    I have 1 year 10 GCSE left (history) and I'm worried about my time management. I did okay during my mock exam, but during my actual exams, I have been running out of time with very little time left to go over my work. During an exam a couple of weeks ago, I realised that I had a lot of questions left and began to have a panic attack. I managed to stop this with breathing techniques, but even more of my time was wasted. I have spoken to the teacher that decides who has extra time etc. and she says that I didn't qualify for 25% extra time, unlike many of my classmates. Any tips for time management (I know that it's a mark per minute, but I don't realise until the end how much time I've wasted)?

    If you keep an eye on the clock and plan out how much time each question will take and make a note when you need to do the next question. Try not to spend more time on fewer marker questions and hopefully if you have more time at the end you can spend more time on the bigger mark questions

    Hope this helps! Good Luck!
