    Yeah 'past papers init'. You need 68% ish which should be pretty easy to do since the first 2/3rds of the paper are C/B grade questions

    If it's GCSE and you want an A you just need to get 100% on the easy D/C/B questions.

    past papers, it took me a few past papers before i realised that the questions with the 10 marks are usually a combination of topics such as pythagoras + cos sine + sohcahtoa so yes it is helpful if you pick up on their pattern

    Do every single past paper, start off with doing topic exam questions (you can find on www.physicsandmathstutor.com). Mark them, focus on the areas of improvement, look up examsolutions.net and go ask your teachers if you are still unsure about anything.

    Good luck.

    been mentioned already but do every single past paper available. You'll start to see patterns, especially in the worded questions which is where people generally lose the most marks
