There's no 'right' way to revise as everyone has different techniques. Always make sure that you do your revision in small chunks such as 30 minutes slots & a mini break. Our school advised us to do 2 hours on a school night & 4 hours on a weekend. Memorising techniques include...

. Doing lots of past papers as similar questions come up in the exams every year, this will help you familiarize yourself with the questions & preparing yourself for the questions

. Look at the examiner's report & see what they made of the exams & they tell you how you can improve

. If you're a more visual learner I advice pictures as one of the best ways to remember things, the sillier the picture the easier it is to remember

. Do mind maps & write the key notes down, this doesn't work for everyone but have a go :) Exams a stressful, but if you start your revision early then you have more time to revise therefore it's less stressful

.On the bitesize website they sometimes have videos you could watch

.Your school may lend out podcasts, try listening to them & see if they help 

. Relate your revision to something you have experienced, this may sound weird but it helps remember it faster in an exam 

Before your exam remember to eat something nutritious, I always eat banana's before my exams as they release the energy slowly, making your brain function better (I've read this on the internet somewhere:L) & bring water with you in the exam

Good Luck in the exams & I wish you all the best :D

P.S apparently having fish oil capsules boosts your memory as it's omega 3. You may want to give it a go :)
