    Hey guys,
    How can you be fully fully prepared for an exam? So if they ask you the hardest question ever, you can do it.
    Thanks
    I think you should first look at the trends if that certain exam? What always comes up? What sometimes comes up? What rarely or never comes up? The rare ones I would presume to be the hard ones so I would focus on those more. Also, read the specification. By reading it, you would not be surprised by the questions that come up.
    Hope that helps

    I've read the specification However, I haven't looked at the trends on the papers. Do you think people predictions is good to really on? I mean it isn't always the right thing

    You can never rely on predictions as exam questions can be really random. Questions can sometimes be on new themes or contexts which you may have not predicted. So revise all the content and analysis so you can produce an awesome answer to any question as your knowledge on the topic should be on point.

    Not all the time, no but looking at the trends has helped me with previous exams. Predicting what's going to come up will cannot always work but just in case some thing in the content comes up that hasn't come up in the past papers, you'll at least know it.
    I know it sound confusing but I guess it is also important to learn everything in the content

    I have 24 exams but it only adds up to 10 qualifications

    I'll get 11 at the end of it, most of my subjects have multiple exams
    Wow ok, I have 17 or 18 exams but get 10 GCSEs at the end of it - this is strange

    There are many ways and if you want the best possible chance I would suggest finding out which ways you like best by experimenting now whilst you have the chance - I wish I had

    As you are on the new GCSEs you really need to know everything inside out so the more times you go over things the better chance you have of remembering them

    3 hours of maths done today: a past paper for hw and some sheets from my tutor. I was out all day yesterday so did nothing. Revision timetable starts hopefully I stick to it! Little bit of German revision for a vocab test on Tuesday. Now time for some B3 revision for Tuesday's test and maybe some English hw. Followed by printing past papers for this week ahead.

    Also I have decided I want 6A* 4A but realistically believe I'll get 3A* 6A 1B. Time to get my head down and get those grades!!
