Powerpoints are fun. Write bullet points and then when you get bored add some pictures to make it interesting, then go back and read it through. Add colour, and maybe music and it makes it all more fun!

Also highlighting keywords but it gets dull after a while.

Make mind maps and posters which are colourful and fun too.

 add animations to it as well, all these things help you revise as you are reading through what you have previously written again.

I love doing animations. It really helps me to remember things, especially like in biology. I make animations of experiments I've done to help me.

I run a website named Revision Universe and we will make Revision Notes, Worksheets and Videos for you for free. The web link is on my profile page.

When writing your notes , use the colour red to write the main points or the key words - the bright colour of red helps you remember it and it makes them pop out from your black or blue ink. Also when highlighting , use any colour apart from yellow - its a known fact that other colours  such as highlighter blue or green or pink help you remember the main points better than using yellow.  

( we had someone come in and she told us how to revise and ways to remember points ^ that's what she said and it actually works :D  ) - hope this helps.

If you're revising for a language test you can write vocab on little sticky notes and have them on your mirror or whatever and look at them when you're doing your teeth/hair/makeup etc

Make checklists for what you need to revise for each subject and aim to tick off so many a day. For actual revision, I suggest condensing your notes down to small revision cards that you can take with you and go over during breaks or while you're on the go :) also, I haven't tried them out myself but if you have a suitable phone for it there are revision apps you can try as well.
