I write a short summary of everything in bullet points, that is really helpful when revising but the best way is to make flashcards and mindmaps

Thank you -- do you think detailed notes may be useful as well?

I actually made them as well and tbh I barely looked at them but my flashcards and mindmaps are very detailed though and I pretty much memorized them. Also what textbook do you have?

I'm doing history iGCSE too! I think looking at the spec helps because it tells you exactly what things you need to know the causes/effects on. I made flashcards with basic notes and facts for each event so I could use them for the 8-marker question and also apply them to the 16-marker. If you're really struggling and need some help, you might want to buy the Mr Budd History revision packs - they include loads of summary information and facts for each topic.

What topics are you doing? I've got Nazi Germany, Cold War, and the USA (they cut China because of covid).

Great -- thanks!!

I have the Edexcel International GCSE (9-1) History Student Book for a development of a dictatorship, Germany; the cold war; USA; and medicine I'll probs get next year as I'm in Y10!

This is the link to one of them: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Edexcel-Int...c=1&th=1&psc=1

Thanks so much; I'll definitely keep this in mind!!

Yes, I'm doing the same but instead of China, I'm doing medicine!

Im doing the exact same topic haha, I personally like to make concise and factual notes on a word or google doc as it doesn’t strain my hands as much (due to the massive content that History has) and I can easily come back and 1. Look stuff up quickly 2. Edit my notes to make them better. However the way you revise is 100% up to you as I hate Flashcards as they just don’t work.
