Ive got my GCSE Physics exam in a few weeks and Its going to be really hard. I need some revision techniques and tips on how to stay cool on the big day, thanks

From what I've seen, even the best prepared get 'butterflies', but my recommendation would be practice all the problems over and over again. I'd also pick an especially difficult problem from each catagory that I might be faced with and give them special attention. I'd practice the night before, then sleep well, knowing I'd studied hard. The next day before test time I'd devote another hour or two to quickly review all the practice problems again.
Good luck

Besides, make sure you know every single concept of physics that are in your syllabus. Sometimes, knowing how to do a problem doesn't mean you know the concept behind.
