    I've just replied to your other thread about how to use flash cards, but I didn't know what subjects you were taking!!

    My last point was about flashcards/post-it notes.

    It's literally what I did with my History GCSE

    All the important dates, write them on a post-it and stick them up somewhere you will see them. Granted, it'll send your Dad crazy, but least you'll know them all off by heart by the end of it.

    You can then use the flash cards to write a point at the top and then expand on it, using the main ideas.
    Once you learn the main point (maybe one key word or something) practice remembering what goes with it.

    So say you put a specific date for Germany 1920-1930.
    you can put a few key words, and use your previous knowledge to expand on that point - getting you the marks. It'll drill it into your head then, so you'll know it all off by heart by the end of it haha.

    As long as you know the stuff, you'll be able to relate it all to each question depending on what it's asking you.

    My mum knows the exact date the Berlin wall got ripped down, thanks to my post-its during my GCSE's. oops:oops:
