Trust me , when it came to coding , I hated it, but the only thing you can really do is practice, as you won't know the pseudocode questions that will come up.
If your teacher gave you coding worksheets etc. ask for copies and answers so you can practice and see how close you got to the answer.
Doing this maybe once a week outside of class from the start of year 11 will help a lot.

Also, depending on what programming language you're being taught you might be able to find resources online from websites like codecademy.com and https://teachcomputerscience.com/.

GCSE Computer Science is a really interesting subject imo and you're lucky that the NEA no longer contributes to your final grade, so good luck !
