    If you're an a* student you shouldn't really have to, because you'll do loads of past papers. You should pick it up

    Test papers, Test papers. I did none, so I got one mark away from an A* in GCSE. Now I do them in A level and I'm on an A*.

    Go through the syllabus and learn the theory, then past papers are key for the application to questions. Past papers are always the way forward, so do loads of them.

    If you do the past papers, you'll realise there aren't actually 'a billion topics' and as soon as you've learnt the techniques you'll be fine

    Past papers past papers past papers.

    Totally agree with Crazy Paving. I worked through the book whilst I was doing my GCSE exams, making sure I understood the content good and thorough, then I did past papers non stop. If you simply revise the content, I'd say the best you can get is an A or a B but if you practise doing past papers in timed conditions, you could get that A*. Practice really does make perfect.

    I have lots of exams coming up too which i need to revise for. I did a timetable - study english on monday, maths on tuesday etc... so i get an equal time for revision.. half an hour - an hour every day on different subjects... takes up alot of time in the end, but if you want good grades, then you have to revise. Good Luck.
