Yep I had my first mocks at the start of December and was actually really pleased with the grades I got although I hope to do better in summer.
I got an A and a B in my two exams which worked out at just an A when they were combined. I prepared for them by making lists of key facts/timelines and learning them as well as writing out essay plans for lots of past exam questions as well as writing out others under timed conditions for practise.
I got two As in these exams and I revised for them simply by learning all the key facts, doing some reading around the topics we’d done and then doing a couple of past exam questions in timed conditions (although I will definitely do more of these before the next mock)
I got two As in these exams. For the Victorian context exam I made sure I learnt as many quotes as I could, memorised the AOs and the percentage of the marks they gave and then did some related reading to strengthen my contextual knowledge. For the Tennyson’s poetry exam I couldn’t really revise as it was unseen so I just looked at the percentage of the marks given to each AO and did a couple of practise plans with other poems.
I got an A in my Biology mock and to prepare for it I did as many past exam questions as I could because exam technique is what I usually struggle with and then learnt as much of the knowledge as I could in detail. I also practised applying this knowledge to real life situations as that is something they do a lot of in the exams and I often am thrown by this.
I hope this was helpful!
