When it comes to History, I'm fine with the exam technique but when it comes to knowledge, I'm poor in that department. I've made notes of topics but when it comes to getting the notes that I've written into my head then I find trouble with it.
Does anyone have any suggestions for me to implement or try?

You could try using flashcards, with a short question on the front and the answer on the back. I find these help for me as actually writing them down is helpful and then testing myself later on is also useful Also colour is SO important to me, I can't just look at black and white. These are just some of my ideas, once you find what works for revision for you then you're set

Have you tried looking for documentaries or films? There's tons on youtube and they can be helpful if you're an auditory/visual learner, or maybe record your notes and listen to them back a few times? For AS last year, I made very detailed flashcards, then simplified that information into mind maps and tested myself or got my family to test me. I found that worked pretty well, but it mostly depends on what kind of "learning style" you have, so that might not be best for you, but timelines, etc might work better for you, so it's probably really a matter of trying out a couple of methods now and seeing what's going to be your best option when you get to study leave
