how is everyone feeling for this exam? Regionalism is my weakest topic and I was thinking about it and we could actually skip revising one topic. Because there's six topics and five questions so its highly unlikely there will be two questions on the same topic. So if you revise all the others well then you could just not answer whatever regionalism question they give. bit risky but it does make sense

I was thinking the same, I'm awful at regionalism but it's way too risky, especially since if the other question is worded horribly or you didn't know what to say for it, the safest option is to revise everything !!!
