One top tip Practise sketching and drawing. The design question (Q1) is worth ¼ of the marks so gain confidence of designing under pressure by practicing drawing in both 2D and 3D as well as annotating drawings with “construction details” (cut/fold lines, joints, fixings, materials, processes, movement, close-up details etc).
