    Hi, I just had my mock results from my school and they're not too good. I know I can do better seen as My targets are all A/B. What I've been struggling with the most is history. The highest I've got is a low D and I really want to do well in it. I get very distracted in the lessons because I'm a very kinasthetic learner and my teacher just sits there talking for the whole lesson. I really need help with revising at home seen as I don't get much out of the lessons. I also have one other problem with revising; I have very intrusive chronic tinnitus (loud ringing in my ears). So I can't sit in silence when revising. I hope you can help thanks in advance

    Maybe put on some music whilst trying to revise? I personally made mind maps but also looked on youtube for any videos that might help- there were quite a few depending on the board

    Look through some past papers but instead of fully answering them make bullet points on the important points which yu can add to later, then when you think you ar confident in the particular topic you can try and write out a full answer.

    Hope this helps
