    My exam is in November . And I don’t know were I stand in my history. Our class average is below 60%. What should I do in the meanwhile to make sure I’m ready for the oct/November exams. I aim for a A*..I really don’t know were to start

    • Mr Allsop says:

      IGCSE History results are not judged in terms of class averages, so the first thing to do is to look at your own specific grades on specific papers. Is there a pattern to which type of questions you do well on, and which you don’t? Which topics are you able to look at a Part (a) question for Paper 1 and score full marks from your memory? More importantly, which ones can’t you? You have to secure your knowledge of the units and then be able to deploy that knowledge to answer the specific type of question.
