To tell you the truth, for this subject I didn’t make any notes at all.
All I did was *naughty* all of the homework for the semester in the week before the exam.
Regarding the 3 options for assessments, being a first semester at uni wimp, I decided that option 3 was the safest option, giving me the best chance to grab as many marks as possible. I didn’t take into account the way that I study, which is generally late, and generally quite crammy (though I’m getting better). Also, my tutor hated me (he gave me 5/10). My finals were my best mark. If I would have chosen option 1, I would have achieved my best mark, by quite a margin. I did manage to get a distinction, but I would have easily been in HD territory if I had more balls and chose option 1 or 2.
Have guts, and take your study habits into consideration when choosing an assessment option.
