    So it's my exams in a week for Political Philosophy and Reason and Experience. I seem to fully understand the subject matter, and my teacher was amazing in that respect, but exam technique is confusing the hell out of me. Like when I started writing essays at the beginning of college I got A*s and As and then as the months have gone by I've dropped to getting Cs each time all because of my essay technique and I don't understand what I'm meant to do.
    Do you argue strongly for one side? Do you have equal counter arguments? Do you refer to the question constantly? Basically do you write it like an R.E essay?
    If so I'm pretty disappointed. AS philosophy seems to massively restrict you from having your own ideas.
