    Hi. My first GCSE biology exam is on Friday. I know my textbook pretty much inside out and back to front and feel I understand it too. I've done the majority of the past papers but I'm consistently getting a high B/low A. My target grade is an A* and I really want to bring up my grade but I just don't know how, I feel like I've done everything! Could anyone give me any tips to bring up my grade? Thanks.

    Past papers, spend lots of time doing them, then going through your answers with the mark scheme and analysing where you did well, and what you didn't do well on, and what the mark scheme said you needed to get these marks you were missing out on.
