    Im in AS, doing Psychology, Sociology, Geography & Theatre Studies, and I really feel like... I know what to write - but not HOW to write it, what is the most efficient way in structuring an exam and getting an A or even full marks? Do you know anybody who has by any chance?

    What do I need to do in order to make shure I can get a very high A?

    Im so like grrr. I don't know what their looking for? Our teachers don't really gear us?

    Help

    Thanks you :o:

    P.S: This is especially for Sociology, the others is more of: How to get a high A? Any ideas/previous experience?

    I only have experience with Geography, but from what I recommend is to always stay ahead of the game. At the end of each lesson, ask your teacher what you'll be doing in the next lesson and read up on it! It'll make stuff you go through in lesson a lot easier and when it comes to the exam, I think you'll find it easier. It's a lot of hard work though, so you really have to be putting the time/effort in to do well.

    I hope that was of help. :top:

    With Maths, I think the best way to revise is to do a couple of the end of chapter questions and see how you do, if you find them easy, move on to the next topic.If you are still struggling go back to the start of the chapter and look over the worked exercises...I found it useful at AS to write the worked examples out if I couldn't grasp a concept.Also, always go over the topic you did in the lesson the same night just to ensure you have the hang of it.

    Maths is a really difficult subject (in my opinion), and it is so easy to forget what you have learnt if you don't learn it properly when it's fresh in your mind.So just make sure you can do the majority of the end of chapter questions and you should be fine when it comes to practicing the mock papers when you've covered more of the work.

    Goodluck with your exams,I'm sure you'll do fine because you obviously take your work seriously.

    Arr thank you very much,
    That was all really useful but I do not study maths
    But I'm shure like going over I should do with all of them - I just feel I understand it... So should I still go over it?

    Sorry, I just saw "maths" and jumped to conclusions.lol.:o:

    It's difficult to know how to revise when you think you know the work well enough.I'd just do past paper questions on the topics your doing in the lesson, you will soon know whether or not you know the topic well enough.If your getting high marks, then move on to the next topic and if your still struggling you will know you have to revise it further.Im not doing the same subjects as you,but that is what I tend to do for Chemistry and Biology because it cuts out revising topics you already know, so you've got more time to perfectthe things you don't know so well.
