    Thanks for the link! The website is very useful!

    In the exam, I always take a bottle of water in, too cool me down and to keep me hydrated (and calm if I get anxious)
    I don't cram in any revision the night before - if I'm not going to understand it by now, then I won't the night before (which is my own fault and I should have asked my teachers for help months earlier). I mostly focus on relaxation and getting a good nights sleep.

    As for studying, revision cards are my favourite things to use, because they work for all different learners. I condense my notes and rewrite them, always condensing them down each time. My psychology teacher said that ideally, you ought to be the only one that can understand those notes.
    And really get to know your specification - there is no point revising useless information in your revision guide if it isn't on your specification.

    Also - work on applying your knowledge, really take advantage of all the past papers out there for you to practice on.

    Hope these helped somewhat!
