Hey,
Just wondered if anyone had any A* revision tips please? I've been planning both 45 and 15 markers (using examiner's reports + mark schemes when necessary), in addition to making notes, but I feel like I'm forgetting everything... Maybe it's just classic exam nerves lol but any further suggestions would be appreciated. I'm doing U3 and U4 (ideologies).
Thank youuu x

I'm doing governing the USA and ideologies (idk what numbers they are) and I've made so many mindmaps. I find that splitting everything into topics works, and then adding quotes you can use (this particularly helps me with ideologies, where I'm doing liberalism, socialism, conservatism, and anarchy. I find physically seeing where I can put in quotes helps)

Thank you!

By topic splitting do you mean creating a mind-map on a topic (e.g. liberalism) then splitting it into sub-topics (e.g. view on human nature/democracy etc.), then adding quotes?

exactly that yes, then you can add the quotes from the various people to see where you can fit them in when you write essays
