    Do you have any advice on how to take notes for AQA AS History? When I take notes it is very time-consuming. How long does it take for you to take notes for one topic? 😃

    I didn't do AS History but I did do AS Psychology which involves a significant amount of note taking. I suggest creating little flash cards for topics and summarise the main points into sizable chunks that you can use as a reminder. The bulk of notes I did from highlighting key points or names in my revision text book and I used different highlighters for different information like pink for study names/researcher names and blue for outcomes of studies, for example. You could try to adopt this approach too.
