And i haven't even started revising. Does anyone have any good cramming tips?
I went to a rave and got a bit fucked up. I stayed up dancing all night then i had to sit a GCSE english lit exams on no sleep and the worst (and last) comedown i've had. After that i feel as though i can handle anything.
it'll be fine
Dexter listened to a French tape in his sleep, but the tape got stuck on the phrase 'Omelette du Fromage'. When he woke up, that was the only phrase he knew.
Don't overdo it. Slow and steady wins the race.
captivating thing I saw on TV as a child.
The only question in his French exam was "What is the name for a cheese omelette in French?", and so he ended up with a A+.
I have revised a bit but I have a far more worrying dilemma. I'm trying to call someone and they're not answering, I've rung three times now, SHOULD I STOP?
You're doing AQA AS Sociology?
And no, once you've started something it's best to finish it properly.
Let's cram together!
you are not necessarily doing aqa as sociology :(
I am shitting myself. Do you have any idea what might come up?
If i fuck up now i'll end up spending the rest of my life working in Tesco. I CANNOT RETAKE.
So far I've 'revised' sociological perspectives and social class, and this evening i dropped my ethnicity notes in the bath. I've still got that, social policy and the absolute BITCH that is gender to look through, but I think I'd better just fail and get it over with. My teacher said it's highly unlikely pupil subcultures will come up so i'm not revising it. i bet it comes up.
oh god, i'm going to fail. memorising names. gaaaah. how are you revising?
by the by, i just rung again. he didn't answer. OH GOD, I'M A STALKER AND A FAILURE.
I'm revising by sitting infront of an open text book whilst watching heroes. The book is on the chapter about family diversity. A question on that almost always comes up. I have some felt tips and big paper though. i may make a mind map in a bit.
Surely it would be more productive to stop typing posts on DiS and read/write notes instead?
But where's the fun in that?
That sounded really horrible and smug. I'm not generally a horrible person.
Haha, dont worry.
Seriously though, I find taking notes the best, think it goes in more if you actually write it.
Bulletpoints work best.
Then just read it over and over till it hits home.
We're doing education. I can't remember what was on my family paper. All I can remember is that I was 20 minutes late for it, and I'd only revised two topics for the paper. Both those topics came up and I got full marks.
Maybe I can afford to fail this exam? Yeah? NO. Okay I'll revise. Okay.
Are you sure you can't remember what was on the paper? Have you done methods yet?
weird, we did family in january. I think it might have featured family diversity. one sec.
yer i think it did, and almost definitely social change and the family.
but that doesn't mean it'll come up this time :(
should i ring him again? five times is too many right?
I might as wel revise that. And it depends what you're ringing him about. If you left your shoes at his house after a party or something then it's perfectly reasonble. If it's for social reasons then 5 times and this late at night may be getting s bit wierd. Unless you're really drunk. Then it's ok.
thank you. now i can not ring him and just be safe in the knowledge that i've already fucked it up by ringing him 4 times.
Oh shit, i've just realised i'm not even using my phone.
i'm a total stalker. :(
I didn't mean to offend you. Next time you see him make up an excuse like you desperately needed some revision materials that only he had. And delete his number before you decide to 'just try once more'.
Surely common sense will be enough?
but no, common sense is not enough to remember a bunch of wankers' names like Boudon, Bourdieu, Bernstein, Durkheim, Wright, Parsons, Willis, Bowles and Gintis, Pryce, Driver and Ballard, Coard, Mac an Ghaill, Mullard, Smith and Tomlinson, Mirza...
And i'm off to bed. Good luck for tomorrow. And don't worry about the guy. If he's a nice person he'll politely forget the phonecalls and you can carry on as normal (whatever normal is for you).
I love everyone on this forum
