I got 6 A's, 2 Higher Merit's & 2 B's in the mocks. I want to get 10 A's in the junior cert. (basically all A's) but I'm not sure if I'll be able to, I'm doing the exam papers, I'm doing the homework - but I feel like I'm not doing enough. My parents are pissed that I got those results, as they expected all A's. Now, they think I'm going to do terrible in the junior cert, and to be honest - their mindset is starting to creep up onto mine. I'm trying to ignore them, but they don't support or encourage me at all anymore, they just said it's my life and it's my decision on whether or not I study, just because of those grades. I want to get all A's, but now I'm starting to think maybe I will do terrible because of how "badly" I did in the mock. + I'd love to hear from people how to get a distinction in the JC english exam, as I got a Higher Merit in the mock and I really want to get a distinction - but I don't know how. I've completed a lot of the exam papers already, and I'm sort of stuck in a loop hole on what to do. Any advice on the two would be greatly appreciated.
