    Hi there!
    I am doing my IGCSE exam this June.
    I am doing my English 2nd language along with other 6 subjects.
    I find it really difficult to concentrate on English when i have a lot of other subjects to study!
    And now i am only few months away from my exam and i am so confused about everything.
    it seems like the weight of the world is upon my shoulder. I really do not know what to do now! I am a bit to late to start all over again!
    So if anyone could please give me SOME advice. Maybe recommend a good coursebook or a certain method of learning or anything!
    I really really want to score an A* without resitting. I can not stand the idea of doing all this all over again.
    thanks in advance xx

    Have you done some past paper practice? You might surprise yourself at how well you may be doing. What exam board are you on?

    Hi there!

    I teach English as a Second Language. Some tips for you:

    1. STOP WORRYING!! You will be fine.

    2. What exam are you taking? Have a look on Google at past papers/exams and Youtube videos.

    3. Find a tandem partner. Someone to help you practice for the oral exam (if you have one). You swap languages and help each other learn.

    4. Do NOT learn when in a panic, take your time and just relax whilst learning.

    5. Find a private tutor and see if you can get some cheap intensive classes. Also, look for Skype teachers too. I teach via skype and charge £10 an hour, so it is a lot cheaper!!

    I wish you the best of luck!
