Who invented revising?

Who invented revising? I'm so bad at it. I've really never been very good at it, it's what I liked about the whole Open University thing I've only done one exam through my whole degree so far. I've got my 2nd and last coming up on the 3rd of June and honestly this revising lark just isn't for me. It probably doesn't help that I'm doing history and a lot of that requires remembering specific historians who I quite frankly could care less about lol. I enjoy history ALOT I just don't enjoy the constant back to back from one historian to another. I know what my opinion on matters is but examiners don't care about my opinion they care whether I can prove my opinion with other historians opinions. How do I prove it if I can't remember the bloody historians? 

Exams have never been my area of expertise. I remember through school people generally thought I was "smart" I think a lot of people were surprised when I got my exam results, I was happy with them because I worked damn hard for them but there were no A's in there although my Maths really should have been I mean FOUR marks?! come on! Whoever the examiner was on my paper that day must have been a tight fisted old git because I'm sure they could have found 4 marks from somewhere LOL. Megan will also hold over me forever that she got a A and I didn't, her A was in Drama, of course she would get an A in that subject haha.  A good demonstration would be my history GCSE I got a A* in every single one of my history essays/coursework through year 10 and 11 and then when it came to the exam I don't know what I did but I came out with a C overall, exams suck! 

Revising though I've just never had the knack for it. I literally just try and stuff as much in my brain as I possibly can and hope that whatever I've managed to stuff in there is enough to do the job and if all else fails just hope whoever is marking it is having a particularly lovely day and feeling generous. I'm lucky that they are coming to my house so I don't have to worry about my belly rumbling and disturbing the person next to me and I get to eat sweets whilst I'm doing it and hopefully it will just make me feel much more comfortable than if I were in some stinky hall somewhere full of anxiety and dread. 

Hopefully though the light at the end of the tunnel is that it will be my last ever exam ever and I will officially be out of education until I can decide what it is I would like to do with my life, which is still to be decided LOL. 

As always, thank-you for reading guys and chat soon

  1. Read this just as I woke up and was already dreading another day of revision! I'm so close, I finish on Friday but before then I have a genetic engineering exam, French exam, and macromolecules exam. 2nd year Biochem is haaaard! :P I don't like the way intelligence is examined, remembering and regurgitating facts and numbers doesn't make you smart, and not being able to remember them doesn't make you not smart! I'd much rather have an opinion I can argue about that write the same stuff everyone else does. Don't worry about not deciding (I say that while I'm still comfortable at uni, this time next year I'll be panicking haha) I don't think most people know what the hell they're doing with life :P xo
