I am also predicted an A* but I usually get in the 40's, do you simply use a revision guide and test yourself with revision questions?I feel like it is not enough for me as the exam questions are never that straight forward
I use the revision guide but I don't use the questions. They're way to easy compared to the questions that actually come up.
The thing is normally people say past papers help a lot (they do help a lot which is why I get mostly full marks in exams) however, for my mocks I did not touch a single past paper but only revised the content and still came out with mid 50s out of 60.
I think if you know the content and understand it and can apply it to different questions then u are set for an A*. Lots of people end up just memorising and not actually understanding the content. So my advice is definitely understand everything!
