Hi all, I have (college) exams coming up in a few months which determine by predicted grades for Unis, and as I will probably wind up studying History I figure it's a good idea to get some solid grades. I think, as I'll probably pursue History further, I'd like to get at least an A. Ideally an A*. Any revision tips/ideas? Any particularly good sources of information (revision guides, books, youtube channels etc....). Any essay tips? Thanks.

Hi :hello:

I've put together revision techniques that I used as a student to get a First Class undergraduate degree.

Study SMART Not Long: It much easier to implement a regular and successful study schedule if you are studying SMART.
o Set yourself goals.
o Make study techniques that promote greater results.
o Ask for help.
o Reward yourself for progress.
o Take a Break.


S: Set yourself goals for study. For example, make up an exam/essay question and work towards answering it.
M: Remember VARK. Are you a Visual learner, Audio learner, Reading learner or Kinetic learner. Use study techniques that will promote the best learning for yourself.
A: If you are struggling with anything ask your teacher for help. Their job is to help you with your studies. Alternatively, use study guides or the internet to help breakdown tough subjects.
R: When you hit your goals, complete work and meet important deadlines reward yourself with treats. For example, make watching an episode of your favourite show your reward for completing tasks.
T: When you’ve finished studying take breaks. Go for a walk, hang with friends or get a cup of tea and watch TV. It’s important not to overdo revising.


Best of luck with your exams!
