    Need some urgent help guys,

    right, whenever I revise, i get so stressed if I can't remember or understand things, that I try to remember everything and I know I can't do that. and it get me frustrated and scared that i would do bad in May/June exams and then I sometimes lose concentration.

    I feel that I need to learn and remember everything that I get cheesed if about it if I can't do it and it gets me frustrated and angry, with really bad headaches. I feel that I have a lot of expectation to do well in May/June exams as i done well in my January exams.

    I feel as I can't revise properly at all and I try to remember everything when I know that I need to understand it and I try to learn everything as quickly a possible and I know it is wrong to do that.

    What should I do and help would be very much appreciated. Thanks

    first of all, no matter how hard it may seem.... relax
    i too suffer from high expectations, both from lecturers and teachers, so i try to learn everything and anything in fear of failure

    what i best find helps me when revising essay based subjects (law, history) is to make my notes (written), then type them into a powerpoint, and then a poster. then i'll get my mum to go through it with me first off, and gradually into test mode. it's worked a treat so far!

    I do economics and I've written about half of my notes up, but i do't really think that it works as I am basically rewording my textbook and I think I should stop writing them up, do you think that it is a good idea?

    (for my unit 1 test, i writ no notes up but i just practiced the 25 mark q and asked my teacher to mark them for me, which I thinked worked to an 0extent)

    Only you can know whats working or not, try to reword the text book if your set on that method, you will find it a lot easier to learn that way :-) I also find researching aswell helps, trying to find something different to everyone in my answer.... Not to sure if this applies to economics!

    Try not to worry about it! As long as you're revising, the information will be sinking in! It will just be a subconscious thing and you won't be aware of how much you're absorbing! Don't stress too much about it (although I know that's nearly impossible) and just relax! The more relaxed you are, the more you'll learn!
