I hate revision.

Fact.

I would like to get hold of whoever invented exams, nay literacy, just to cover all bases, and hold them firmly by the neck until they die a very slow and painful death, while holding bloody revision notes in front of their face so the written word is the last thing they see before they die, probably going to hell afterwards.

These are my feelings on this matter.

Back to the books ...

    You know, call me a thicko, but I never quite 'got' revision. What was I supposed to do? Just read all of my old exercise books!? - That was hardly going to sink in was it?!

    I know what you mean Richard - revision seemed sooo pointless, so I never bothered with it...

    I showed them all when I landed the top job that I have now.

    In a call centre.

    My current method of revision is, in the space of a week, writing up an entire semester's worth of notes as a result of not writing enough during the actual semester, and then once that stage is completed, moving on to the 'learning an entire semester's worth of notes off by heart to regurgitate it all back in written form during the exam' method.

    If ONLY all i had to do these days was read over old exercise books.

    My method 'sinks in' but pushes everything else out. Of my brain, that is.

    Oh the joy! Pass me your happy pills when your done with them please richard!

    I never bothered with revision, either. Didn't bother with uni either, though, so probably not best to talk to me about stuff like that ;)

    Revision, wasn't that reading notes on the bus on the way to school and writing them down on the desk before you forgot them again?

    It's amazing - I managed to fit an entire 2yrs of A-level revision on a single side of A4. I didn't do very well mind.
