Hello everybody. Honestly, I loved history back when i was in school. The first thing You should do in order to excel in Sejarah is to love it or at least, respect it. Change the mindset that it is a boring subject. Believe me, when you are in university in a few years to come, you will come across MANY subjects that are more boring and sometimes nonsense. So, change the mindset. Sit down. Relax. Open the text book. Read slowly and carefully. Also, make sure you have a piece of paper and a pen/pencil with you. Read the subtopic once to get the brief idea. Then, read again and list down the main points. There you go. 1 subtopic is already digested. Then, go through the notes before the exam and do the past year questions. Do it. Apart from that, You might also want to list down all the questions (in the past year question papers) and get the answer scheme. Read the question together with the answer scheme. Understand it. Remember it.
1 thing about Sejarah is that you must learn it from the beginning. Last-minute study is not very effective in most cases. Being the top student in Sejarah from Form 1 to Form 5, I think respecting the subject really helps. And, for those who think that Sejarah is a nightmare for students and it ends after SPM, you are wrong. You will have many subjects in the university where you have to read a lot, and synthesize it. Sejarah is just the beginning.I am talking about engineering here. I am taking Mechanical Engineering at UTP and there are subjects where you have to read a lot. It is not only about calculation. To be good at something, you must read a lot. Comprehend. No shortcut in lives. This is from my personal experience. Hope this helps
