Are you doing GCSE History or A Level History? If the latter, you should get set private study/homework to read certain pages and make notes. I usually cut out the bites that are unnecessary or just seems like pure waffle and write the important points down. We mostly spend our lessons consolidating our knowledge based on the notes we take and further extend our knowledge. For GCSE History, I would try to summarise the information you've been given and advice you to only take the most important points down. Hope that helps.

What I’ve done now and I wish I done sooner was PowerPoints- hear me out! I’m quite compétant on computers and I enjoy them, so PowerPoint, after each lesson and I’ve just been catching up on my previous history modules (Elizabeth and Nazi Germany), I write the KEY points on the slide, do that until I’ve finished the module and when I need to revise, I print them out- double sided 2 p/page and then I have all my book in 15 pages and I can then go on to make mindmaps etc.

This has really helped me so far with history especially with my **** teaching last year🙄!

Most of the information you have is useless. Buy a CGP textbook and it’ll have all you need for an easy A*. It’s what I used for all my GCSE’s (10A*, 3A)
I am getting all of my revision guides given to me on friday as I ordered them through school so i WILL DEFINATELY try that
