    The key idea is to understand the issues and themes around your topic - write them down and expand into subtopics and into essay questions. Practice essay are just as important as knowing your stuff in my opinion. Having a good essay technique is highly important - makes it easier to focus on your points and analysis so you don't waffle. Write as many as you can and have your teacher or someone else read through it for you. This will make you better prepared for anything unexpected in the exam.

    Revision I find is highly personal, some things work for some and other things work for other people. For me, having lots of notes divided in different colours to represent separate themes helps me to organise my ideas. Essay plans and practice timed essays are also important for me, to get use to the time restraints. You can't waffle - this is important- you must have focused analysis and get the best marks.

    Creating a timeline with all the key dates from your particular topic is really useful for History as it will help you to build up your knowledge and develop your understanding of the causes and effects of each event.
