    hey, I got my AS results for sociology and media back today and they weren't good...
    Media - D
    Sociology - U
    The thing is I really like media and I thought I was doing okay but I guess not...
    I just want to drop sociology if that's possible because I'm not learning anything in the classes and I'm only really doing it because we had to do 4 subjects...

    Anyways, we were given revision guide for English and Media today and I've already started reading the English one page by page but by the question bit I've already forgot most of it again...
    Is there any other ways to revise??

    PLEASE help... I want to do as well as possible but if I can't remember the stuff I'm revising I doubt I'll do well at all...

    Don't just read things!

    If you do something with what you're reading that makes you process it - like summarising it, making a mind map, or even explaining it to someone else then you will learn a *million* times better than just by reading!

    *definitely

    No problem. FWIW I love Coggle, which is an online spider diagram/mind map thing, but you just need to try a few things and stick at what works best for you!

    Okay grades but in comparison with other members at my school, not too well.

    I do loads of things to try make sure I remember at least one! Ill start with notes running along side the module to ensure I keep on top of it, then mind maps coming close to the exam and flash cards which I'm go over everyday ideally! In the days running up I do silly things like make recordings of myself recording key things and listening to them everywhere and anywhere! The on the exam day I will go over the mind maps and flash cards then listen to the audio! My policy is the more you do and the wider variety the greater chance you'll remember! It becomes a bit tedious revisiting things all the time but it works!
