    Hi,
    I'm in Year 11 doing AQA History and I'm having a lot of trouble learning the information. Does anyone have any help how I can revise effectively? All helps appreciated!

    Spider diagrams. Then timed past papers. Boom.

    Write out really rough notes for each bit of the topic. Then do a spider diagram. Then condense this into one big spider diagram. It worked for me!

    An A* (224/240), even though I misread a question and did completely the wrong thing on one paper. I think I dropped about 8 marks for that . . . What are you aiming for?
