I'm doing the exam and I'm making mindmaps for every topic, then learning them and doing past paper questions.

We still have like 6 days so don't worry :)

Hi, I'm doing this to - Surgery?

Same as everyone else, really - writing out content fort each topic, writing out technique and doing a few exam questions.

We've still got plenty of time - I wouldn't panic.

My teacher (who's an examiner too) says that the content is really small and that the technique is probably more important, so I'd make sure you how to answer (if that makes sense?) each question above all else.

Hi I've got that exam on Tuesday and I'm revising by going through the whole topic and writing out notes on it. I also make sure that I do lots of past questions so that I get used to the format of them. I've been revising for about 3 months now and doing revision twice a week, I just hope it all pays off.

Hey everyone, I don't know what topics you all are doing, so I don't think I will be much help! :)

I'm doing medicine through time and Nazi Germany. If it helps I have a powerpoint on the revolution in surgery?? If you are doing medicine check it out - its quite informative ;)

GOOD LUCK! Happy Revising! ;D

The key to success in any exam is staying calm and actually thinking about the question logically, not thinking about it while stressing out. I too have this exam on Tuesday next week and then the medicine and treatment paper on Friday. What I have been doing for my revision is going through the textbooks and writing down the key information that I will need to know.

However, I haven't just wrote down a load of information into one old book... I have split the sections up into the relevant information I will need to know for a certain part of the exam. For surgery, I have two note pads: One for noting down information about developments, individuals and their impacts and also the way in which developments effected surgery. The other pad is for source enquiry skills, as the surgery paper is a source based paper. 

For my medicine and treatment revision, I have split the information up into four sections. One if for public health from Roman Britain to c1350, one for medicine and treatment c1350-c1750, one for medicine and treatment c1750-1900 and another for medicine and treatment c1900-present day. Doing revision this way helps you to focus on what information you are taking in and also doesn't make it seem so daunting. 

I also frequently complete full past papers on both surgery and medicine and treatment, under exam conditions. Doing this helps you to get a feel of how much time you actually have, takes the pressure off and also makes you actually think about what you have revised and therefore, more information will be embedded into your brain.

If you follow these steps then I assure you, you will at least get a low A. 

However, for you to follow these steps is a little unrealistic as we have such little time left now... I have been doing this for the past 2 and a half months every day of the week. My advice to you for your revision now, seeing as we do not have long left is to make mind maps, study from them, make flash cards, practice them, and also do as many little questions as you can. You could also watch educational videos on youtube or something. Videos have been shown to make you remember things easier because you are paying your full attention to the TV or laptop. 

Revise hard now if you want a good grade. Think of it this way, the more you put in, the more marks you will receive. 

I hope this helped you, and good luck for your exams next week!
