    Yep, I know I should've prepared better but okay I'm going to properly start at 9:00pm. Work up until 1am. Then wake up early tomorrow to fit in a couple more hours. Hopefully it'll be do-able.

    I've put you in the OP. I think that's perfectly manageable! Yes, you're capable of achieving this. You could even go through the unit twice or more in that time, in my opinion. Let us know once you've finished revising for it so I can tick your name off in the OP for that unit.
    Good luck

    Thank youuuuuuuuu <33333 will do!

    Good idea OP, it should be motivating.

    Okay so I have a History Tsarist Russia exam in 7 days. :indiff:

    I've covered content, don't know it all though. Attempted about four or five papers. I doubt anyone would have an answer for specifically Tsarist Russia, but if anyone has any ideas for History generally with what grades I can achieve or anything I can do to remember content fast then please help out this lost soul.

    I did it in 4 days and got 96%. Definitely do-able. Not bragging just offering some advice.

    PLAN ESSAYS! You don't really have time now to make detailed notes so just keep repeating the key points/arguments until you've committed it to memory. When that's done learn some key facts (don't cram too many though)

    Good luck

    Lol university exam tomorrow morning, started revising yesterday...

    If it makes any of you feel better, I did AS sociology last year. The only revision I did for one of my exams was to quickly read through our work pack about half an hour before. Still got an A in that exam, with a B overall.

    I believe in you all!

    Can I go from 29/60 to 50/60?

    Or at least get a grade A?

    Can I still do it?

    Is there time for an A?!

    This one isn't a real exam rather a mock on the entire unit buttt..

    Maths S2- 5 hours. :rofl: :sad:

    Okay, no- if we count tomorrow morning then it's 7/8 hours.

    Thanks, I've added you into the OP. Let us know once you've finished revising for it so I can tick your name off.
    I don't do History but I personally think it's only possible if you dedicate all your time from now until the exam to it bc from what I've heard there's so much content to learn and the essays are really hard to write as they apparently require a lot of practice. Good luck!
    Thank you Anon. :hugs: Most probably I will be revising for it till the day of the exam. Btw don't you think if you put the date of the exam in the OP would be easier for you as if you write say "7 days" it would have to be updated everyday?

    Yeah it looks like that's what I have to do. :cry: Thanks for the support. :jumphug:

    If structuring your 20 mark answers is an issue (for Edexcel), I could send you some of my full-mark essays? They're on the Soviet Union, though.
    Structuring a bit I get stuck on. I'm doing AQA we have 12 and 24 markers for this unit, but if you could send me any of your essays I would be grateful! Thank you.

    Omggg wowwww. I have some faith now! I need 99UMS to get an A overall for my History A Level. :s:

    So when you say plan essays, do you mean detailed ones? Or like say for 12 mark essays just do three/four bullet points to sum up the essay? What's your tip or a student that may run out of time in an exam?

    Sorry for so many questions.

    I've no idea what you mean by this but I'm not trying to be hardcore nor am I hardcore. Rather an idiot. My unfitting laughter in my post was probably down to this reason. It was out of my control. Or at least, it felt that way. Why you think I would deliberately put myself in a position of failure to gain a spot as a wannabe pebble is beyond me.



    Edit: Fgs. :rofl:

    Got a Unit 1 resit , wanna get full mus hopefully. I have revised the content for about a month but haven't done so in depth and haven't practiced many papers. The exam is in 2 weeks , pretty confident .
    I'm glad you're feeling confident. You can do this! I think 2 weeks is plenty of time for you to refresh on your knowledge, especially as it's a resit.

    Sorry for so many questions.

    I don't mind the questions

    By plan I mean make bullet points of the main arguments with info of the evidence you will use to back up your point. Don't make it too detailed. Writing out plans will also help you consolidate the information.

    I don't have much to offer for improving timing though, sorry! I understand the frustration of running out of time. Perhaps say get straight into it and write fast from the beginning.

    Yes, we can!

    + I don't believe it matters what anyone else says. All that matters is what you do and how you perform. Ignore the rest/don't pay attention, it'll most likely just make you more anxious and you don't need that rn.

    Thanks, Xenon. Yes ofc, I think you can definitely do it. You have lots of time. When you're marking the past papers just make sure that you know where you're going wrong. There's no point moving onto another past paper if you haven't solved the problem on the last one, you know? You could watch youtube videos on those areas that you find most difficult/something and work through textbooks answering all/most of the questions bc it'll ensure that you don't make the same mistakes again + stuff. Good luck!

    Oh yes, thank you for pointing that out.- I didn't realise. I'll change it all up tomorrow bc I'm too tired rn but it's a much better idea.

    More than okay. :'3
