My exam board is AQA. I am studying the American Revolution and the Stuarts. I find it really hard to revise the content. Any suggestions of ways to revise history? Any techniques that really work for you?

Practice essays.
Also, revision cards with key dates / events and brief information. Making yourself recall information is the best way to learn.

For GCSE I did no revision except attend revision class in which I wrote down everything relevant that the teacher said.

For AS Level I made an interactive list of events and the year their occurred in, in chronological order and learned as many as I could.

Other than that, essay practice.

Completely honestly, I can read a history book and remember the basic details because I see it like a storybook. However, with key dates and stuff I make revision cards, timelines and posters.
Have you got history textbooks? If so, just read them and don't think of it as studying (that kills the vibe), just think of it as reading a mystery novel, or thriller, or whatever genre the time period matches.
Lucky you, you're only doing two topics . I'm doing Elizabethan England, the Cold War, Germany before and after WW2 and Medicine through time
Best of luck!
