    Thank you!
    Same as every other:
    1. Master the core material- make revision notes i.e 25% or less the size of main notes or get a revision book.

    2. Practice exam papers- use mark schemes and work out where you miss marks, then practice again.

    Eventually time yourself. the quality of your notes make stage 2 possible. You should already have completed most of stage 1 as thats why you have lessons.

    Thank you ever so much, I’m in year 12 and I’m currently on a C in Sociology a D in English Lit and a U in Law and I had no idea how to go about it... we have another set of mocks on the 14th of March, so hoping I could do something differently to improve!
