I would say if your that nervous for time go straight to the highest mark question at the start of the exam and work your way through

I would not say that there isn't enough time. I managed to finish my English mock and after checking, It was basically as long as last year's paper. You will encounter time constraits however, and unless you are fast at writing, you will most likely not finish the exam. Bring a watch on the day so that you can tell the time (knowing the time can create a sense of urgency). There are various times which should be spent on different questions in relation to their marks. For example: 10 marks - 7 mins (roughly) 15 marks - 10 mins 20 marks - 13 mins (roughly) 25 marks - 16 mins (roughly) If you want to get the time to spend on a question then divide the marks by 2/3. I would recommend doing that now and learn off the question times. Good luck.

Yes, It is. The only way to get the exam done is as soon as you get that paper, just write as fast as possible and try to forget about your hand hurting you, persist and you will be able to fill that paper.
