    I'm a student that's predicted a grade 5 in aqa English language, this is a problem as I want to get to woodhouse, and while my other grades are averaging at grade 7, without a 6 in English language, I cannot get into woodhouse, and the main reason is because I never have time to finish the whole paper

    So my question is, how can I improve my timing? As well as any revision techniques that can help. Would be greatly appreciated if you could help

    Ummmm plan out in advanced how much time you are going to spend on each question and so during practice papers apply this to it so that during the actual exam you don’t run out of time and therefore get the mark that you want. As for revision techniques try practice papers, make flash cards with technology terms on them, and posters etc. I hope this has been useful and good lunch with your English and getting into woodhouse!

    This video is from the old style exams but the principle of time management should still apply https://youtu.be/kE3GIK35gbA

    Practice, practice, practice. I can write 2-3 pages worth in like 45 minutes after practising every day for weeks.

    Practice papers mostly, but also analyse while you are doing it what questions are causing you more problems. If you have a physical problem or dyslexia then make sure your school applies for extra time for you.
