    This sounds really stupid, but what exactly is the pomodoro technique...? TvT
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pomodoro_Technique

    If you're on android I recommend the Productivity Challenge Timer app, if not there's hundreds of other apps/programs for it out there, or if you don't need fancy features any timer will do.

    Does anyone know if we should get a reply from the college when you let them know you'll be accepting your offer? I emailed last week and haven't heard back.

    My son sent his acceptance email to Jesus and didn't get a reply either but he isn't concerned as he did get some kind of 'auto receipt'. And when they firm it on UCAS, that will certainly ensure their acceptance of the offer

    Hope this helps (it has for others doing essay-based subjects):

    1. Facts.

    Flash cards - but with a twist. It's called spaced repetition (based upon how we memorise). Make your flash cards (for remembering dates, names, places or anything factual based). You are going to have six piles - day 1, day 2, day 4, day 10, day 20, day 50. All cards start in day 1, memorise and those that you have memorised go into day 2, those that you got wrong stay in day 1. Next day those correct on day 2 move to day 4, those that are incorrect move BACK to day 1... then continue to progress cards through the complete system. Do the process daily.

    A very, very strong method for remembering facts.

    2. Essays.

    a) Most days practice writing essay plans (not the essays) for a whole variety of possible questions. Do each in 10 mins (to mimic exam conditions). Drive up your expertise in essay planning.

    b) Write an essay in response to a topic question. One a day (yes, every day). Obviously you are going to practice your own board's essays. Also do other boards' that relate to your topics. Make up relevant questions and then write an essay in response. Have your teacher mark some of them. Make this your top priority.

    So, you have two strong techniques, one for fact based revision and the other(s) for essay based revision.

    The very best of luck.
    That is fabulous thanks so much!! Just wondering if condensed information cards or question-answer cards (or a mix) is best?
