today i was unable to attend my classes due to the intense hay fever symptoms at the moment, so i spent the day resting and reflecting on my exam results.
i have currently received my results for english and history and picked out where i did well and areas where improvement is required. despite not doing mainstream english and history in year 11, reflecting on the exam papers brings a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment on the achievements of the year.
i’m quite nervous to see the results for the rest of my subjects tomorrow, but at least i know i did the best i could
10:32|| haven’t been on for a while because I’ve been on holidays and haven’t really been studying… Anyways I’m back and I’m ready to get back into the study habits for the end of year exams that are coming up!
Phew! It took a week and a lot of chocolate rice cakes (😍) but I finally got through my half of the French Revolution Area of Study 2 summaries - because the workload was so heavy my friend and I split it, thank goodness!
How did your history exam go?? Also, I am picking up history revolutions next year for vce. Do you have any tips coz I am kind of freaking out.
the exam was good! there was one question that was a bit of a curveball, but overall it was easier than i expected :)
tips for history!
make summary notes throughout the course! it’s very useful when you get to the end of the year
remember a good handful of quotes and statistics! if you know what rev you’re going to do for section a and section b in the exam make sure you have relevant quotes for that aos (i did russia section a, and had historian quotes from aos2, and for france section b i had quotes for aos1)
make a timeline! textbooks usually have them but its easier to remember if you make it yourself (laminate it and stick it somewhere you often go eg. shower, bathroom, back of a car seat)
i find easy to remember things if i record a mini-summary voice memo amongst my music
if you’re really not getting it watch a documentary or two (some may not be accurate though so :/)
flashcards! great for policies, dates and important events
try to actually enjoy the subject! it makes everything wayyyyyyy easier trust me
