Motivation: Just remember results day, you don't wanna be holding a paper with rubbish grades.

How to keep calm:

Make sure on the day of your exam you are confident and ready to sit it. Be organised, the last thing you want it forgetting some sort of equipment etc. Remind yourself that this isn't where your life ends, exams is just a bit of it. Do you feel anxious whilst revising too?

English Language: (these are my tips for the AQA exam board, possibly similar to WJEC?)
  • Practise your writing skills by writing different types of texts
  • Read books to build your vocabulary
  • Read the newspaper daily and analyse them
  • Watch Mr Bruff's videos on YouTube
English Literature: (same as above, tips for the AQA exam board)
  • Make sure you are confident with the books you are studying
  • Summarise the books you know in bullet points and check if you have covered each important section
  • Analyse every single thing in every poem, each little bit has a meaning
  • Try to compare different poems
And of course, past papers.

Not sure which exam board you're doing but these are specifically for AQA, however these tips can be used for many exam boards.
Here's some tips for your Maths GCSE: All I can say is past paper questions. Only start doing the past paper questions once you are sure you have covered every topic.
  • Work through the ExamSolutions videos if you ever feel you feel like you are stuck on any section
  • Feel free to post in the TSR GCSE Maths Forum if you are unsure about something (make sure provide the question and what you have already done)
  • Do every single past paper
  • Mark your papers and see where you have gone wrong
  • Look to do IGCSE papers once you have done all of the GCSE ones
You can always use the TSR Study Resources for any subject, pretty helpful revision material on there. Also there is a very useful Study Planner on TSR which you may use, if you find that timetables are something you don't stick to then make a list of things to do per day/week and tick it off as you go along.

Check out these awesome revision tips by a fellow TSR user.

I don't know that the design and innovation thing is that you're talking about. :dontknow:

If you need any help TSR is a great platform to ask on. I can help best with your GCSE Mathematics if you like, so you can PM me whenever. What other subjects do you do I may be able to help?
