The only topic I did at GCSE from your list is Nazi Germany and I managed to get 52/52 on the exam! so I hope my tips will be helpful for you too. I would recommend asking your teachers for model answers as that way you will get a good idea of what the structure they want is like. Also, I found videos really helpful to consolidate knowledge/dates as little detailed facts are what help you stand out from others!

52/52, i can only dream of achieving such a mark! Edexcel put out a few model answers, is it worth revising and memorising them?

trust me getting those marks is achievable, If I could do it so can you! As long as you can find a good way to revise and what to revise you don't have to do irrational hours. I think memorise them as they will help you get the structure as a natural thing but also, I think just listening in class is so vital. I listened in most of my classes and that reduced the amount of time I spent revising extremely! It made revising history more of a consolidation rather than teaching myself everything!

I'll be sure to do so, as well as listening in class more intently! Thanks!

I am only doing Nazi and Weimar Germany out of those. The Revision Guy-de on youtube does excellent recap videos for this and other bits, would highly recommend. Also mind mapping or making lists of the successes/failures/techniques of different groups and policies eg the police state, propaganda or women and children. Ooh it’s also quite useful to learn some statistics such as 70% of household having radios or 60,000 loudspeaker poles being erected in public squares around Germany.
Are you doing you gcses this year? X

The only one I do there is medicine through time. I'm in year 11 now and I get a variety of marks! From grade 7-9! A key thing is to just know the key things. Heres the specification, pages 15-17, trust me on this! Life saver!
