    Hi

    I'm nervous about the summary question - in practice I tend to either write too much to make sure they don't penalise me for not writing all the necessary points, or I do the opposite: I infer too much and summarize more than I need to.

    Does anyone have advice for the summary question?

    Yes.
    In the actual exam, you make 15 points first which can literally be opied word-for-word from the text - that's 15 marks

    Then use these 15 points to produce a shortened paragraph, summing the text up in your own words - bear in mind this is only FIVE marks

    Aim to write about 1 side for the paragraph summary.

    this igcse exam tomorrow i'm at peace with. I got an A in my mock...so that's pretty neat

    the computing exam, however, makes me want to shoot myself. millions of times. an eternal shooting.

    How about you?

    Yes.

    I would write paragraphs according to the bullet points.

    So one paragraph per bullet.

    Thank you!

    Are you sure that they will allow you to write the 15 points using their words and not your own?

    Yes, I guarantee it. You use their words first and then convert that into a paragraph using your own words.

    Good luck c:

    Yeah, science is tricky. The exam questions are far too slippery for my liking.
    I don't do history, but I've heard there's a heck of a lot of facts to learn. Sounds a little agonizing, but hey.

    Me too, the pressure is what i'm worried about. and getting drowsy/tired.
    But screw that defeat-ist attitude. You're gonna do SMOOTHLY in these exams, got it? SMOOTH as anything.
