Read some notes and keep writing them, it works for me. Write everything down you learn, it'll go to your brain. 

Answer some exam questions! Ones from past exam papers are by far the best if you can get them. Spend a day or two practising doing the questions. This is very important as it stops you from being shocked by what they're asking you when you sit down at the exam table. Any questions you can't do, ask your friends/teacher.

Final Stage - Remember those notes you made when you were reading? Study those the final night/morning before the exam to memorise the key facts.

I guess you could try a quiz online or talk to your friends. If you find you are an all 3 learner then I suggest you make sure you tick all the boxes when revising! Reading out loud, writing notes in chunks or bullet points, drawing out charts and actually doing active things encolved with the subject can all be really good revision tecniques :) xxxx

how do you learn best in school? is it talking about the topic you're learning? is it interaction? reading? writing? when you know how you work best in school then apply it to your revision techniques, for example if you learn well with interaction then try doing quizzes (there are loads online for every topic - if you're doing GCSE try Bitesize), or ask your friend/parent to test you.

You could do what I do for some subjects (like french orals) and sing the words so they get stuck in my head....i remember the lyrics to songs so well so i just turned my reveison into songs :) but if you do this don't spend ages coming up with a song or tune, just use something iike bob the builder and put your notes into it without changing them...

hope that helps :)

You can try all of the techniques your classmate use or one you prefer and do past papers after,this helps you see to your results after and you decide which one works best for you. I personally think if you read the books, then write notes and then revises them, then do as many past papers as you can, you can reach a high level.
