Can someone please give me any ideas about remembering a large amount of information?!

I have my exams in June for the second part of my GCSE History Course, and I am currently trying to learn/ memorise/ revise the Medicine and Treatment topic and the Surgery topic. If anyone could give me any ideas of how to remember such a large amount of information I would be very grateful!

Hi!
I'm doing History as well, but we're doing Cold War, the Divided Union & USA 1919-1941.
From my POV i think that you should make revision notes, or use revision notes if you have any, and try to memorise it because from past papers GCSE history  is all about the context, and remembering dates. So it isn't much about remembering it and then trying to apply it on everyday situations or anything.
Also, i think Revision Cards are very handy, you can use them for it to be a brief overview of a specific event(s)
But, if you're like a learner who has to write it down, and revises well like that, its good if you answer past exam questions. I mean, they all sound like typical revision techniques but they really help!
Hope i helped! (:

Thank you very much!

I have started making notes summarising the main events now so thank you very much! I have also sent my Mum on a mission to find me some card to make some revision cards :)
