How do I best revise history? I’m studying the Cold War, Elizabeth, Germany and Medicine. Medicine is easy enough, but how do I memorise all the content for Cold War? There’s tonnes. 😬

** I mostly work with revision cards and posters, I’ve made all of these and now just need to learn the information

Hey! I’m doing almost exactly the same, except I’m doing America instead of Germany.... you on the exam board WJEC? I find cue cards with the key facts stuck around the house helps, or coloured mind maps with images so you can connect certain facts with simpler things to remember. I agree, the Cold War stuff is really hard to remember! Wish you all the best of luck!

I’m actually on edexcel,, don’t like this exam board because they phrase questions very weirdly, same for geography. I think I’m going to make a long list of questions and just keep going through them, but glad to know I’m not the only one struggling!!

Mindmaps and flash cards helped me alot i have recently sat my history mocks another thing that helps is making a timeline with key infomation of important dates its good to know some factual background about these dates so that in a exam if they ask you what happaned after a certain date you will know what to write another thing that helped a lot was past papers as they help you to structure your anwser in a way so that you get all marks. hope this helps and goood luck!
