Mock mayhem!

This week has seen the usual rise in anxiety amongst the young people I work with. Mocks are coming!!!

Here are my 3 top tips…

1. Mocks are good! They are a dress rehearsal for the real thing. Use them to track your progress whilst you still have time to put things right

2. YOUR best IS good enough. As long as you do the best you know you can do, you have done enough. More than your best is humanly impossible

3. Don’t use your last result as a benchmark. It’s likely you hadn’t even completed your curriculum or still haven’t done so… if that’s the case, how can you get a 9?

Again, humanly impossible!
