    Hi, I'm studying History A-level and I didn't do too well in my AS exam. I did pretty well all year but completely flopped the final exam. I was upset the entire day after I found out but after speaking to my teacher, I realised that the grade doesn't count and if I work even harder this year, I can bring the grade up. I really don't enjoy history which probably didn't help when it came to revision last year. Although I worked really hard, I don't think it was my hardest since I wasn't very keen on the subject. I fully believe that I am capable finishing sixth form with a good grade if I do it right this time, but I don't know where to start. What are the best revision/study techniques for History? I tried using flashcards last year but it didn't work for me as there was so much content that I sort of gave up looking at them. Anything would be greatly appreciated. Sorry this was so long- winded.

    i think the BEST THING to do is to do exam questions and practise your essay structure and conclusion history is all about how u argue and conclude and word your essay and i think that you shouldn't be put down by this because it is all about how much effort you put in on this.also if you have lost interest do something that will put your interest back into it like i do history a level and i dint like it that much i was always bored so wat i would do is watch documentaries and i did the Tudors do i started watching the tv show the Tudors and i wouldn't really read books because i find these boring so i would like to watch something to help me
