From what I can remember:
x Allocate time for specific questions. Don't go into the exam hall and hapharzadly randomize your time. Know beforehand that you will spend 15 minutes one the first question, 20 minutes on the second, (for example) and so on.
x Look at the specification and examiner's reports. The examiner's reports tell you what a student has done wrong, what they'd like to see. Make a physical note of them and stick them on your wall and implement these criticisms into your own writing. The specification will tell you all the AO's (A01, A02, A03, etc) and what question you need to implement them in for. For example, question 1 you will need to use A01 (language) and A02 (form) or something along those lines. Take note of that and stick them on your wall and implement that into your own writing.
x Practice at least 2 papers before you sit the exam.
x Why not attempt a paper on here by making a new thread, posting the question and your attempt. I wouldn't mind giving you some more specific pointers than just these broad ones.
