Does anyone have any tips on how to really succeed in Politics (A*/A), the textbook is extremely hefty, so how should I condense my notes. That’s my main issue, how to take notes, please help!

Hi, which exam board / modules are you taking?

I did my politics a-level earlier this year and learned all the content through anki (flash card program) and got an A. If you want I can give send you the entire deck ~400 flash cards which covers essentially the full course. If you haven’t heard of anki I would say it’s 100% the best way to learn any sort of content and without it I definitely wouldn’t of got the grades I did.

Hey, and thanks for responding! I’m with Edexcel and my options are Nationalism and American Politics. So, what is Anki, I’ve never heard of it?

I watched this video by a Cambridge Medic:

After that I used Anki everyday, basically you input your flash cards, you then attempt to answer them, if you do well you press the ‘good’ button and the algo shows you that card less, if you press the ‘hard’ button then the algorithm will show you that card more until you know it. It’s basically flash cards on steroids and digitalised.
