I used to go through the revision guide, and my notes, and make colourful notes from them, so I understood it myself, and also writing stuff down is better than just reading, and then when you've done the notes you can condense them into revision flash cards, and test yourself, or get others to test you on the facts :)

There really isn't other ways, because past papers are the BEST way because the questions are almost identical each year.

If you really want a better way to revise, then check some powerpoints on this website or go to some interactive good websites :http://gcserevision101.wordpress.com/

Other than that best ways to revise is have a chat with family/friends on the hard topics and memorise some quality answers.

A good way to revise is to summarise your information onto index cards because then you can carry them around with you everyone, they are concise and it means less weight to carry around rather than using a massive textbook or notepad.

MIND MAPS!!! My biology teacher said to use mind maps and I found them really helpful. They have to be colourful and clear to read. The good thing about them is you can use them for any subject: geography, english, history...Also, you can fit many topics on one page. Hope you find this helpful :)

It depends how dedicated you are to the subject. If you have a lay zay fair(apologies if the spelling is wrong) attitude to the subject activities on bbc bitesize are great. However, if you do show some determination toward the subject you should do past papers with a textbook to learn the answers you don't know. But if you want to get A*'s I would just write out all your notes and info in your textbook, but also do past papers with no external help.
