My Admin Teacher doesn't explain properly what we actually need to know for the written paper?!

I know what is expected on the computer as thats what we always do, but what do we actually need to know for the written paper?!

Any info will help

Basically to make it easier for yourself in the exam you need to learn all the theory from the outcome books you'r teacher should be giving you.
It seems alot but most of its starightforward and shouldnt take long to learn.
Thats what i done last year and i got an A so goodluck!!

Try highlighting headings and sub-headings. Thast way it'll make your books nice and colourful to look at and will split sections up for you!

remember not everything in the notes is going to come up in the exam. just focus on the main points.

i got an A last year and for my notes i just simplified everything to bulleted notes on cards.

try the past paper questions, i dont know if they are available in shops but our teacher had booklets made up.

it's usually the same stuff that comes up each year so just focus on these topics

just focusing on main points is good for passing but thats about it because its the little obsure things in a course that come into exam paper to seperate the men from the boys if you will so certainly the main points take priority but you must leave time to study the little extras for those big grades

Hmmm just an idea....methinks I'm going to sort me notes out into a booklet type thing.... big folders are too much hassle to cart back and 4ward esp on a thurs.Yes that is a good idea....then i'm going to highlight them and *perhaps* do some notes from them.Ok that post was a ramble but someone on this topic gave me an idea.

Summaries are just about done and so i'm really panicking about the prelim.

I know how you feel. To me learning all the theory is very boring too! You could spend some free peroids or time at home a few days looking over each outcome. If you start soon then by the time the final exams arrive in four months from now you should be familiar with a lot of it. It's easier said than done though eh?
