    I got a D in sociology, C in religious studies and a C in psychology.

    I was just wondering if I could get these grades up to at least B's because that what the university I'm looking at wants.

    I am retaking one unit in sociology and one exam in religious studies.

    I also wanted some revision tips as I struggle with essay questions in sociology but I also struggle to learn the content. For AS revision I made flash cards and a booklet, notes and also posters. How much time should I spend revising and what else can I do?

    B grade, huh? I see. Tbh, if you are achieving C grades, you're nearly there, my friend . How did you study to grab that C? Do the same, but work a little harder. Why not make flashcards and draw brightly-coloured mind maps? They're really effective, I use them for revision . It's even more harder for me, because I only want A* and A grades . Because, I need Oxford Uni. First, know what type of learner you are: Visual (that's me ) , Kinaesthetic or Audible learner, then use the techniques they suggest. Good luck on getting that B.

    It's not how much time you spend revising, it's how you revise. If you struggle with essay questions, then there's only one remedy: practice. What really helps me with learning content in a subject like biology, which has both a lot of content and essays in exams, is to look at the major topics for which an essay could be set, read about them, close the book, write it all out and compare and, if you've missed anything out, do it again.

    Getting the Cs to Bs shouldn't be difficult but you may have to retake more than one exam i sociology to get it to a B, depending on your UMS scores. The A2 content is much harder than the AS so the attitude that 'you'll do better next year' hardly ever works out. I learned this to my detriment in maths. xD
