History HL is just a grind rn and I need different ways to study than just reviewing the notes 500 times and doing a past paper, it’s so time consuming and exhausting. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks :)

I always try to make my notes in the manner in which it can be asked on the exam: columns for compare and contrast two leaders (Cold War) for example. I also really like using whiteboards. I would just try and write out my main points/ arguments that I would use in an exam on a subbulletpoint of the syllabus and then redo it a later day as so to have them concise and stuck in my head. It has been going really well so far and I’m currently predicted a 7 in History HL. Hope these tips work!

It will still be time consuming, but overall this method has really helped me. Make sure you have a standpoint on each topic and you know what you will be arguing in your exam as so to build your revision around that and so you can use statistics and facts that support your argument or counterclaims
