    I love the subject but dread the exams. The timing and the specific way of answering to get marks really stresses me out, i find it the most stressful exam to do. Half term revision is a godsend though
    thats my problem too, im going to have to go over exam technique cos theyre so specific -_- what course are you doing for history?
