How to get better at history?
There was a test today I studied more than anyone for, and better than anyone. I watched a 99 minute long video the teacher posted and took notes, I re-read the textbook pages and redid lots of my notes. I went to tutorials and got extra review time. I took the test and I was finding it quite easy, I understood every question and felt confident in my answers There were 40 btw, and our test is graded 2 points each.
YET I GOT A 76. A 76 on the test. I studied, I understood everything, and I got a 76 on the damn test. Wtf is this? How?? How do I get better at AP world history without ruining my life and studying every 5 minutes? I don't freaking understand. Last semester I had an 88 and I was so close to an A. This semester I started off thinking I would get the A but now it's almost going to be impossible. AND IT'S JUST HISTORY, IT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO BE SO HARD!
The only thing I'm good at in WHAP is the quizzes and that's because I spend 5 hours studying for them and I still only get low A's. Wtf is wrong with me?
