You can do many things. Personally, I do the following when revising:

-Create mini pocket sized flash cards on the subject, each one summerising a page or so. On other flash cards all the little details are recorded. I carry around these flash cards everywhere, so in any spare time I can go over them, testing myself before reading each one and then seeing what I have left out. If I forget anything, I focus on that until I know it like the back of my hand.

-As flower123 said, get as many past paper questions as possible! I always do this and it really helps.

-Record all of the subject on a PC yourself with some kind of recording application, you can then put this on an MP3 player or CD, listening to it in the car, your house or even at night.

-Research has shown that even intelegent adults are easily distracted after concentrating on the same subject for more than half an hour. Study/revise for 1/2 hour and take a five mintue break, talking a quick walk around the house, in the garden etc. Have a cold drink before you get back to revising.

-Finally, don`t just revise when exams are nearing! That`s the biggest mistake loads of people make. If you want a good grade, you have to revise everyday from the day your course begins. If you haven`t done this, start revising effectivly as soon as possible.

-If you ever find youself doing nothing, such as in TV advert intervals, just read over your notes. Even if it is just for two minutes, this can really help.

Good Luck!

i think the best way is to really memorise what you have to learn and test yourself over and over again and do as many past paper questions you can get (once you have done all the questions go back and ty doing them again) this was the best way i found to revise for biology am doing a2 so there is a lot of analysing and how science work qs for those i think past paper qs work really well =)

print out the long answer qs and the mark schem for those
