    I was just wondering,whether anybody had any tips on how to achieve very solid A's in essay based subjects such as Philosophy and Politics.

    Currently, i'm averaging very low A's, roughly 82% so any advice is welcome

    Also, advice on how to revise effectively would be great, because i can't really judge the quality of my essay since it's the holidays.

    Yes!
    Go to my thread in the Politics section, i've put up loads of Politics notes.

    You need examples, but you need to be able to argue a point clearly more.

    To get the top marks, it has to be really quite perfect.

    Practise is the best method, essay technique.

    Practice, do past papers............ i learnt a great way to really revise is to write out your notes instead of just reading.......... or do summaries that way you sort of have revised twice as you read and then as you were writing it was narrated in your head

    best of luck
