My mocks were average, but my actual GCSE's were a lot better. Don't worry, just revise.

All of my mock results were lower than my actual results. For maths, my mock results were a C and a D on the two papers, but in the actual exams I got an A*. I've never taken mocks seriously, though...

Mocks are normally marked very harshly compared with the real thing so as to scare you into revising, 4 years ago, I got a E in my mock gcse history and came out with a B in the end.

I got a mix of As and A*s for both mocks and the real thing. Although i did better in my final results. I really wouldn't put too much weight on mock grades, treat them as a motivational tool or a checkpoint (depending on how well you did) if anything.

Eng. Lit = D - A
Eng. Lan = C - A
Maths = B - A*
Psychology = A* - A*
Additional Science = A* - A*
R.S. = A* - B
Citizenship = B - A*
Above are all the subjects i did mock examinations in. The grades in bold are the grades i actually attained. The grades that aren't in bold are the grades i attained in the mocks.

I got roughly the same as my mocks, improving a bit in the sciences and staying the same in everything else. It depends on how seriously you took the mocks and how well you revised for them. If you didn't bother to revise much, but revise lots for the real thing then your grades should improve, if you revise well for them both then they'll probably stay the same or go up a little bit.

EDIT: just found my mock results: (mock first, real second)
German A*-A*
Geog - A*-A*
Citizenship A*-A*
Chem - A - A*
History - A*-A*
Biology - A* - A
Physics - A - A*
Eng Lit - A - A
English - A - A*

Oh and I took RE in yr 10, mock was a B (75%) and real thing was A* (96%)

I didn't bother with mocks tbh. At our school as well they mark too high to make you improve so for example it'd be 85-90% for A*. Anywho, I got BBBBBBCCC in the mocks then A*A*A*A*A*A*AAB in the real ones

My GCSE mock grades use to be terrible they'd range from C-E but in the end I got 1A 7Bs and 1C just goes to show that mocks mean nothing. Good luck on your final exam

Actually it might have been the other way round in the mocks: CCCCCCBBB. I'm not sure

Mine were a mix. For some subjects, like sociology where in my mock I got an A*, I went down in the real thing because I got too big headed and then did no work (got a B in the end), and some subjects, like maths where I'd received an E, I improved because I worked my ******** of to get that result (I got a B in the end). But tbf, I was pretty lazy in year 11, so I dropped a few grades in my "real thing" in comparison to my mocks.
