I have a fairly good idea on how to revise for other subjects, but how would you even start revising for history?

I guess I am kind of intimidated by the fact that there is just so much to revise, so I don't know how to start revising for it.

Every little tip would help.
Thanks!

Hi! When I was doing my GCSEs I found it helpful to put post-it notes of all relevant dates and key events all around my house - in the bathroom, on the fridge, on the mirrors etc haha. My bedroom was littered with them and I was shocked by how much it went in! You could also make timelines, mind maps, flow charts, which helps to break it down rather than just writing down huge walls of text which you won't remember. I also found flashcards and Quizlet really helpful.

Good luck!

Thank you so much, I think the reason why i was getting low grades in history was because i wrote huge walls of text like you said...
When creating a mind map/timeline, how much detail did you put into it?
Was it just key dates and few key words or detailed sentences?

I'd write about a sentence on the timeline, and then go into more detail in any notes I'd make. I put my mindmaps up on my walls as well so I made sure they weren't too detailed, as I liked to read them when I was just passing by, and if there are paragraphs and paragraphs of text I wouldn't read it or it wouldn't go in.

But it's whatever works for you, really! More detailed mindmaps and timelines might be helpful for you. If you decide to do more simple ones, make sure you have detailed notes as well.
