Tips

Key people – make a notes on what each individual from each paper did – when they did it, and their impact.  Aim for three facts about each person.

Timelines – create a timeline for each of the papers that you are sitting, and identify when key events of key changes happened.  This is a visual way for you to remember

Have an opinion! History is always about reaching a judgement, so have discussions with you family/ friends.  It doesn’t need to be about History to start with – make sure that you have reasons for an opinion, and then have a debate.  Once you can do this, the 16 mark questions will be easy!

Tips

  • Break each unit down into the individual topics studied and split your revision time accordingly.
  • Use flash cards for key words and teachings. If you don’t know key words or key religious beliefs you can’t answer the questions. Keep testing yourself on them regularly.
  • Spider grams are a great way to write out key beliefs in RE. Students need to remember what the key teachings are and how Christians/Muslims use them to help them make decisions in life today.
  • “chunking” Students read a section or topic. They then minimize the information into a series of key words to make it easier to remember. (This is chunking information down.) Students then come back to the work and chunk it back up by recalling and explaining the topic in detail using the key words to help them.
