    Yh I’m also aiming for an 8 currently at a good 7 . I do the same thing I have a copy of each textbook and make Mindmaps, create flash cards and then condense my notes. I also find reading beyond the textbook helpful just to gain some background knowledge which is good for the higher marked questions, be that by watching yt videos or short documentaries on the topic . As there isn’t a lot of questions out there for the new spec I create my own questions .

    I'm aiming for an 8 and so far am stable. I suggest printing out the specification from the AQA website and just note & flashcard making for each of the subtopics from the aqa approved gcse history books from class. my teacher posts them on dynamic learning for me to note & flashcard make from them in my free time as an extra thing I asked from her. ask your teacher to do that if you want

    Oof, i'm doing the same I think. So much content, statistics and groups to learn about especially for Nazi Germany and Conflict in Asia. I haven't been doing as well as I had thought though. Super hard, especially question 4 where you have to describe something with no provenance or something like that ;//

    Damn, congrats on the 9! How many marks did you get (or just the percentage)?
    I only know my grade at the moment, I'll find out my mark etc after February half term.

    I'm doing WW1, USA 1920-1973, Power and the People and Norman England. I got a 5 in my mocks but I didnt fully commit myself to revising and I know i can get much better. I struggle with answering exam questions the most, I cant seem to get the right content in there.
    you're NOT alone, hi-five man! (lol idek) I actually struggle with exam questions so much. Like, I know the content but how do I put the contents in the flipping question? You know what I is saying?

    Same, even though we're learning about the time when Hitler was having a rave while making innocent people suffer. I guess it's just easier to remember.

    does anyone have any advice on how to answer the qeustions? I had a mock a few weeks ago where i found the questions before hand and learnt the answers, and i still got a grade 3! I take stuff from a cgp book for instance the question was "what caused the weimar republic downfall, economic or poolitical reason" I said that the french invaded the Ruhr which caused fear amongst the people and turned people against the weimar republic, what do i need to add to my points to actually get the marks I feel like im just reciting facts out of a cgp book which i assume wont get me far, thanks
