    I've got my first exams coming up in 12 days, does anybody have any tips for me about how i should prepare? This is my first set of exams I've ever done in the hall. I'm in Y10 btw...

    Firstly, stay calm. You're only in Year 10 and these are mocks after all.

    The best thing to do is be organised with your revision (set up your timetable depending on which ones you have got first) and try lots of different methods to see which work for you.

    Make sure you are prepared before the exam with your pencil case and equipment and that you have a good nights sleep (this is REALLY important)

    Good luck
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
