Practice by doing past papers, that way you can work out exactly what you do and don't know. Also, if there are any revision sessions then go to them. I often think they will help but they really do! Hope these help you :)

If you know for sure that your trying your hardest then there's nothing more you can do than that is their;just pickout the things that you know are defiently helping you revise or look more into youre revision techniques,mindmaps might be great for memorising but not so great when you dont understand the stuff your writing down!X X

This site is actually my favourite revision site by far. Explore it, make sure you know the topics/subject thoroughly. If you're on foundation you can't get any higher than a C. Your teachers have probably promoted revision- these are great resources and teachers will do anything for you to succeed! Who cares if no-one else goes, go yourself! Read a revision guide and if a question is said which you don't understand, ask your teacher.

Maybe you should try creating rhymes or songs to help you remember key information for each topic I do this for French and biology and i find it helps me remember although in the exam people think im weird because im tapping my pen on the table in a tune that I thought of to help me remeber :) Hope this helps

Hi I used  to have the same problems as you had, but my grades were worse than yours. I am dylexic, but i found that working with all the standard techniques does help  but up to a point. Perhaps you should try revising with friends. You can talk about the subject and then you are just subconciosly testing each othe wuthout realising. Also perhap you should try revising in a differnt place everyso often. Past papers are also good. Trying to get as much help from yor teachers as much as possible is also invaluble.
