Hey there!

So it’s almost GCSE’s and I have yet to revise history. Yep, I know leaving the biggest subject to such a late date. I’m an idiot, right? But I guess what they say is to move on and not look at the past but the future, right? Anyways, I’m really stuck on how to revise History. History has been a subject for me that....hasn’t really been the most interesting/fun subject i guess you could say. For science the way I revise is simply watching Freesciencelessons and making flash cards on them and then after I’ve covered everything of the day I will look back and memories them and do past papers once I have finished either paper 1 or paper 2. So was just wondering on how to revise History? Same thing I do to science - If so what do I watch instead of Freesciencelessons. Flash cards seem to work best for me.

Anyways, Now that’s that is done. I’m very stressed. I don’t know but i almost start to feel depressed. I woke up and I didn’t want to get out of bed (Woke up at 9 and got out of bed at 3PM). Was just laying on my bed. I just keeping thinking over and over to my head that it’s too late. I have left the revision too late and I won’t get A’s and B’s (Which is what I want at the end). Honestly I feel like starting a new day tomorrow. Giving all my electronics to my mother and just revising all day. Of course taking breaks but it’s just so much stress onto me and I really don’t know what to do. It’s just the constant thought of GCSE’s coming up soon.

I don't know if this helps but my teacher has made revision card layouts in which layout how to basically answer the questions on the history paper and for some topics, has found that there are only a few questions they can ask. I would therefore suggest just rote learning how to answer the questions, try doing practise questions and I know it's easy to say but hard to do but try not to stress. We are all feeling the pressure and I'm here through pm or whatever if u need any more help. Hope this helped tho 😊

I think the way you revise for Science is really good and should work for History too.
For videos, you can try gcsepod, they have all subjects including history.
Also Seneca Learning has very helpful revision and it's free

Thank you both of you for such kind responses. I greatly do appreciate it and will try and stay concentrated and not stress as much as I do. Hopefully I don’t stress too much for the exams and stay relaxed.
