Hey, I'm sitting the paper on the 27th as well.
Because I'm struggling to remember some of the content I used the blurting method, where I basically write down everything I can remember about a topic in one colour then after I go back through the book and add in everything I've forgotten ina different colour, the notes in a different colour is then what I know I need to revise. For example, I'd write everything I could remember about childhood in a mindmap in black pen, I then go through the book again and write down the important things that I've forgotten in red pen.
I hope this was helpful!! And did you sit the education paper on Tuesday, how did you find it?

I also try to plan answers to 20 markers just to revise how I'd link my points together

Thank you so much for that!! And yes I did sit the paper on Tuesday and I found it pretty straightforward. I think the MIC essay threw me off a bit because of how specific it was to covert participant observations but other than that it was pretty good. How was yours??

Honestly, I think it was okay. I didn't find the MIC essay as difficult because we did a mock paper not so long ago and the question was very similar but I struggle with my timing a lot so i'm not a huge fan of the 20 markers in general. :h:
