I got full marks on the mathematics interview test at my local college. I took it to see how I would do on the Access to HE course. The first question was "Spell out the number 3462"

I got full marks in my PE mock exam!! PE's super easy though, it's basically just common sense.

I haven't got full marks in anything but I did get full UMS on one of my science controlled assessments... But I think a lot of people do that anyway.

Also may get full UMS on my business CA, if the UMS boundaries move down a mark

But then they're controlled assessments not exams I guess

A few in Edexcel's Maths A-level modules. Probably the easiest subject to get 100 in the exam (no essays!)

Oh, the advice bit - just practice and do past papers and make sure you know the knowledge.

Haven't done the entirety of my GCSE's but for the ones I have taken:
Achieved full marks in P1, P2, C2, Maths (not full, but really close), R.S and a few language units (Speaking, listening, reading mainly - these aren't too hard to get full but writing is a killer.

My advice, personally, I think it's better to understand whatever you're learning rather than just memorising it like many do. That way, regardless of the question, you should be able to answer it. Besides, getting full marks isn't necessary and doesn't really indicate anything significant about that person. Humans make mistakes and you will make mistakes in exams - however - if you're determined to achieve full marks then check your paper again at least twice and add anything you possibly can if you think it could get you a single mark. A lot of people capable of achieving full marks don't as they are able to finish the paper yet won't bother checking through it thoroughly.

Yes in my english lit GCSE I got full UMS points in one of my exams, and the other one I dropped 1 mark but still got my A* in it, resulting in an A*. How I did it? a good english teacher throughout out the year, even though I thought I didn't listen to her, I guess I did!!!!! and maybe some luck (I only revised the day before!!!). Will this repeat for my As English lit exam ? F*** NO!!

Thanks, that was really helpful and it was the type of advice I was looking for.

ye. Memorize the mark schemes. The questions are always repeated and all the answers have the same pattern.

I'd go as far to say that you don't need any text books depending on the subject. I hardly used any. Just memorized the mark schemes a couple days before each exam.
