    I dont mean cramming, I mean the day before an exam how to revise - what to do, how long for?

    It depends on the subject, but for German and Philosophy I will be going through answers I've prepared for any potential essay question that could come up; so I don't have to waste time about thinking what to write.

    The day before I usually go through my flash cards, watch youtube videos & go through notes with a highlighter so I can actively read them. Other than that I don't really do any work otherwise I could be so focused on remembering one thing that I forget several other things. I only spend 1-2 hours revising for the exam the night before, and then I stop at about 7pm and take the night off to relax
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
