practice lots- practice with friends/family and try to get more comfortable with the presentation so it hopefully makes it easier when it comes to the day. Perhaps talk to your teacher and explain if you're feeling anxious about it. Try not to worry too much either public speaking is nerve wracking but it's good experience in the long run.

good luck! I hope it goes well

I'm not sure if it would be 1-1, if it's the same as my GCSE speaking I had a couple of years ago, I think it's supposed to be a group presentation. However, if the idea of the entire class worries you, you could always ask to do it in a smaller group. My speaking group had around 4 other people in it. Smaller groups, made up of people you're comfortable with, could be a good compromise

I would have a word with your teacher, as you should have got some leeway due to your speech problems. The presentation needs class questions at the end, so you would need to do it in front of some people. Just take your time, include technical lingo, don't use flashcards if you can and you'll be fine.

if you ask, I'm sure they'd let you do it 1-1 or with a smaller group of people. Quite a few people I know did this. Part of the grade comes from you handling unknown questions that the class or teacher ask so as long as there is at least one other person to ask you questions it should be fine to do it 1-1 as long as the teacher agrees :-)
