-Flash cards —> something a teacher suggested to me which was SO helpful, is making flash cards and then finding images to put on the front which reflect the answer. So say for example, it was for a History exam, I’d make a flash card and on the front i’d write the question or the topic or the title or whatever, so for example say it was something to do with WW2. Then on the back i’d write the answer. Then i’d find images online that relate to the answer (for example, if it was about Hitler I may get an image of him, if it was a specific statistic i may get an image of that number etc) and i’d then stick them on the FRONT so when i read the question/topic/title, i’d see them images and they’d remind me of what the answer is. Then when you’re sat in the exam, you’ll be able to envisage the pictures for that particular topic.
-Do past papers in timed conditions, and closed book. You’re in year 10 so doing GCSEs but when i was doing A Levels and i had masses of essays to write, I’d find past English papers, for example, online and answer that question as if i was sat in the exam and is time myself so i’d answer it in the amount of time i’d get in the real exam.
