I find that writing things that i need to remember, like definitions or a psychology model, on a whiteboard helps alot :) And using colourful pens when making mind maps about key information is really helpful!

A way I revise is I read from a text book or the internet, after I have read what I think is enough I write everything down that I have learnt from memory. If I cant remember something I don't look back at the text book until I have wrote everything down . Once I have written everything down I then anything I have missed I go over agian then write again . This is really good because at the same time I'm learning and remembering but I am also making revision notes!

I find that a great way of staying both engaged (which ultimately helps memory) and assessing your understanding of the subject matter is to explain it to someone else. This also helps your exam technique as you are practising articulation of knowledge (which is what examinations are) and building confidence. It also helps who ever your teaching and in turn they can explain something else to you. 

Also, you want to get in as many different mechanisms as you can because you are more likely to remember something that you both read, wrote and heard than something you just heard.

So in conclusion:

Team up, engage, articulate and gain confidence.

read+write+listen+say= 90% or more recall whereas read=20% or less recall.

Don't stress, getting the right amount of sleep, water and good food is just as important.

Good luck x

I find writing down what you need to know on a blank piece of paper quickly as you can. Then look at it for however long you need, then on the back doing it again but this time from memory. Keep going untill you get everything on your list :D It helps me lots and lots especially for music and philosophy when remembering things is key :) Also found it MEGA helpful with science x Good Luck!!!

Depending on the subject, for long essay questions with evidence/case studies needed, find all the past exam questions you can and then limit each one to an A4 sheet, fill the sheet with the main points, any particular evidence you need, maybe even sentance starters. This can help just revising broad and specific topics but also as a revision guide for later on! :D hopes this helps
