What are your favourite history and law revision methods?

So like, I feel like I am revising all the time and working quite hard and yet my history exam results feel like they never reflect it and I feel real sillypants, I was at a loss and was wondering what I was doing wrong because you're always told 'Study hard and you'll win'. I am not winning I need advice, I have tried flash cards and stuff but I make them myself and they never feel comprehensive enough.

Any methods to make revision more effective / any neat methods please throw em my way, I am working at an A*,A*,D (history is the D) and it is a lil bit desperate.

Different things I do/tried:
- made flashcards with the tinest bits of info on ever
- BLURTING - this has saved me with history trust me its honestly what helps me with my grades in history
- Youtube videos (if your doing aqa theres some really useful ones on youtube)
- essay plans (i do aqa so might not apply but for paper 1 ive done an essay play per each inquiry question since the questions are always some variation of that)
- practice exam structure - will save you
hope this is helpful

I do history(edexcel) and law(aqa) too!
Tbh law is the easiest to learn in my opinion
i use flash cards and practice essays
Blurting is good but it takes a long time

these are my law flash cards i use brainscape https://www.brainscape.com/p/4OF44-LH-CI9U1
For history i do russia and china
China - https://www.brainscape.com/p/4OF44-LH-CJESE

I do History (OCR B) GCSE and something that works for me is drawing pictures. So I reminded myself of the drawing and the fact comes along
