Make a good set of notes

Then reduce them to a revision set.

Make timelines to show in what order events happened.

Make mindmaps to show how events and actions relate to each other.

Start with exam papers.

1. Exam paper + books available., untimed.
2. Exam paper + books available, but timed.
3. Exam paper no books, untimed.
4. exam paper+ no books + timed.

Use the mark schemes to id where you gained and more importantly lost marks.
Try the question again and see if you can remember what you missed.

Do the same again in a few months or when revising.
Do fresh questions as above as well.

Also watch youtube vids, read stuff on the net from decent sites and work on the above to improve.
10 min essay plans is also a good exercise.

Practice is key.

I’d contradict the previous reply
-use your books for planning questions only (not completing) (untimed)
-Then plan with book timed so 5 minutes (plan only)
-Then plan with book timed with 10 minutes inc writing
Then do this as quick as possible once you’re completing targets
•finish the question (first stage)
•plan within timed limit
•complete within timed limit

I say plan with books/ notes on the topic because you learn and you improve your skills. I don’t see the point in removing sources of knowledge before you’re comfortable with it yourself

make sure you get someone to mark them
