So, I'm sitting my National 5 exams this May and I'm very scared because I really want to pass them all with A's so I can make an easy transition to Highers as I would like to study medicine or a subdiscipline. I know it's a long shot but I would like to try and get into an Ivy League school or something like that. I know it's merely impossible but a girl from my high school went to Harvard and a boy went to MIT. I am willing to put in the hard work but I don't know how to do so. I have past paper books of English, Maths and Biology and I have done a few online. The subjects I am most worried about are English and Chemistry as I don't really understand close reading or ionic/covalent bonds or balancing chemical equations. Although, I have already written a discursive essay for my folio work snd it was surprisingly easy, I'm just worried about the exam.
The exams I'm sitting are;
How can I optimise my studying skills to achieve the maximum result?

All I can suggest is that you go over all the content you have learned each day when you get home. Continue to look at pass papers, books/online and sometimes these "how to pass" books give you decent tips. I would start your revision early but not too much to begin with or you will burn yourself out.
Try to spend a little more on the subjects you're on sure of and less in the ones you're more confident with.
If you feel it's all too much, prioritise your main subjects which are key for your career path.
Hope this helps.
