I tend to follow these steps when revising, it really helps:

1.Go through the syllabus or each topics and make all the notes you need to know but in bullet points or small chunks as its easier to learn

2.Make flashcards with questions and answers on different sides that cover all the information put into your notes.

3.Go through your flashcards and notes and end your revision with a quick mindmap, flowchart or poster, which ever you prefer really.

4.You should be more prepared and confident by now, if not just practice with a partner and go through your flashcards or revise in groups with your friends, i.e. do quizzes and test each other. You can all help eachother with different things you don't understand.

5.Now this tip works best for me. Whilst revising, apply a certain perfume. Only have the perfume on the clothes that your revising in and change afterwards. (it may seem like effort but its worth it!). Before the exam, spray the same perfume and that same smell, jogs your memory and reminds of your revision sessions. It works for me, and has generally proven to do so!

Good Luck!

 If this was facebook, I would 'like' the above comment. Especially the last point. Good tips :)

The perfume idea sounds excellent, I'll have to try it thanks!

One way I find really effective is to 'teach your teddies'. I pretend my teddies are a class and I must clearly teach them the material I need to learn. It tests out whether you know your stuff, when teaching you need to explain things clearly in your own words so it helps to organise what you know and think about it.

Hy Guys XD

i find the best way to revise, is to put all the summarized info.

on half a piece of A4 paper, and flood it with colour and doodles

which help me remember when revising.

Then the best time for me to revise that is early in the morning

or late at night, so before i go to sleep i always go over my notes.

However for last minute revision, as Emma and Emily suggested, you should go

for past papers. 

I answer the questions and check them against the marking scheme whcih really helps

to know what the examiners are looking at.

All past papers are found in this website:

Good Luck

yeah Iram,

that is a better way of revising. i use that method with history

(its practically like a story)  except i teach it to my younger

brothers, who actually help by asking questions.

My own live experiments. hehehe

You could also apply the idea of using brightly coloured highlighters to make words really stand out. I'm really addicted to using my blue highlighter at school since I found it a few days ago. I think revision cards are also a very good idea too.

You could also condense down lots of information by putting it in note form. Mind maps are very effective too.

I for science condence notes from the syllabus and from my revison guide aswell as my books onto cue cards, i record that and then I listen to that instead of listening to music. Its really sad but you have to learn it and its soo stressfull :O :O

wahts the best way of revising i just can't ! ill rrevise for 5 minutes then go eat or something! so stressfull!

I find it best to go through the revision guide and condense the main points in bullet points on lined paper. Then I go through the notes I made and once again condense them, leaving out the parts I'm confident with and repeating this until I'm sure of the whole subject.

Kinda time consuming but it works :D

I think that this method only works for some people because it takes a while and I like to spend an hour or 2 without a break doing it and this is fine for me as I get absorbed in what I'm doing and find it interesting so I guess if you don't work like that then this might not work so well :)

OOh and another thing, my friend was helping me with Physics and there was a difficult formula so he made me say it out loud overt 10 times and that really helped because it implants it into your memory because I felt silly. I think if you did this but standing on one leg or while doing something odd it might help you to make links in your mind and then remember it in the exam :D

Past papers from the Edexel and AQA website, just write down your answer and the check them using the mark scheme! easy!

Also another good way of revising is to have a folder and just load it up with revision material then get someone to pick a random page and you have to describe to them about it all in 10mins. makes you think!

Heyy (:

I had to do a whole presentation about revision methods in front of pupils and parents at my school; I had to discuss a diverse range of revision techniques for auditory, kinaesthetic and visual learners.

So if any of you need any advice, just let me know! I’d be happy to help!

I know a girl who revised a different subject every day and when she revised, she wore a different perfume each day. When it came to the exam day she woud wear the same perfume that she wore to revise that subject and it helped her remember what she had revised.

Go to bed early, wake up an hour before you usually would do, sit with your feet in abowl of hot water, have a cup of coffee and a few biscuits. Now read over your main notes but be careful you don't over do it as you will get too stressed out and may go blank in the exam. Good Luck!
