Hope everyone is having a half decent day!

The Mix is working on a video with an expert to help young people when it comes to education! For example, if you have questions on A-level/GCSE results, or if you have any questions on returning to school/applying to Uni!

If you have any questions about this or if you know someone who has questions about anything similar, drop the questions below in a post :)  These questions will help inform us about what you'd like answered.

Usernames or names won't be mentioned in the video, so the questions will be kept anonymous.

Feel free to ask any questions that you might have!

    What is the least stressful way of revision that will actually be helpful? 

    I have been told that I could potentially be offered extra time in my exams. What circumstances would this normally be offered in and is it okay to feel unsure in case there is stigma from classmates or teachers?

    Are GCSE mock results similar to GCSE results or does it just show where you need to work on and what you might need extra support in?

    I feel quite anxious about doing my GCSE's because of everything that has gone on with coronavirus. Is there any ways to cope with this feeling after what has gone on for the world?

    I just decided to do bold and italics because why not?

    How do you stay focussed during revision or in classes at school when you are easily distracted or get bored very fast ?

    Are there any tips for remembering what you are learning during class or revision? I feel like everything goes in one ear and straight out of the other no matter how hard I try to focus
