    If you were doing well and actually doing your homework and paying attention in lessons throughout the year then you have a chance. Read the revision guide.

    With history you remember more than you think. Have you tried a past paper to identify your weaker areas? Once you identify those, just cram them which is easier than cramming the whole thing. If you want a quicker alternative to doing past papers get a family member to test you on everything and write down the areas you struggled in and learn those.

    Read your revision guide at any chance you get ( before you go to sleep, when you're on the toilet, and when you are eating or whatever).

    yh same. i've just been making flashcards all day. Super boring. In the exam if you have no clue what to write, just write anything that sort of relates, it always gets you marks.

    Mind maps. Do them from memory to see how much you know.

    make a brief mind map on each time period you have to focus on? So cover public health, treatments, causes of disease, famous discoveries etc. and that at least if you know it briefly you can gain some marks in the questions. Also, just remember how to answer the questions so you can gain as many marks as possible.

    yup, if you've paid attention throughout the year, you know more than you think. look through past papers and find questions you have a hard time answering, look through your books and find the event and learn it

    if you have a text book start reading through make condensed notes and jot down key words
    or go on bbc bitesize or getrevising there are resources to help you
    you still have time to get some revision
    practice your timing by doing at least 1 or 2 past papers
    get off TSR and start working then mate

    Go through the whole specification and select a few topics or sections where you feel like ou may lose marks on. Read this bit quickly and pick out the key points. Try to summarise the key event in three bullet points and memorise that. You'll find the content much quicker to learn since it's condensed.

    If you learn visually then it may be good to make a quick time line or a list of dates if you find it necessary to learn them.

    Once you've covered all the content and think you should be okay with the content side of things then you should move on to the past paper questions.

    What you'd be tested on in your exam is the structure and quality of your essay. So do loads and I mean loads of essay plans and see if you feel confident with that. If you can be able to do that with ease (not checking your book etc.) then you should be okay for the exam.

    Btw this whole thing should be a really fast process since it is cramming. Oh and if you have time practise timing yourself if you think timing may be an issue for you in the exam.

    If you want more help with how to write an essay or methods to revise then let me know.
