I used to love creating revision material for my exams. No, really. I did!

I'd buy a big wad of A3 paper and a bunch of coloured pens and set myself up in the garden. I'd then take my revision subject by subject, module by module, and make all the information as concise and as easy to read as possible. This then made it all easier to remember.

By having everything colourful (and colour-coordinated) stuck around my room, it'd be nicer to look at and I'd be more inclined to make the effort to remember it all.

Remember that you always know more than you think. If you've made the effort, you'll be fine. Deep breath ...
