Hey!

I am a year 13 student studying AQA History and I was wondering what do you guys use to study history? I am doing course on the Industrial Revolution in Britain as well as the USSR after Stalin and it's collapse.

Are there any resources you would recommend for this course in particular or history revision in general?

Many thanks!

I'm doing A level as well, and I mainly use a lot of flashcards. To start with I tried to use mind maps but those didn't work for me. Making flashcards lets me test myself and add any information that I like as we go along.

Hi, for my GCSEs I put post-its all around my house (bathroom, mirrors, fridge, all over my bedroom) with significant dates and events. It really really helped me to familiarise myself with the subject and I found it to be super effective! I'm starting to put them up now for my mocks

I also find timelines helpful and a majority of my revision is done by just typing out notes, but I know that's not that helpful for a lot of people

Thank you guys for your responses! Personally, I have been doing both timelines and flashcards. Are you doing thematic flashcards or writing a question and answering in bullet points on the flashcard?

Doing AQA A_Level History too but different topics. Like everyone else mentioned, mindmaps are really helpful yeah but for me personally I prefer timelines and bullet-pointed notes about all the specific areas of focus. (For example, I'm doing the Tudors, so bullet-pointed notes on Henry VIII's foreign policy, then on Henry VIII's government and governing style etc)

Also planning essays is a good revision source too because you'll be practicing exam technique and recalling whatever you've previously learned too

essay plans are a really good way to revise
