How to revise this subject?

Showing 1 to 8 of 8


I have written out my notes and done a few past paper questions (By the way does anyone have any links to actual past papers).

What do you suggest I do now to really make sure I know the knowledge?

Thanks a lot :)

kep going over it, i rewrite my notes and when i did gcse i made fact sheets for each topic cointaining all the case studies for that topic and also made more detailed mindmaps of all the case studies. as for the theory i rewrote my notes and did past papers, learning the case studies is good but applying them to actual questions and situations is key. as for past papers, what exam board are you on and is this gcse or a level?

I am going to keep reading over my notes, I always tend to write my notes really detailed so I have got at least two or three A4 sheets full of writing for each topic of the unit.
I am doing unit 2 because we did units 1,3 and 4 in year ten and I can't remember how I revised for the unit 1 exam which is similar to unit 2. 

I am studying edexcel geography GCSE :)

Oh okay thanks thegirlwhoknewtoomuch, when you posted a comment did it come up with my name as the author of the comment?

I have tried to rewrite things and make them shorter for biology and it didn't seem to work for me as i find it really hard to cut sentences down and make them shorter. Because my teacher said that he used to write out his notes and then keep condensing them down until he had one flashcard for each topic of the unit, i don't know how he did it?? :)

i don't do that i just rewrite them i don't condense them, i just find the action of reading the notes then copying them seems to help, if you copy them up on paper first then on say a word document or powerpoint then you are reading it twice and if you highlight the key words you read it three times so thats why i find it helps.

and no my name doesn't come up all the posts look like they have been posted by you, this happens to other people i know.

I might try typing my notes out in a word document like you said, thanks

It's annoying because it's hard to tell who has answered the question instead you have to click quote or just ask who they are :P
