In March I tried and failed my AOSB. Obviously I was gutted but I havn't let this put me off trying again. The reason I failed seemed to be a culmination of little things including poor phys, a bad written plan ex and the inability to proplerly discuss in the current affairs discussion. Just a general all round poor effort too be honest. As I've mentioned I plan on trying again but im struggling somewhat with this current affairs business. I read the times as often and as thoroughly as I can and watch question time and the bbc news channel and would usually read the week if I remember to buy it. The problem seems to be that no one I come into contact with has any inetrest in all of this so I have no one to discuss with before hand. I'm worried now that the same thing will happen on my second attempt. Basically I'm asking for tips on improving my ability to openly discuss current affiars and how I can prepare this for AOSB.
