Help Studying/Remembering for HistoryWatch
Does anyone have tips for remembering dates and facts? And also any study tips specifically for History?
There are 3 key revisions tools i would use:
-Timelines (used for key dates)
-Mind maps (Information on whole topics)
-Revision Cards (Definitions of Key Terms/ Key individuals)
For history exam technique is key so past papers should be completed
-You know your strengths and weaknesses- But focus on your weaknesses (Don't sit and revise topics you are confident on and ignore those you are not)
-Little and often is better than one/two isolated marathon revision sessions
-Sleep is important revise at 6-7 in the evening not 2-3 in the morning
That was a huge help for me at GCSE, so maybe this could work for you too? Maybe if you don't want to do it with dates, you could do it with key facts you need to learn?
Hope this helps!
