- practicing with past papers so you get used the time limit and type of questions
- flash cards for revisions or any other technique which suits you
- keeping yourself on a par with the specification could help in covering learning objectives

I HAVE MY EXAM IN JAN. and the only problem for me is to get marks off the mark scheme, the ms is sooo specific and annoying. Also, i find it very hard to apply a variety of concepts to one question which is approx 4-6 marks. how should i improve with 2 weeks left?

yeah they could be but then at least you've got a rough idea of what kind of details to include when a similar type of question is asked...

while practicing each paper look at the topics covered using the specification; use mind maps while revising those topics so it could be relatively easier to relate the concepts

practice past papers with time limit

is this for GCSE or A2 and which board?

i see.. just saw the specification and although unit 3 is fully based on practicals, unit 1 also has certain investigation related questions like this one for instance in Jan 2010 unit 1 AS
(i hope you know there are 2 core practicals in unit 1 )
