    After completely messing up my history mock, I've realized I really need to figure out what I'm doing in GCSE history. I need to get an A (at the least) but I have no idea how to do it.

    I'm doing Crime & Punishment with a Germany depth study.on the OCR exam board.

    Firstly, can someone give me advice on learning all the knowledge - I've been enjoying taking notes for the last year and a half in class, but now that I actually have to use them, I'm a bit stuck as to how to memorize everything - it's very overwhelming.
    Also, I really need to learn some sort of technique to answering exam questions - I know the basics, but there's so many different types of questions I need some sort of rules to nail down - if anyone could let me know of any useful resources, I'd really appreciate it.

    Hey there! Sorry you still haven't received replies for this.

    Here's a few of my revision tips I used for my History GCSE:
    • Summarise the content of each module on one sheet of paper and memorise this
    • Condense events into 3 bullet points [Linking with the point above]
    • Make a list of significant events and their dates and highlight each one you manage to remember
    • Do every single past paper question
    • Plan your essays with bullet points within a minute
    • Time yourself when doing essays
    • Practice writing really fast
    I hope this helps!
