    I need help with legit last minute revision.. I always used to get either an A or an A* in history GCSE but in option 1F the only decent grade I'd get would be for the Idian side of the paper and hardly get passed a B. For the American side just happen to constantly fail and I guess demotivates me to revise.

    The exam is tomorrow and I have only thoroughly revised theme 1 out of 5. Any help? I can't fail this exam!

    Hey, i have a history exam tomorrow aswell on Russia because we are studying communist states and honestly the best thing to do is practice loads of exam questions that you have previously done! just plan them and its a win win situation because you are learning exam techniques and content too. i also find its much better than just going through content because that is long and gets very boring !! hope this helps

    I'm hoping there is the option to avoid a section 3/4 related question. I find transport, cinema, etc so dull. Would love a presidency or civil rights question.

    I'm literally trying to revise society and culture change, the changing quality of life and Reagan right now. Can you summarise the main points I need to know?
