Well tis my AS
's next week and I start of with my Critical Thinking exam on the 25th, kind of a doss subject like General Studies that they make everyone take. I actually miss half the lessons all year because of a certain responsibility I have to do, but I got an B+ for my January exam in it so was quite pleased especially compared to those who do the full amount of lessons and got less. There's not much that you can really revise for, its just how you think and analyse a certain scenario.
Next it's IT
, I do the Double-Award so it's two A-levels and that same course time respectively. Again not something you can really revise for as its project based, you just take in your completed project and circle work and tick boxes for an hour
. It's a really good course and I have a great teacher, really great guy and I do think it makes all the difference having a good teacher who everyone gets on with. It's a shame as there not doing the course for next years AS
, it seems all the pilarva that was in the newspapers over the last couple of months have made the exam boards change all of the syllabus for next year.
Then we come to Environmental Science, finally something I can revise for. I love the course, you learn alot and its really interesting but it kinda puts you off to know that it's practically impossible to get an A, if you get a C, you have done VERY well ! Luckily my main Science teacher has spent literally hour and hours making the entire course split up into powerpoints, usually one or two for each unit and a kind of 'Key Terms' note sheet and then popped them all on a CD
for us. That and about every single past exam paper in the last 7 years as well lol.
Next one is Business Studies, once again very kind teacher has placed alot of the course onto CD
for revision and a completely seperate CD
for the Case study.
And that's it for me, one piece of revision advice we were given by our science teachers was to do 15 minutes twice a day 'little as often', doesn't sound like much I know but there really is sooo much to cover that if you cram you will completely forget it. I've started to do some revision but not as much I probably should have done, but I generally find that having a nice lump sum everyday from now on and doing it in quite a relaxed way is quite good.
Well good luck everyone who is doing exams !
