    HEY!
    I've been looking around TSR and have not found the answer I am looking for. I do History, English Language, English Literature, and Psychology.
    I am basically aiming for 4 A's. Maybe a B` in History.
    I have made all my notes and everything is extremely organised.
    For English's I know the syllabus quite well, for Psych and History not as well.
    My psychology exam is 11 days after my second to last exam so thats quite a big gap for revision. The struggle is mainly History.

    Ok the questions, pls help if you can.

    1) Is it possible to learn the everything in 6 weeks?
    2) How long should I revise over Easter? (take in mind I can work for long period of time, 6-8 hours)
    3) What is the best revision method?
    4) How did people cope with History, if they did it ^.^
    5) When should I start doing past papers?

    Thanks alot if you reply, oh and I'm doing AS levels!

    Hi there,

    Last summer I had two AS History exams, Germany 1871 - 1925 and Russia 1917 - 1945, and I got an A in both these exams.

    For me I started off breaking the past questions down into points so that I knew the points straight off. Next was to look at the evidence I was going to need to support these points in detail. I found that you can often use the same evidence in lots of different essays which lightens your workload a bit. Try to learn specific figures rather than just general statements (for example, "Stalin's industrialisation increased coal output by x amount by 19xx" rather than "Stalin's industrialisations increased production" as you will gain more marks for this.

    It is definitely possible to learn everything within 6 weeks, or enough to get you an A at least but it's going to be hard work. If you tell me what course and what unit's you are doing I'll be happy to help if I can.

    In regards to past papers, this should come when your breaking the questions down into points as a way of learning and I also made lots of posters to stick on my walls (no more than 7 words a poster though or I find they are less effective)

    Good Luck!

    With history being my favourite I put a lot more work into this than other subjects! I got a B in English Lit, a C in Biology and an E in Chemistry (whoops!) - not the best but good enough for me. I usually start about now.

    Literature is the study of books, poems, plays etc. looking at stuff such as narrative voice, story structure and things like that.

    Language is the study of the English Language, such as its history and how it is used in conversation.

    In literature it's, like Luke said, books and poems
    language is more grammar and pronounciation and yh
