    I know everything for English GCSE but then again, i don't want to come across as being that guy who says he knows everything but when it comes to the exam he gets shocking grades.
    I've been revising for a month, i knew the material i failed because i couldn't be bothered to do exams.... Stupid mentality ..

    So should i be chilling or revising? i've done a little bit already for like half n' hour.

    I think you should be going through it just a bit more, so you don't regret anything and you can chill all you want after the exam, You don't need to do proper revsion, just keep going through stuff, maybe go through model answers etc.

    Hope this helps.

    best of luck for your exam.

    Yeah i understand what you're trying to say.

    best thing is that you go over what you have learnt because then again you don't want to feel that regret feeling.

    And also go through past papers in exam conditions. Make sure you also mark them with the mark scheme.
    This could indicate what grade you're currently on. Also it could show if you have finished on time

    Best of luck. :goodluck:

    Sit the whole paper in one go - and get your teacher to mark it and give you feedback.

    Surely there is someone at the school who can mark it? Where are you sitting the exam?

    You never know. If you do more work you just might end up with a better grade than you wished for.

    OK - that sounds very expensive for an exam - wouldn't your old school allow you to sit the exam there?

    I'd still recommend trying the whol paper in one go and then see if you can get someone to mark it for you.
