    :yep: . The key here is to learn how to answer the exam questions once you've learnt all of the actual content. Usually, exams are looking for certain words or phrases, and they will be how you get the marks. Once you've done the exam papers, make sure you read the mark scheme carefully (fill in your script with the correct answers when you mark it), and then read the examiner's report that comes with it :yep:
