Revision Method Question

    So 2 of my A-Levels are history and politics which as you all know are very essay-based subjects. I am aiming for the top grade but time management can be a problem for me so I need to hit all the points I need to make fast and avoid waffling.

    For these subjects I have been constructing perfect answers for any possible Q and handing them into my teachers. I have exactly 4 weeks until my exams and in a week I plan to start memorising my marked answers. Not word for word EXACTLY but close enough.

    I would say I am fairly good at learning essays off by heart and I was wondering if the rest of you thought this was a good idea. Has anybody here done a similar method and been successful? Although, as I have said, my ability to recall is decent I am worried that I may not be able to memorise such a vast amount (on the other hand questions can be repetitive).

    Any advice?

    Hi! Maybe try condensing your essay into the main points and key details on something like a mind map.
