I did GCSE History and got an 8 just for reference. The way i revised was initially going through exam technique with teachers, so I knew how to structure my answers and how long to spend on every question in the exam.
In terms of content revision I’d say buy a CGP book for the courses you’re doing as they have all the necessary info that will give you good context marks. Read through the book so you know the content inside out (something I didn’t do). Also practice exam papers. Also on a more basic note, try to think about how things link together.
I actually learnt best by watching videos on a website called GCSE pod (which my school had access to) and it had small 5-10 minute videos on every aspect of the course for History.
Sorry I didn’t do drama so I’m not much help there
How I revised for the exams:
1. I made flashcards for key dates, names and facts in each topic.
2. I did lots of past paper questions and checked them with my teacher to get feedback on my exam technique.
3. I watched summary videos of the topics closer to my exams for a general overview.
4. I engaged with the topics by learning more about them outside of the textbooks which made them more fun and helped everything else make more sense through context.
I mainly used my class book and online resources to create the flashcards.
Something that made it all easier to understand was connecting all the dates together, not just seeing them individually. Seeing the logical flow of events within the topic made it easier to grasp.
Hope this helps. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.
