honestly, to write quickly, you have to be able to recall the information fast. so, just learn all the content really. then you can respond to a question easily. most of the time, i complete the paper within an hour and still get 9's. sorry if this advice is not the best, that's what i do
also, practice writing regularly like you would practice typing. its an essential skill for all exams
how do u actually revise for this exam? i literally have no clue and itd help w some advicesdo i do practice papers for it? do i memeorize all the key facts?do i need to know all the facts and figures for the case studies (e.g. the close deatil about the Nepal and Chile eqs?)do i revise through seneca?are A3 memory sheets useful?
