    I am not prepared for this upcoming History exam on Tuesday. I have done a bit of revision for it, but I have by no means done enough in preparation for it. Although I have been revising for my other exams.

    What's the best way of cramming for it?

    Answering the past paper questions or revising the notes?

    Or are the past paper questions more relevant? As I would be answering the question as well as revising the notes... or is this a stupid thing to do?

    I'm doing history on Tuesday too and have not prepared. For the last three hours I've been doing spider diagrams with key words of the sub topics. I plan to read through my textbook and so once I look at the diagram, the words will somewhat trigger what I read earlier. I hope you understand what I mean and that it helps

    My tip- don't cram too much. If you try and remember to many things in a short period of time, it usually doesnt work. Focus on the main/important topics and cram those down first

    When it comes to cramming, you want to learn the key points only. Better to focus on 5 key points and trust yourself to be able to work off those when it comes to writing the essay than to try and learn 25 points and have none of them stick.
