    Do you have to do the questions you have been taught?? Cause from looking at past papers there are a few questions I could answer which we haven't learnt anything in class for,

    my teacher said we don't have to do the ones we were taught, but we'd be stupid to do something we haven't learnt. I you have learnt something you weren't taught, and find it easier, I don't see why you shouldn't do it. your teachers not gonna see your exam paper, although its probably best to stick which what you were taught. hope what i just wrote makes sense lol!

    There is always someone who tries to do all 6 questions on the paper and then comes out in a fluster saying "I barely did two thirds of the paper" - the lesson, always read the front cover instructions on the paper!

    Just a piece of advice if you're thinking of doing a topic you haven't studied for because looking at the questions you can do it... I would strongly advise against this, people have tried it but without studying it in class it is unlikely you will know the facts and have the case studies ect. that they are looking for in particular. You may think it looks easy but when it comes down to it you may well regret it.

    I won't be doing it myself, but as long as the individual has revised it throughly at home, and learnt the content, it should be fine me thinks.

    From what i've found most revision books and even textbooks don't really go into enough detail and rarely give the range of case studies needed for an A*. But I suppsoe if you are really determined then there is nothing to stop you, but i can't really see the point.

    It's a bit werid I'm sure we've done some of the stuff before for it but we've been told which questions to answer. Just see what it's like when I get the paper and prob end up doing the one we should be doing just curious though.

    I kind of depend on Revision Guides and Text Books to learn the syllabus throughout my subjects! Some of my teachers are a bit, um, lacking in talent...
