About me

I'm a 2nd year French and Spanish student at the University of Exeter, though I did attend the University of Oxford for 6 months in 2014 hence being able to help with interviews and MLAT applications. I have straight A* at GCSE, two of which were sat extra-curricularly, and I received A*A*AA for my A Levels, in Spanish, General Studies, French and History. I have previous experience as a tutor for younger students at my secondary school, Altrincham Grammar School for Girls, for both AS level French and GCSE English, and am confident I can help to improve exam sitting skills as well as knowledge of the subject.

Questions Sally has answered

How do I decide which essay to write?

During the exam, the essay titles are out of your hands so all you can do is pick the essay that suits you and your knowledge best and go from there. Some people can be tempted to only learn one book in detail, but I would advise against this, because it seriously restricts the essays you can answer well. Instead, try to go in to the exam with a vague idea of the main themes of the book and therefore the potential essay questions. If you have an idea of what you'd write for each probable essay, then you'll have something to talk about no matter what comes up, and quotes that can be adapted to fit the question.

How do I plan an essay under such strong time constraints?

Ultimately, in exam conditions you have to prioritise speed during the planning time, as usually you only have about 45 minutes to write each essay. Therefore, plans have to be simple and different buzzwords and thematic heading are the easiest way to organise your thoughts and get the best out of the ideas in your head. For me, I always started with a spider diagram, with the theme of the essay at the centre, and then each paragraph had its own 'leg' with quotes and main ideas. This visual representation of your plan allows you to make sure you don't miss out any important ideas, and is easy to refer to during the writing time if you get lost. Simplicity is key!

How do I remember so many dates and events in sequence?

My top tip for remembering dates is, grab a family member (mums are least likely to say no) and talk them thorugh your history curriculum. If when you're teaching them, you find big gaps in your knowledge then they will notice and ask you about it, and then you know where your thoughts aren't clear enough and you need to put in some extra work You also remember more of what you teach compared to just reading aloud, so it's a really good way to learn.
