    Basically I study but I get into the maths exam and it just all falls apart. I do plenary of past papers but I got given the 2017 one and it all fell apart . I’m pretty sure I failed my maths I think I’ll probably be able to get a B in Chen and I will probably get an A or A* in biology ? How do I improve my maths grade? It seems like past papers don’t work for me?

    Past papers but exam conditions.

    Find out why you are failing and probably better time management plus technique. it might be nerves I dont know, but you have to recreate and then practice to identify and eliminate where you have gone wrong.

    If you feel it is the pressure of the exam situation, the stress of that alien environment there is a trick to coping - get yourself used to that silent environment, and become used to concentrating on exam questions when there is almost no external stimulus.
    Its the rules, the lack of external stimuli that make the situation so alien.

    I have written a step-by step guide to prepare yourself for your exam. Once you have read it, it is up to you to put it into practice, and I look forward to hearing about your success.
