    Oh god xD I have memory deficiency problems and that dictionary is keeping my head just above water in French. I would like to take it but then again now learning you don't have the dictionary for the exams it's kind of putting me off! I use colours for revision at the moment and sometimes it doesn't work but some it does if you know what I mean?

    For history medicine and treatment, we did something different we went through Greeks, Romans, medieval, industrial, 17th century to 21st century, pasteur with germ theory, DNA genes, pre history and many more. It was like a timeline of life progressing forwards all mainly to do with England but talks about important people who made discoveries which helped medicine, anatomy, technology and science ect. Like Hippocrates and theory of four humours and German called Koch who expanded Germ theory and so on.

    If I'm honest I don't really feel up to doing the first few weeks because if I decide to change I don't want to catch up on any work I have missed!
    It is bad without a dictionary, especially at the start :/ yeh I'm the same, it worked for French but not for history caus my notes just ended up being full on sentences and colour did nothing to help me remember them, with French I just wrote say 10 words in one colour that linked together etc.

    That's like the stuff I studied in my medicine through time section, quite interesting tbf but yh I sort of touched on some of what I learnt at GCSE in the as level public health section, like the germ theory and Chadwick and Snow. I get that about the trial, there wasn't many at my school that did it.

    Yeah I know I am thinking more history now than French, thanks for all the information tips and advice though I appreciate it c:
