How’s everyone feeling for the exam? Now that I’ve done English I’m feeling a ton more confident about the speed I can write.

That's my main concern. I don't know if its just that I ramble on too much or I'm a slow writer. I'm worried I'm going to rush it and mess up the quality of my essay or my handwriting

Ah okay. I'm doing the exact same except from the Tsar essays. Here are my factors for each one:
Success of the October Revolution
- Weakness of provisional government
- Economic prolems
- Appeal of the Bolsheviks
Reasons for the 1905 Revolution
- Peasant discontent
- Workers discontent
- Japanese war OR Bloody Sunday
February Revolution 1917
- Role of Tsar Nicholas II
- Peasant discontent
- Workers discontent

* I have gone for the most simple factors as they are the easiest to remember and can be briefly changed for the other essays. So, you could get better ones from just looking on the SQA website! (:

My teachers given us sample essays with evaluations in it so I’m just learning them off by heart. I think it’s best to memorise the evaluations but of course it being so close to the exam it may not be all that possible for you to do so even if you only learn two an essay that’ll still give you a high score and you’ll only be losing two marks.
I remember my teacher saying that for the isolated factor questions all you need to do is compare two factors with each other (whether one is your main factor or not) so if you can’t learn them all then you’ll probably be able to just make them up during the exam.

I hope this helps and sorry if it’s not that good an answer. I hope someone else can be more helpful!😄
