Cramming is probably my fate at the moment, just wanted to know if any TSR students have had any luck with this? Like basically learning everything in 2/3 days and still managing to salvage a good grade?


Thanks!

Do you have really good short term memory?

I think I'll have to cram as well

Memory isnt great, i just made essay plans so i didnt really do content.
I wouldnt advise it unless you have too but it does work, a few of my friends did the same and we all came out with high grades

I never revised for unit four because I just absorbed it all in class...I just practiced papers and crammed all the theories and research methods in a week. Only needed a D for an A overall but got an A in the exam...A2 sociology is the easiest thing ever. I think I miss it a little bit!

You have restored my faith in being able to do well, well done on your grades!

Do you have any example for your preparation style/essay plans?

Robb Webb, the massive textbook, make essay plans on that from each topic and subtopic
Topics eh.. if i remember correctly.
Unit 4: functionalism + gender + science (Hard 33)
Unit 3: Sects+ fundamentalism + Marx (easy 33)
