"But I'm rubbish at spelling!"
Look carefully at words that you regularly get wrong - and break them down into bits - this will help you to see how the part of the word that you got wrong works - it will also provide you with a mnemonic to help you to remember the word in the future.
Do you always hear this word correctly? Sometimes people miss out or mispronounce syllables (e.g. Febuary instead of February)
It is essential to note and practise words or particular letter sequences within words that cause you problems - little and often is the rule. A lot of being able to spell is using your visual memory.

Many people are finding that the spelling section throws words at them that they have not previously come across and this puts them at an immediate disadvantage.
The words used, including the awkward ones, are those which it is expected that a teacher will become familiar with in training - they are frequently words of an educational nature.
