    After being entered for the foundation tier and receiving a B, I have been entered for the higher exam in November; only problem being I barely know any of the content, and the exam is only 2 weeks away :O
    I need at least an A to get into the sixth form I want in order to have any chance, preferrably an A* :L
    So my question is: what should I do in order to get an A*? Any specific revision techniques? I am currently watching Mr Bruff's english videos and I know I need to work on my timing (which currently terrible) and I do not know how to practice properly as I always end up messing around or losing motivation.
Do you like carrot cake?
