Last minute tips

If you’re studying a language and have a listening exam coming up, just listen to music e.g. when I was doing my French GCSE I had to get 2 A*’s in the exams to get an A average so I bumped up by B to an A* in listening by listening to French music everyday, my favourite was Stromae. I know it sounds really weird and no one listened to me but TRUST ME it worked.

If you’re doing a levels (AS or A2) and you’re not sure what to do or you’ve finished revising and now you’re looking for another method or whatever your situation…bottom line at this stage start EXAM QUESTIONS. Whatever subject, even if you don’t know the content well enough, just do them and get into the exam practice alongside revising content if necessary and trust me it’ll work so much better. Once again, this is something that people are so stubborn about but. it. works.

Even if your subject is a new spec (like all of mine) and there are no past papers, use old spec past papers just so you can learn the exam board technique and learn simultaneously through the mark scheme.
