OCR GCSE Core Science resit tomorrow ! Any advice? watch

    • Thread Starter

    What can I do now, my resit is tomorrow in a private exam centre. My exam is B1, B2, B3 so it's biology.I want to get at least 75- 90 UMS points which is B to A*. I'm quite strong on the content but I think my understanding of the wording of questions along with data and calculation based questions will catch me off guard. What can I do?

    If I were I wouldn't bother doing past papers now because it's a bit late, but if you have any marked past papers, look at your mistakes and make sure you know what you did wrong, write down the correct answer so that if a similar question comes up you know EXACTLY how to answer it. This is exactly what I did before my GCSEs and I did quite well.
    But make sure to not strain yourself today and get plenty of sleep.

    Good luck and I hope this helps!
