I start my Alevels tomorrow and I am taking History, Politics, Maths and Classical Civilisation. At GCSE I achieved 9's in all of these but never really developed a structured revision technique I just switched between loads. I want to get good grades in my Alevels too so I was wondering does anyone have any suggestions on how to revise for my four subjects (with intention of dropping one). Thank you for the help!!!

Out of these what will be most useful for each one:
Concise Notes
Flashcards
Mindmaps
Essay Plans
Timelines
Practice Papers

For History, all of the above.

For Politics, I would say Essay Plans, Concise Notes, Flashcards and Practice Papers.

(I'll be mentioning past papers for every single subject)

Maths, without a doubt, past papers. Including flashcards.

Classical Civilisation is very much like History, so again, all of the above.

A technique I highly recommend is creating your own past papers. Say for example you're studying the crusades, read the topic, fully understand it and then create questions on it and complete those questions until you receive full marks.

For questions that are very essay based, you can give them to your teachers and they can mark it for you.
