    Hi I love History but I feel like being able to study topics in detail often takes me hours and hours more than it should and I feel that flashcards are too brief and dull
    Any suggestions in how to revise History would be much appreciated!

    I revise history by taking bullet point notes, and then going back through my notes and colour coding key concepts, dates, and figures/groups. I also make timelines just so I can get everything in my head chronologically and remember dates because I'm really bad at them. If there are major concepts, I'll make short revision sheets recording everything I need to know about that theme. Another thing that helps is creating detailed essay plans for past questions. I also know people who, if they're comparing events or they have a lot of similar events, they create a table with all the key things about the events (dates, figures, causes, consequences, etc) so they can order it properly in their head.
