Okay guys, don't judge me but I've procrastinated so hard this year. Like, extreme procrastination. I'm currently resitting my A2 History and Philosophy exams, and one AS exam (yes, I probably should've learnt from last year) but instead of resitting English, I picked up Intensive Sociology. Due to certain circumstances and procrastination, I've fallen behind. I literally don't have any notes or anything, and my exams start in 3 weeks.

I've tried my hardest not to panic and do the notes, but it takes up waayyyyy too much time, and I can't get as much done as I would like in the day. Can anyone suggest a way I can utilise my time, in order to get through both the AS and A2?

Of you dont have any notes then I would consier buying a revision book and using that. Notes are helpful to make but they are time consuming. This would then make it faters for you to revise and give you a chance at practicing past papers. I dont think they make allowances for procrastination.

I'll do that. I've tried printing off revision notes and using those, but it's easier to understand and remember when I do them myself. Do you think using mindmaps of key ideas, and then making some notes around that would help too?

I think im suggesting buying some,

if you believe you can make them in time then do that as you absorb more by making them. Mind maps, flash cards whatever, just make them fast and effectivelt tbh you already ought to have completed this task by now and should be onto past papers. You will have to do the best you cna in the time available.

I think I can get the AS notes out of the way, the problem lays with the A2 that follows. I'm breaking down the subjects into bits so it makes it easier to study. Philosophy is fine, I can make that work and I know where my faults are so it makes it easier to fix. History, I'm just going through the information again and making the notes, essay wise, I do a plan at the end of every topic. Sociology is the problem, there is a lot more information than I had anticipated, it's an awful subject.
