My mock is on monday....
I've been doing exam questions non stop, but I'm always missing out stuff and not getting the full marks or just talking about something that isn't even relevant to the question
Any tips for last minute revision?

do the assessment materials for 2021 since they contain the most common questions : you can find them on the physics and maths tutor website. Make revision cards on those questions that you get wrong. write notes or do revision cards and questions for your weakest topics

Should I only focus on my weakest topics or spread it out? Thank you so much for your help

spread it out. focus more on your weaker topics. but dont forget the most common topics too. also dont do what i did in my biology paper 1 mock which was drawing a linear graph rather than a histogram. make sure you know your graphs and practice your practical skills too.

I say look at the mark schemes especially for those questions where you're not getting the full marks, it really helps me to see what kind of points of information they're looking for and then it helps me remember for the next time I do a similar question. Our teacher always emphasises mentioning specific key words because they always crop up in the mark scheme. Also highlighting the question like the specific command and relevant information can help so that you don't waste time talking about stuff that might not be needed in your answer.
Also writing with bullet points is also a good way to help structure your answers! Good luck with your mock I have mine a week this Tuesday!

You tend to always remember the worst question but im sure the rest of the paper went well so dont stress about it too much!xx
