I'm doing the History (Europe and America) and Politics papers. I'm really struggling with what to revise, especially as there are no mark schemes!!

Good luck to everyone x

I found with the case of Computer Science and IT, it follows a pattern every year, so I know what to expect in some places. Maybe check for patterns for your papers.

Good luck!

Look at the past papers, identify patterns or repetition that can help you revise for it, just looking at Creative Writing, you know you have to write a story based on one of four subjects, do a short commentary on that. For Psychology, the first 4 questions of Section A have always been the same:

1. Identify any problems with the data gathering method used here.
2. How might the design be improved?
3. Identify a positive aspect of the design implemented.
4. What are the ethical considerations involved?


Hope that helps!

Yeah, I noticed that questions often repeat themselves the year after, sometimes with one or two things different or even exactly the same.

I'm doing Europe and America so not really sure I can help but I've found just making exam answer plans for various questions quite helpful!

Late to the party but I'm taking Computer Science and Psychology tomorrow. I'm kinda worried for Psychology though since they don't have marks for each section listed and I'm used to having them so I know how long my answers need to be.....

First paper of the day done! How did everybody find it?

pastel.roses I found the CompSci one great, they literally didn't change the last question on IoT, luckily I revised it and did that question, so I think I'm good for CompSci, just my IT one left now.

That was the one question I didn’t do!!! I think it went okay though, I had no idea what one of the units was but I just guessed and hoped for the best. Good luck with IT!!
