    For my mocks, I revised about 40% to 80% the course on average for my subjects; Government & Politics, English Literature, and History. For my finals, should I...? (excluding the past papers that I will obviously do)

    A. Revise whole course in detail, and go back and highlight points after each topic. Next, go back and revise whole course again for the second time, but with more concise notations.

    B. Revise whole course in detail once, and then go back to highlighting each point after every topic is covered. And then use that extra time not spent going back over the course by looking more at examiners reports, essay plans, etc.

    I will be looking over examiners reports and essay plan regardless, just not as much as plan B.

    Both plans seem great, but it also depends on how well you remember everything whilst revising. If yo understand the topic fully and know it quite well there is no need to go over your work in detail, however, if you have weak points you should concentrate on them.
