STEP 1: Study ONE topic per day. 

When you get much closer to the exam – try to squeeze in topics 3 and 8 into one day. This will give you time for STEP 5

STEP 2: For each topic, randomly choose

  • 5 Paper 1 questions; and

  • 5 Paper 2 questions

Try the questions and mark using the markscheme. You will want to work in 40 minute time blocks. Set your timer and turn off any distraction. Have a 10 minute break between sessions

STEP 3: Note down your mistakes
If there’s anything you got wrong – note what you learned from the markscheme about the question in your revision notes

STEP 4: Don’t overthink
DON’T overthink or spend a long time focusing on any one concept. If you have time in the day before the exam you can cram it, but in the meantime, just hope it doesn’t come up in the paper.

STEP 5: Unseen Questioning
You need to know the kind of questions that can be expected on the exam day, a final unseen mock exam (that you set for yourself) will help familiarize you with the syllabus, pattern and difficulty level of the actual exam. Try to do this 2-3 days before the final exam.
