    Who is resisting their gcse English next week ? This is my four attempt at gcse English and first time doing the new aqa exam. Any tips ?
    Hopefully you have done all your revision now and you have made an effort to improve from the mistakes you identified the previous times.

    I can only suggest

    Use all the time.
    Use it proportionately i.e divide he marks available between the minutes in the exam and answer at that pace i.e halfway then answer half the marks worth of questions.
    Answer the question and take care to understand what it is asking for.
    Plan your essays if you can.
    Hopefully you have had some practice.
    Dont give in and fight for every mark.

    Bit late in the day but you might see some relevant videos.
