English lit get grade 9 essays off the internet from Mr bruff and Mr salles etc. annotate them then transfer these annotations onto flashcards and keep testing yourself on them that's what I did and try and form some of your own using them as a template.

If you do end up going there you will honestly have the best time I miss it so much as I had to leave to retake Year 12 due to personal circumstances and the experience you'll get there honestly is better than what I have now at a school that ranks a bit more average if you do get in ,hopefully , make the most of their enrichments I regret not taking 2 a week at the start and try and at least think about what you even want to do in the future as it really helps when choosing your a levels as I switched from wanting to do English lit, maths and psychology to all sciences when I got there
