Hello all! With exams this May, I was wondering if anyone has some good study tips and/or resources for History HL.
For reference, I am in History of the Americas. History is my passion, and I would love to get a 7! :) Only issue is my class has never studied historiography...
Thanks in advance.

I would focus a lot on finding historiography, without historiography you can’t score higher than a 5 on a paper. I would recommend finding +/- 4 historians for each focus of each paper (for example for paper 2, 4 historians on causes, 4 on operations and strategy and 4 on effects). Also to get into a 6/7 band for history you do not only have to mention the historians, but actually evaluate them, so looking at their origin and their potential bias and weighing perspectives out to form your own conclusion
