Oh i'm doing OCR. i would have much rather do what you do and that period

What i do is write them on some white paper thats stuck on coloured paper and read them
You could also try writing practise essay paragraphs, intors & conclusions so you can see what topic they fit in & how you could link it
Mainly i would say read read read and try recall them withouth looking a them:)
Good luck

record yourself saying some quotes on ur ipod/ phone and listen to it everyday! Also, i dont know if this works, but its been scientifically tested to help with memory. Spray some spray (that you never use for anything else, just for this) whilst revising and then before your exam spray that spray on you and your brain will link that smell to previous revision and you will start to remember it! I've been trying it today, but i dont know if it works yet!! Lol, good luck!

thats really clever, i may have a go with that :P

Lol, yeah I am too, i read it somewhere online and then read in my biology book that you remember better if you link things with smell and taste and colours. It sounds too good to be true but I am all for revising better and remembering things better, so I might as well give it ago!! Make sure to let me know if it works!!! lol :) x

I know right, were so lucky !! It's so frustrating cause all this hardwork we are doing now might go to waste cause uni is soo expensive! I mean in like the first years of work we will be in debt of like a lot of money cause of uni fees! ;/ Urgghh!

Posted: 14-05-11 14:01 by Alex

No, year 10, so its a bit early to start thinking of Uni, but yer.... are you in yr 11?

Posted: 14-05-11 14:06 by Sara

we started in year 10 and did them in 11, in year 9 we had to do sats which was really stupid so we did work towards them
What history are you doing for GCSE btw?

Posted: 14-05-11 14:15 by Alex

woah, we did our sats in year 6!!! anyway, urm medicine and surgery

Posted: 14-05-11 14:17 by Sara

i did year 3, 6 and 9 sats. Iwas the last year to do year 9 sats before they were scrapped,
Just medicine & surgery? Are you continuing your GCSE history onto next year? i did that but i also did American West

Posted: 14-05-11 14:19 by Alex

yes, were continuing gcse history in year 11 and were gonna do germany and the war i think. and were just doing medicine and surgery, but its split into 2 exams - one exam for medicine and one for surgery so its like 2 modules i think

Posted: 14-05-11 14:21 by Sara

oh, i don't know if you are doing the same board as i did but that's totally different to what i did :P

Posted: 14-05-11 14:27 by Alex

Posted: 14-05-11 14:27 by Sara

I tried the smell thing, i'm not sure how effective it was but i certinally did remember a few things i had been revising whilst i could smell the spray that i also could smellin the exam :)
