preparing for exams without revisionWatch
so im wondering if anyone has any tips on other things i can do to get myself ready. for example, how i can take my mind off of things, how i can approach the actual exam (4 essays in 3 hours) without getting too panicked. thanks.

Hope you're doing alright now
i think if your too overwhelmed, it will be better for you to make a list when everything you need to get done. break it up into small tasks so its easier to tick things off. (i wouldnt recommend making a timetable because if you dont keep up ull get even more stressed but i mean if that works for you then go for it). try to tackle each task one by one, dont think about the next task until uve done the one before. dont think about the time uve wasted either, you cant do anything about that now. just do what you can do now and remember even a tiny bit of progress is still good progress.
So if you feel as though you cannot revise the content of the exams there is still other things you could do. Maybe you could plan out some basic ideas of answers, like the structure of the answer. For example, look at some past papers (if available) and do a bullet point plan to how you would answer each question, this will be really good practice so you can formulate this easier, and quicker when the actual exam comes around. Also something more basic/simple to revise might be some key word definitions, which you will get some credit for stating / quoting in the exam.
I hope this is helpful and I hope the exams go alright!! Good luck.
