Hi! I'm in year 11 and I find sometimes making acronyms or rhymes help a lot, especially with small points and definitions.

Also try making small cards with the question on one side and the answer on another, you can have them in your pocket or whatever and test yourself throughout the day.

Hope this helps

Acronyms are always good - arguably cheesy but fun and they stick in your brian :) Go on the approach of the wackier the better.

Also being a musician i like to take some old and catchy songs and sing my own lyrics to them, which i try to rhyme as well to make it easier to remember.

One important feature and to make the most off is Colour! Use it everywhere on walls, notes etc. I used to put up postit notes of one word and expand on them each time i walked past them, then, as i got closer and closer to the exam so would loose their sticky-ness and drop of, or i would take them off, but where ever they were originally i would stop and recipt the word and description of it and blah blah blah
It may be useful to write the definition you need to know on the back of it - so if you do forget it's easy access :)
