    Get your paper back, see where you went wrong, don't make the same mistakes in the resit.

    Yes, but you have to pay a certain amount.

    I don't even see how it's possible to get an E in politics if you revise 4 hours a day.

    In future, I advise you to make notes in bullet form for every question you know think will come up, to make sure you don't fail.

    Once I have these notes, I learn them parrot fashion to make sure I'm fully equipped for the exam. If you just do past papers, read a book and write out the contents you have no guarantee you'll remember everything in the exam. If you can sit there, and write out 20 facts for 1 question from memory you know you'll do well.
