I made flashcards when I did GCSE and separated them into the topics so I could do them reversely so instead of seeing the event and saying the date I could do it the other way too. Have you made timelines that are colour coded or with hidden detail to test your memory?

Hope these help

Use post-its to stick historic dates, events and details to your wall, picture frames and around the house. Familiarity is key.

If you have a lot of dates and definitions to remember and don't want to make flashcards for each and every one then you could try an online app like Memrise or Quizlet. They are great for on the go like when you're travelling/on the bus x

Some people already have sets readymade for your particular course if you search
