Revision and exams can be daunting and overwhelming, which is why ensuring that you are well prepared and organised in advance can help to combat these feelings and allow you to feel confident. There are a number of important revision skills and techniques that will enable you to make the most of your revision time and, the lovely folk that we are, we have compiled them all for you here :)
According to Jo “biology is life”, and not just in the literal sense! It is something she is incredibly passionate about, and loves sharing her knowledge with her tutees here at INICIO. In this blog, Amelia interviews her to find out more about this inspiring obsession :)
Amelia Bargh, one of our specialist politics mentors, studied PPE at the University of York. This degree is increasing in popularity, more and more universities are offering it, and it is becoming increasingly unclear what this holistic undergraduate degree entails. Therefore, we have asked Amelia a few questions to provide us with a unique insight into this empowering course.
Although INICIO students rarely find themselves in this predicament, as we have mentored and guided them towards realistic goals, you never know what’s going to happen on the day of the ‘real’ exam. It might be that you were on track for an ‘A*’ all year, but then on the day you misread the main essay question, panicked, or ran out of time, which led to your results day not being quite as happy as you imagined.
You need experience to get a job and a job to get experience.
I hope this blog post is the first step to helping you out of this predicament!
