You're in the exam, see a question which you either do not understand the question or simply did not revise the topic well enough, what do you do?


Me personally I would just identify the topic which the question is based on, try to "Re-word" the question and adding keywords from that topic and trying to make it a logical sentence.

However, for the essay question If you did not revise the topic enough, Its basically a failed A level right?

Panic.

Na but for real in my philosophy exam a few weeks ago the question 'explain the problem of conceptual causation and empirical causation encountered by interactionist dualists' and honest to God almost no-one knew what that question meant, so in that case you just have to logically guess what they mean. Like use the definitions of 'conceptual' and 'empirical' and think about what they might mean in terms of causality and then relate it to the interactionist theory.

I did have another q which I wasn't very certain on either and once again you just gotta sit there and really try and logically think about what it could be asking even if you've got no idea.

Pull out pencil
Sharpen it to a fine point
Stab self and get posthumous A*
If that is a thing xD

In all seriousness, smash that keyboard with every subject buzzword I have. The answer is in there somewhere!

Haha! Can't smash a keyboard in the exam though, which tbh I would rather the essay for biology to be course work and perhaps a more in depth answer is requried.
