Do as many past papers as you can (but learn where you went wrong in previous ones), because in GCSEs there tend to be certain phrases on the mark schemes that examiners are looikng for

Use the mocks as practice for the real thing remember you havent finished all of the work to be studied for next summer yet
1 get a download of your exam syllabus for each subject (this will be handy after the mocks as you will see whats been covered so far)
2 Print it off and highlight what you definitely understand...if not sure whether you understand ...then you dont so leave it unhighlighted
3 speak to subject tutor showing them specifics of non understood areas ...they can help also read text youve written, look at stuff on bitesize, make mind maps or write it on prittnotes postcards A3 poster size if it helps
4 Remember mocks show gaps in knowledge... so you can plug them for the real thing next june
5 Hand over PS3/ XBox /phone whilst revising /working so not tempted whilst revising.... then have 15 -20 min breaks after each hr of study so cup of t phone out then ...not energy drinks as your brain needs to rest after revising not climb the roof !!

Woah 3 exams in one day!

Are yours in class or in hall?
Don't you get study leave?

In my school, we have an AM exam, go home at 10:30-11, and then come back two hours later for the PM exam.

Good luck in your mocks, hope you get the grades you want.

In the hall - we have three halls. No study leave for us I'm afraid.

Thank you, hope you get what you want too!

so in a weeks time I have 5 mock exams.
Additional science AQA - X3
AQA geography
EDEXCEL maths

I literally have barely any time to revise as I have English CA's and I really need to because they are sent to colleges and sixth forms.
What is the best way to revise and do the school normally use the 2014 at now? or in the April mocks?
My teacher was saying that for science we will have the specimen papers?
BIB -
If you mean the exam series of the papers.
I doubt they will use the 2014 papers for every subject. They don't at my school.
They might for maths, as people tend to cheat after the first exam paper, once they know the dates.
Last maths mock they gave us a PIXL maths paper.

For Science, depending if you've covered everything. They will just get a range of questions from different exam papers and put them together to make up everything you've covered.

I don't do Geography, but they might just give you a past paper from a few years ago or something.
