Improving exam technique for biology and french watch

    • Thread Starter

    I’m writing as a year 11 student who is currently in her final year of her GCSEs. I am just wondering if anyone has any tips on working on exam technique for Biology? I tend to get high As in my tests (86-88%) and I was just 4 marks off an A* in my mock that has just gone. It’s really frustrating because the questions that I tend to mess up on are data analysis questions, so I’m just wondering if anyone has any tips for improving my exam technique when it comes to these type of questions.

    As well as this, I am in need of tips to improve my French listening skills. I always get As in reading, that with time I can boost to an A*, but I always get Bs in listening and this brings my overall French grade down to a B. I’m just wondering if anyone has any techniques I can try in order to improve my listening skills?
