I am sitting higher modies this year and i am beginning to like it. i have been achieving good grades in practice tests and 9/10 in my nab. For my first practice DME (done at home ) i got 17/20 of which i was ova the moon.
I was just wondering how do i cope with only having 1hr 20 mins do answer 10 marks evaluating and produce a 20 mark report as i feel i take ages deciding on sources then cross referring and thn tinging it with background knowledge.

1. Only take between 10-15 minutes on the 10 marks as u hardly have to write anything for the answers
2. Take highlighters to the exam and highlight the points for your arguement with one colour and against with another
3. I wrote about 4 sides for the report and i never had less than 17/20

Hmmm, that might not work for everyone. We had a talk from one of the exam setters before the exam last year, and he pointed out that you can go to extremes with that, and it just wastes time. He suggested that just labelling the margin with "A" if you've used source A etc, and BK for background knowledge. That's what they're looking for
