Do as many past papers and specimen papers as you can- if you know which exam board your school uses for English language then you can go on that website and find all the past or specimen papers. All the questions will be of similar structure and have the same amount of marks so it will give you good practice for writing the correct thing for the correct amount of marks. Also, I'd recommend reading a lot since I think part of English language tests is usually a descriptive writing part, and also it's a lot of comprehension so reading fiction books will help big time (might be a bit late now to read tons of books since the exams in 5 days though) but honestly just do past papers and good luck!

Mind maps helped me no end.

Do one for these
Paper 1 - timing, each questions, etc
Paper 2 - timing, each questions
The technical devices - each one and what it means
The sentence structure - each type including things like for shadowing.
Discourse markers

YOU MUST WATCH MR BRUFF ON YOU TUBE. He is an amazing examiner who goes through every question in turn and tells you how to answer them to get the highest markers.

Nope, just keep writing-it can be about anything and from anywhere: newspaper articles that inspire you, front pages of books etc.

I've just been going over each question, making sure I understand what the AOS wants and what to look for. Also helps to plan out sentence starters, connectives e.g for each question. I would also reccomend doing mocks/practice question but don't over do it. I'm doing a mock paper 1 on Sunday and a mock Paper 2 on wednesday but that's it. Don't burn yourself out, you need to rest.

practice questions- you need to nail your exam technique and the way you read a text so if you're not confident on literary devices maybe learn the definitions of some too.
