I am doing my A-Levels this year and I don't know how to revise. My predicted grades were C's and I would like to get B's or even A's. I can't seem to concentrate for longer periods of time and I don't know how to revise effectively. Does anyone have any tips or advice? Thanks.

How do you normally revise for history? What are your marks for the source question and essay questions?

Sorry for the late reply. I am doing Russia and Modern Britain (AQA) in History. For source or extract questions I usually get 12-16 marks, in essays 12-15 marks. I try making notes but anything else I do doesn't really stick.

So is it the content that's holding you back or the technique? I assume you have a general knowledge but not confident in it?

I think it's the technique. My teacher says that I need to be more analytical and less narrative, but I have no idea how to do that. I also have a hard time knowing what information to put in the essays.
