How to prepare for exams (general tips)


1. Create revision resources, whatever they may be it needs to be what works for you. If writing out notes over and over doesn't work for you, please don't waste your time!

2. Use the revision guide to make your notes, the copy from the exam board is your best bet - rather than using copies from other sources.

3. Create a revision timetable if this works for you. Try TSR's tool here: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/g/planner

4. Re-read your notes, repetition is the best method of drilling notes into your brain.

5. As it gets closer to the exams complete past papers. The more the better in the end!

Time pressure : I do section A last as it is easier to rush through. In extreme cases skip 5 marker.
25 marker: 1 paragraph intro , 3 para main argument ( 2 para for and 1 against or other way round) 1-2 para conclusion with recommendations.
hope this helped

Intro should be like a summary of the points that you are going to speak about, its more for student guidance so that you and the examiner know what your going to talk about.
