    How do you handle an unseen extract well? I always seem to get confused any advice at all would help.
    One thing that would help is to test yourself on unseen extracts that are similar to the type that you will get in the exam (e.g. If it's an online article, look up random BBC articles of a suitable length)

    Then for each attempt, make sure that you are covering the exact things that you need to cover to get a certain grade that you want.

    And to avoid confusion, plan those things that you know you need to cover and write them at the top of the question page.
