    No one can teach you how to achieve an A*, but yourself. It is a case of knowing how the papers are structured, as well as previous questions asked. Each year, the papers seem to be quite repetitive, therefore I would say do them! BUT, if your GCSE examinations are still a while away, do not do this as you probably have more to learn.

    Past papers are vital!
    You first have to learn the information and be able to easily explain everything; after you know the basics of a topic it is then about transferring it to get the most marks
    Practise past paper questions as much as possible and create notes/flashcards with the raw information on them.

    Remember it' only going to happen if you are willing to work for it! There is no foolproof method to getting an A* but just keep practising and revising- I'm sure you'll be fine!!
