Most of the time when I ask for revision/studying tips most people say,”Past papers are your best friends”

Silly question but how exactly can I actually use past papers to their full potential?

My subjects are:
-English Lit and Lang
-Maths
-Triple Science
-Geography
-German
-Religious Studies

I don’t know how to use them to better my grades? Also what do people mean when they say that you should ‘memorise the paper/mark scheme’ can someone please elaborate because I’m really stupid.

I just want good grades and apparently past papers are the way to go so I want to know how to properly use them to improve/get high grades.

When I do exam paper, I ensure I do them in exam conditions. I also give myself 10% less time than given because in a real exam, your nerves will affect you so ensure you are doing past papers in less time than you would be given. Also, after finishing a paper, immediately check your paper and mark your answers. This ensures you have your answers fresh in mind and it allows you to reflect better on what you did. Other than that, just keep practicing

Thank you so much for your response! That’s a really smart idea to give yourself 10% less time! I’ll start to try that(^~^ )
