This time tomorrow I’ll be having my very first look at the exam paper.
Today it’s time for last minute skimming over of the material that I didn’t quite get around to learning properly up to now…
There’s the TMA questions to have a look at. Sometimes examiners have a rush of blood to the head and include questions in the very same area or at least in an area that’s similar enough to be helpful in formulating an answer. Not too likely, but then 45 mins or so is all it takes to have a quick look at them.
The course guides are very useful for this course. Reading the chapter summaries and the key theme grids can prompt some thoughts that might be useful in an exam. I’m finding that this is more time consuming than I’d expected: 90 minutes a booklet.
Reading over the answer to the seen question lots of times in amongst all the above seems sensible. In optimistic moments I think that’s an easy way to get, say, 60% on one question which equates to 20% of the overall paper which in turn means that just 30% on each of the other two questions means a pass. Or was that in pessimistic moments?
Finally, there’s leafing over the chapters in the notes that I didn’t cover and/or the course books themselves.Copyright © 2004-2014 by Foreign Perspectives. All rights reserved.
