    Medicine and treatment on edexcel history B? Omg this unit was the worst, the craziest and the stupidest ever.... So much to learn about so many different and boring things.

    Ok rant over, I did this in yr 10 and got a B in this unit. My worst scoring unit. I remember using a edexcel history book; a man with a beak on it :confused:. I used this and past papers on the edexcel website.

    I used this revision technique for my other history units and scored much more highly in those, but couldn't do it for this one

    Yeah, I made notes in chronological order (so when I revised from my notes I was kind of going through a timeline). I made detailed notes on the main people; like Hippocrates, Galen, Jenner and whoever else I learnt about. Then once I memorised that, I made sure I could explain some of the things they did and also made sure I knew how much they progressed medicine or treatment in their time. Then I would go over the book and memorise a few minor pieces of information just so I have a better understanding.

    I make my own notes from the textbook, in a way I can easily understand. Because just reading the textbook is too boring. Then I would go through my notes and memorise the detail. I didn't memorise the whole thing, because when I used the textbook to make my own notes, I only took the most important information. Once I had learn that I would only then focus on the less important details. (Take it in chunks if you want) As you do this your knowledge for this boring topic will grow. I started revising about 3 weeks before this exam, but that was because I just learnt it just before the exam, so it was still 'fresh' in my mind. (I would leave about a month though, or even more if you want the top grade) I was more confident on this unit that my other unit-American west-but I got a B in medicine and an A* in American west.

    Oh yeah, I also remembered many important dates.

    But the main thing to do is know the people, know what they did, how they did it, and to what extent it progressed or regressed/stagnated treatment/medicine.

    Then once your knowledge is good you have to practice your exam technique. Past papers will help a lot for three reasons. 1) As I have just said, it will help practice your exam technique. 2) Helps with your timings; history is like an english exam but with less time. You need to know how much to spend on each question. 3) Knowing the style of the question. Some of the questions get repeated but with a different person. This can prepare you for unexpected questions in the next series of exams. If you can think of any other reasons for doing past papers do so. You can either do the actual past papers in timed conditions with fully-detailed answers, or you can bullet point the answers if you thinks it's too much essay writing. Personally I did bullet point answers for the first few papers then did the rest as if I was actually sitting the exam.


    hope this helps
