    Does anybody have any advice on how to tackle the first year exams?

    The reading/book list is HUGE and there are massive chunks of Old English to translate and write commentaries on.

    I'm just worried that all of the reading is going to be a huge mush in my head and I'm finding it really hard to structure my revision effectively...

    Any advice would be massively helpful

    I always find it good to stick pairs of words together (so the old english word and the new one) on post it notes and dot them around the house so everywhere I look they are there - forces them into my memory :-) also if you're quite musical you try making up a little rhyme to help you remember? Best thing to do though is try not to stress and take lots of breaks
