Well Mock exams give the teachers an idea on how you would do in exams also they can put you into different sets to work on certain areas where they think you are struggling. they are necessary to you because then at least you know what you got first time round and could improve it in any way and stuff

yep because if something happens  to you (God forbid) like an accident etc, then you will not be able to take your actual exam; instead you will get the grade that you got on your mock.

Yeh, try to treat it like a practise for the real exam and do your best as it will give you more confidence going into the real exam and its a really good way of bringing up areas you need to put further work into:)

If you do really well in your mocks you know you've got your revision techniques and exam skills sorted. So I try using them to see how I'm doing so far. And they do make up a part of the teachers perception about you, and it's always good to show your teachers you're capable of doing well.

Deffo, if you work really hard for the mocks revising for the actual exam will be easy! 

Its always a good learning experience, untimatley the external exam result will count but you can learn from mocks, ways on how you could improve and what you should and shouldnt do :)

I never use to, but then i realised that it was preparation for an actual exam. You should seriously revise for them , seeing as they're gonna be used by ur teachers when they're writing your UCAS report thing.

I dont revise as much as i do for actual exams for mocks tho :/

I see them as a way to calculate the bare minimum revision required, so no :L
