Flash cards. With the information you have, read through it a couple of times, and the stuff that you're still not sure of --> onto a flash card it goes. :)

I find it really helps writing things out big and colourfully to stick on the walls. Keep it short and simple and when you're bored of revising, staring at the walls, the information goes in :)

The poster idea really works, I cover my wall with things I think are relevant to my subjects, even like notes from class and look at them all the time like even when i'm laid in bed haha:) also I just started doing those flash card things, if you do it with a friend its more of a test as you haven't thought of the question and answer yourself so you have to think about it more

hope this helps x

If you learn well verbally, what works for me is teaching my self out loud. it may sound a bit weird and crazy but asking many people what works for them is this. after teaching yourself test your self by taking quizzes. This will help

i use a lot of different methods to revise. Flashcards work well for subjects for like science or geography, while for religion i find A3 pages on walls a good idea. If there are a lot of facts to recall for a test, i like creating voice memos on my ipod and then transferring this to a playlist, and just let it play until i can memorise most of the facts.

Good luck with your studies!

for me, revising with my friends really helps. when im on my own i just get bored and distracted whereas when im with other people, i feel like i cant cause them to fail by also distractring them so I acutually work. Also if you dont understand something, rather than panicing on your own and deciding to miss it out, you can simply ask the people with you :)

Whatever you decide to do, good luck and im sure you will be fine :)

i ithink that making flashcards with all your notes on is very helpful and also making all your notess very colourful will also make you remember all the information that you have put down

well I don't know if this just helps me, but i listen to music in the background because for some strange reason it helps me concentrate! give it a go! make sure its not to loud,  it will help u relax! sometimes i listen to fast stuff other times i maybe listening to calm stuff! also my dad helped me start revising!:

  • he made me use flash cards
  • told me to do a little at a time for each subject so it goes in
  • use your work to help you
  • dont guess, if you dont know look it up
  • dont stress 
  • also get together with your friends and do it together, it REALLY does help!!!!

at the end of the day you can only do your best and that is all that matters!

I also think the poster thing is really good. If you don't like to process info in large chunks use sticky notes and just post them on your walls instead. You can even attach things to your celing and read them as you're going to sleep, as I learn better at night, this helps me a lot.
