    Hi,
    I am taking Law, History, Philosophy and Government & Politics at AS and I was wondering if you guys had any revision tips for my January exams.

    Currently I am reading my AQA textbooks (and class work) and making notes and spider diagrams, then trying to memorize them.

    Is this an effective method of revising for AS?

    Thanks for your help! x

    After you've revised everything, do some past papers. not some. LOTS.

    I did this too last year, and I agree with the poster above - past papers will definitely help you with your revision because they highlight what you need to brush up on!

    I always find it helpful for Law to draw up case tables with the name on one side and the principle on the other with a couple of facts so you know which ones to include where.

    Good luck!
