For starters - revision isn't just about reading things - constanlty test yourself and others and try explaining things to others as well. Try making revision quizzes for someone (and they do the same) and then you swap and see how many answers you get right - that kind of stuff... Hope this helps

I use cue cards, they're fun to make, quick to run through and help you remember things really easily! :) any other creative ways are also really good! things then stick in your mind better than when you're just reading a revision guide! :)

All i can say is that do not do passive revision; it DOES NOT help therefore meaning you are wasting time. I'am currently in year 10 and am revising 7 different sujects in a week =0 highlighting revision books and answering question which refer back to what you revise helps (GCP Books) or, on the other hand past papers which are relative towards what your exam is helpful; go look on their website and take a look at the mark schemes in order to get that A*

PS: IT HELPS

  1. Record yourslef saying revision notes on something and then listen to them whenever - on the bus/ car/ room etc
  2. Make little booklets of notes for each subject - this will help as writing things down helps and then you can also re read these notes
  3. Make notes for every subject and every revision guide - I had a revision guide which I had to read 40 pages from, I made notes and narrowed it down to only 15!!
  4. Make a list of definitions for each subject so you can read these before you start revising a subject to get you adapted to these definitions and using them
  5. Buy a folder for each subject - its vital for you to be organised - its hard to deal with exams, let alone searching for previous notes/ books which are all mixed up with other notes/ books. Once your organised, you wont feel as stressed. I had my books and notes all across my bedroom floor until I went to Ikea and bought a cheap bookcase, I dont know what I'd do without it !!!
  6. Talk to your teachers about how you can be revising - I do this before every half term to make sure I know exactly what I could be doing - after all, they know more about how to get good grades and revision then me !
  7. And make use of ALL your time - you cant just expect to get good grades if you only revised once in a day because of the excuse that you need some ''time off'' or you need ''freedom''!!!
  8. Also, do some past papers - this should show weaknesses/ strong points in your subjects and then you can do some targeted revision on your weak points...
  9. And take scheduled breaks. I revise for 3 hours then take an hour break
  10. Also do some exercise, its good for the mind and body
  11. And finally just relax as after all, if you've revised well and done good in past papers then you'll do fine in the exam!
  12. And good luck :)

follow this link: http://www.rsc-ne-scotland.ac.uk/eduapps/download.php and dowload the 'mystudybar' app. You can create quick and easy floating sticky notes and mind maps and other revision tools. It really helps. Whatever info i need for an exam i now turn it into a virtual sticky note. Hopes this helps, it works for me. GOOD LUCK IN YOUR EXAMS :). P.S. even Ashah suggests making notes as well.

Try quizzes and creating audio clips and powerpoints to engage in your learning, also try to teach others so u gain a better understanding-you retain more things if u teach it to someone else you know! Also drink water for hydration and keep to a timetable so you fell structured and relaxed. Concentrate hard but only for 40 mins at a time or you'll get overloaded so do 40mins then have a 10 minute break with a snack to boost energy and assist concentration. x
