I write notes, notes and more notes until I think I understand everything and then I work through every pastpaper I can find so that I know how to answer each question to get full marks 

Hope this helps :)

Read the revison guide/ textbook and your notes

Past paper questions

Highlighting keywords or making flash cards might also help. 

Mindmaps

Good luck with your exam!

Don't just stick to doing one thing. Don't sit for hours reading through a book! Write mind maps (use lots of colour) do worksheets, listen to podcasts or audio clips, go through past papers so you can see where you need to improve. Little and often is best. It needs to be a continuous process, 10 hours in the week leading up to your exam won't be enough! Good luck :))

Use the specification which you should find on the exam board's website. If you can't find it, ask your teacher for it. You will then have a clear idea of what you have to revise. Also go over past papers. Good luck!

CGP revision guides - then as many past papers as u can, and study the markscheme, becos the same questions come up over and over again

^^ I agree, CGP revision guides are brilliant. Try and make mindmaps on the different key concepts within the Chemistry units, this should break the information down. The more colourful these mindmaps are, the better! This will help you remember the information you wrote down and organise it mentally.

  • First, and most importantly, notes. These can be brief, detailed, whatever works best for you, but reading is never enough. 
  • Test yourself. Revision guides often have quickfire tests which are really helpful, and there are plenty on here too if you don't have a revision guide.
  • GetRevising. There are so many amazing resources on here, which you could print off, highlight, break down, compress, reproduce, stick up in your house - anything. If you click on my name I have quite a few GCSE chemistry resources, and there are some users which have far more.
  • PAST PAPERS. It's no use knowing the information if you can't put it into context and apply it. Get yourself used to exam format - it will genuinely help

I got an A* in my chemistry GCSE, using these techniques, so I hope they help.
