    eww thats disguisting i would not be able to cope with learning northern ireland all over again, such a long boring course. the america in the 1920s part isnt too bad though.
    I'm so fascinated by 1920/30s America anyway so I already have sound knowledge of it, I mainly just need to learn the causes of the wall street crash and its effects and Hoover's solutions to the depression. How long did it take you to revise northern ireland? The unit 1 exam is in 12 days and I haven't started revising ni yet oops

    id say i probably revised for four/five days straight for history last year (at least three of them on ni). it was my last exam last year and i had a week between it and the previous exam so i guess i was pretty lucky. its such an awful exam cause you have to write so much in so little time and its worth 50% of the final grade. im just glad we had that ca.

    Omg no way I didn't know it was worth that much of the grade! 2 hours is definitely not enough time to answer all the questions Do you think I'll be okay in terms of revision time then? I can revise history pretty quickly because I enjoy it but my teacher predicted me to get at least an A so I'm really starting to feel the pressure!

    honestly, ill say youll do great, if youre predicted an A youll be fine, grade boundaries for history are generally low compared to other subjects.
    for history id say just write everything you know, in history examiners only give marks for what you get right, the dont take marks away for what you get wrong.

    I got 88% in my mock in January and that was with very very very minimal revision but I had a sub teacher at the time because my actual teacher was off sick for a few months and I think the sub was a relatively easy marker so I'm afraid if that isn't reflective of what i'll get in the actual exam ahah, I should really stop spending so much time on tsr and revise for the poetry exam I have on Friday lmao.

    And omg I just so happened to look at your about page (fabulous music taste btw) and I see that you're also doing das physics, how are you finding it??? I am literally struggling with this years work its so complicated

    I do re and english lit with aqa and the rest of my subjects with ccea, so far the aqa exams haven't been too bad so I'm praying that fridays poetry exam will be good. We do an unseen poetry question too but its worth the least amount of marks in the paper (I think its worth like 18 marks and the seen question is worth 36)

    The biology mock I did in January included some aqa questions and they were worded so badly (I ended up getting a D in the mock lmao) ccea science is way better in my opinion
