Hi,

I'm really stressed about how to efficiently study for my politics exams that are coming up in three weeks. I struggle with politics a lot and currently I don't know the best way to revise. I'm aiming for an A, so if anyone has any advice on how to revise in a way that I can get an A, I would very much appreciate it!

do practise questions on everything (and I mean absolutely everything). ask your teacher for some or find ones online. doing the questions (or even planning them out) helps you find the gaps in what you know, so you can then revise using flashcards and mind maps!

Thank you so much for the reply!!

So should I just plan out every essay that I can find? Also (I'm assuming you took politics haha) do you know how to really make sure that you achieve good grades?

I'm currently studying politics but this is just something I've found works for me, and currently, I'm a straight A student. I try to find questions that come with mark schemes, so that I can grade my plans (like how much of the stuff on the mark scheme I've included in my plan) or you could ask your teacher to check it over? Or even a friend who's on the same course?

I'm currently a private candidate so unfortunately I don't have a teacher to help me :bawling: Sorry for the multiple questions but I'm going to start writing up essay plans, and I wanted to know if it's necessary to have lots and lots of examples throughout your whole essay?

Do you mean statistics and evidence to support your point? Because if so, I try to use one example per point. So two examples, therefore, per paragraph; evidence to support my main point, and then my counter argument.
