I have my Year 12 end-of-year exams coming up. My Politics exam is going to consist of a 30min ideology essay, a 45min source essay and a 45min essay. My History exam is going to be 2 45min essays and a 60min extract essay. I don't even know how I am going to be able to cope just writing essays back to back like that. It is writing for 2 hours straight or 2hr 30mins straight and I know it is just going to hurt my hands and it is going to be exhausting. Does anyone have any tips on how to make these sort of exams with 3 essays in them not such a dull and tiring experience.

Heyy,
I only did politics so I may be able to help you there. But, for me personally I feel like.. 1. The adrenalin will kept me awake.
2.The consequence of not trying my best= not seeing what my true potential could be.
3.Plan out all your point/paragraphs before, so even if you get bored or tired you have a plan to check off that you have written what you need to.
4.If the questions are interesting, it wont be so tiring. I know the last tip may not be as useful because you wont know the question, but it does help if you loveee the subject. Also try not to press to hard when you write so your hand/fingers don't hurt as much. And time really does flyyyyy so much during some exams. *Planning in detailll really helps me personally. Good luck on your exams xx

Honestly, no one loves exams. I do English Lit and History and they're great but writing for 3 hours straight is never fun. Just make sure you know the content and can get started as soon as possible. The time really does fly in those exams, they give you hours for a reason!
