    My friend chose history for GCSE, and she got a really good grade overall for it. She revised by doing mindmaps of the topics, and then trying to answer questions which links to the source/evidence, something like that. If u need anymore help, then i could ask her

    Step 1. Close TSR.
    Step 2. Get some revision thingymajiggy, e.g. your book or a revision guide.
    Step 3. Open your book/revision guide.
    Step 4. Read what's in front of you.
    Step 5. Turn over to the next page.
    Step 6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until there are no pages left.
    Step 7. Hope for the best.

    (This is kind of a joke, sorry, haha. It's basically what I do though. Maybe do a few past papers after learning!)
