Start revising

Make sure that you give yourself plenty of time to revise. Do not leave revision for the final days before the exam. Plan ahead and work steadily through it.

Make a revision plan

Creating a revision timetable can add structure to your revision and help you identify which exam subjects you need to prioritise to get better marks.

Do past papers

Doing past papers can really help you prepare for what type of questions you are likely to face as well as allowing you to manage your time in the exam.

Don't be scared - Relax

Although these are important exams, make sure that you stay calm and level headed. Good preparation before your exam will help with this.
