A message from the author:
“In my life I have been a student, teacher, mother, examiner, speaker and author. All of these have given me ample opportunity to reflect on what to do in exams – I have taken them (with reasonable success), I have taught all sorts of subjects (maths, computer science, psychology) and helped students to exam success, I have guided my own children through them, I have marked thousands of A level papers and also been involved in writing exam papers, I have spoken at student conferences about how to achieve exam success, and I have written many book chapters and magazine articles on exams. In this book I am going to tell you everything I have learned.”
