Just go on youtube and any videos over 45mins is worth a look.
Docs are a great way to revise.
Alsdo lots of films- Elizabeth as well as the Tudors, Man for all seasons and Wolf Hall.

Yeah true, I will look at getting some books or even better if I can find some pdf versions online for the Tudors, since for Cold War my teacher gave me some materials already.

Sure of course, likewise please do the same. I have studied Cold War at GCSE so I know the overall time period but the Tudor period is very new so I’m just a bit anxious.

Do you have any advice in terms of revising for History? Any revision method? For GCSEs I mainly just used the resources my teacher gave and I always managed to get a 9 in my paper. But I feel like for A Levels, I would have to work harder.

It depends on what kind of learner you are. Tbh I would stick with your revision method if it works for you. The difficult part is your exam technique so I suggest trying to focus on boosting that and learning the information so it flows well. It's hard to get a B/A* and GCSE exam techniques + good amount of info for Tudor will probably give you a decent C. You do have to work harder for A levels. I definitely using every resource you can grab on and historian books are a godsend. Textbooks will give you the key information but historian books + independent learning will give you the detail that will boost your grade up

Lucy Worsley did a 3 episode documentary called Six Wives and is quite an interesting watch and I found that it was helpful as sometimes it can be hard to watch a history documentary due to the monotony of the presenter, however Worsley kept me engrossed. You can find it online by simply typing Lucy Worsley Six Wives and it will appear on daily motion. On Channel 4 they also currently have David Starkey's documentary, the Six Wive of Henry VIII.
