Hi! I'm doing russia as well and what i'm doing is making essay plans for pretty much every essay i think could come up then memorising those. I know it seems like a bit of a stretch but it's helpful just having essays in your head so if the question you revised did come up you know exactly what to write. I go onto save my exams, look at past papers and pick questions from there. Since your mocks are pretty soon, i'd just focus on picking out specific detail for topics that could come up and work from there. Have you got any hints about what might come up or do you have to revise everything?

no hints at all other than it will be on chapters 1-8 of the textbook (so everything before power vacuum & struggle) - i've tried doing essay plans but there's very limited questions out there that could come up (i've only got about 4 or 5 and less in terms of the source questions) so i'm just really worried and i feel like nothing's sticking at all but its a bit too late to make notes or flashcards on the topics (my history exam is on the 16th)

When I revised, I'd talk it back to myself aloud. I'd even do it when I was jogging. It tended to help a lot. You could try talking it back and recording it on your phone. Then play it back to yourself. Also, if there was something wasn't "sticky" in that I couldn't keep it in my head, I'd write it out over and over and over until it stuck.
