Do past papers see what you're not good at then work on it, also you can use revision guides most importantly, try your best.

Just try not to be nervous! I know it sounds pretty obvious but if you panic, there's more chance you won't do so well. A tip that I would give you is the definately leave 5 minutes at the end for checking your answers, it really helps and you are sure to come across a little mistake that could be the difference between grades! Also, look through the exam paper before starting, you always feel more alert at the beginning of an exam. If you find a question on algebra that requires a formula, write it next to the question, then it'll help you when you get to the question and even if you don't you could gain a few marks! Good luck:D

I don't if BBC still have some GCSE bitesize revision stuff on their website, but I found that really helpful last year.

But the best thing to do is go through lots of past papers, definitely. If there are any areas you're really struggling with, find a friend who gets it, and ask them to explain it to you.

GO ON MY MATHS IF YOU HAVE A PASSWORD

BITESIZE

PRACTICE QUESTIONS

DRINK AT LEAST 500 ML OF WATER BEFORE THE EXAM AS THIS HAS BEEN PROVEN TO BOOST BRAIN ACTIVITY AND GET YOUR ADRENILINE GOING (FOR MATHS)!

GOOD LUCK
