    I don't know how to sum up my revision in history, it's like i have done loads in class because the syllabus finished early.....but the thing is i forget it all quickly. I went through a stage 3 months back where i did alot of revision but forgot that too!! :rolleyes: No fear i started today......don't panic i think as soon as you hit the exam room maybe all the information is subconsciously hidden away! And returns? :confused: i am relying on that! cos im a fool!

    I'm doing that but its on AQA. Do OCR tell you what the first question is going to be on because our teachers told us it was definetly on the impact of religion on medieval medicine.

    I have one exam on tuesday which is 2 hours.
    And one about a week later which is 1/2 hours long.
    And believe me, we have so many topics within the 2 main studies, it's unbelievable!

    Do you have a source based paper as well? Even though the answers are in the sources, the examiners want really specific answers written in a certain way. It always annoys me!

    Yeh I have a source paper as well, and I hate them!!! There always seem to be questions worth about 12 marks which you can only really make about 4 valid points on ... I'm dreading it!! But at least I have a whole week to revise for that with no exams in between!

    All of them!

    This is how the paper goes:

    MTT sources based questions but you will need your own knowledge. These are usually difficult in my opinion.
    MTT usually a choice question where you need detailed knowledge on individuals.
    MTT public health.

    And American West follows a similar pattern.
