    Hi, I am taking my GCSEs next year and I am really good with all my revision and I also do extra revision every night for the subjects I don't understand. The only exam I am worried about is History and maths. I have come to terms were I know I will just fail maths anyway no matter how hard I try but I can only hope I pass . I am really good at my history and am achieving A* in class but I am really worried about trying to remember everything I have learnt as we don't know what is going to be asked and I'm afraid when I sit it I won't remember anything on what is being asked as there is just so much things and people and events to remember. Is there any advice I can take to try and remember most of it?

    Don't bother remembering every little detail in History. Learn the key events and the months that they happened (don't bother with the days) and learn one or two supporting pieces of evidence for each key event. That's it.
