    This is needed!
    I have 3 exams. I do Edexcel History A and the books that I do are The Cold War, Germany and British Society
    Anyone do the same exams? You can still answer this if you don't do the same board as me because I need revision help.. History is very difficult and there's a lot to revise considering the first History Exam is The Cold War- 6th June.

    HELP IS APPRECIATED!

    i rewrite the whole course in my own notes, read it over and over and over and over. im planning on putting important dates on postits and put it in chronological order on my wall. if you've done mocks, your teacher should have gone over them and teach you the writing structure for a particular question, look over them and thats how you learn the technique.

    I did Edexcel History B last year, and even though it's a different course I think you could use similar revision techniques. I found that it helped to my a page for each key person, with info about them and their impact. I also used the hallway outside my bedroom and made a massive timeline to look at, visual cues really helped me. Me and my friends would often ask each other quick fire questions so that when we were writing essays we knew the info inside out and we could just write for the entire exam, eating more stuff in and getting higher marks. Good luck.
