Usually in geography, you have so much to cover under each topic that it may seem like a laborious task. Good news is that you DON'T have to study everything under each topic. Hand-pick a few important points and highlight them. This will help you have pointers in mind regarding a given topic and you will also have enough content to write for each question.
As for history, the points you need to write will be more evident than in geography. So have a standard template for the important things to note down in an answer and learn them accordingly. Since history is full of facts, it is important to by heart them, but you could avoid rote learning and balance the memorising part with the interesting incidents from the lessons.
Note down the list of events and their dates. Say, there are 30 of them in total, note down the first letter of the first sentence under each event. Put together they could give you a word. Use it as an acronym to remember the events. You could also rearrange them in order of the years so that you will remember the dates in coherence.
One challenge that students have with maps are remembering the places. You could have fun with learning by playing Joining the Dots. Connect all the places in a map to form a shape. So now you will see a pattern and know the spots that need to be marked. Knowing which city belongs to which state will make it easier to mark the places in the spots where the pattern isdrawn.
Some stories are interesting while some others could be boring. So how could you make a boring story interesting? By connecting it with real life! If you are studying about a war that does not interest you, no worries, think of your enemies and how you want them to be attacked. Now, you will feel better reading the history of the war. Connect incidents to real life situations and relate them. It helps you retain the incident in your memory.
