I'm feeling restless today - not getting on very well settling down to do any work. Perhaps when I've had some lunch I'll feel better.

Had a lovely time at the weekend. Niall, Nic and I all went cheese festival visiting, which was really fun, even if Nic and I did both end up going to get extra cash for cheese purchases out! Still, some of mine are freezable so I don't have to gorge myself or anything. After that we headed back to the old homestead for cheese, pork pie, wine and West Wing - all very convivial.

Sunday was rather unexciting in comparision but I did get some revision done, which was good. I don't seem to pick up on the same things as the people who wrote the commentary on the sample exam paper though, which is a little worrying. Not sure how much leeway there is in what sort of material you can discuss - I think my answers have been relevant to the question and so on but they still seem to be off base from what they're expecting. Ah well, I suppose I'll just have to see how it goes. I really want to get this unit of revision over with though - the Civil War just doesn't really get me going.

What course are you studying at the moment?
A200 - European history 1400-1900. Most of it's been really interesting but the Civil War unit didn't really grab me the first time round and it's not doing much for me this time either :) I'm finding it really hard to prepare for the exam because as it's a new course there aren't any past papers I can practice on, which is usually my main method of revision.

Yes, this is a thing that I'm rather worried about for my S330 exam as well. I am somewhat relying on making up something that sounds plausible and sensible, rather than giving something straight out of the text book. This worked ok in the TMAs, but I'm not sure whether that is because the mark scheme is generous or just that they wanted some form of common sense answer.
