thats truly amazing well done!
how? share ur revision tips
The biggest mistake people make is by over complicating how to achieve success.
People try to incorporate all kinds of wacky revision techniques into their studying. They end up not being able to 'see the woods for the trees'. Those techniques distract you from from the very point of studying: remembering facts, which is essentially what A levels are these days. They limit what you do learn because they are often very time consuming and people waste so much time trying to find the magical technique, when in reality there isn't one.
Yes, people learn in different ways. Some people are visual learners and some are audio learners. Often, the best way to learn is to incorporate both styles. Sit down with the material, read it, regurgitate it onto paper and gradually condense that material so that eventually each topic is prompted in your mind by a single phrase. Try and speak to your parents or friends about what you are learning. If you study Psychology, re-tell a study or a concept you learnt in it. If you study English, re-tell a poem or a novel you have read, and try to explain all of the different layers of meaning the text had, how the writer used a specific structure to enhance that meaning or how they used certain linguistic techniques to convey an undertone. If you study History, re-tell a moment in history, explaining it's causes and effects, it's key highlights, the main figures of importance and any relevant social or economic components attached to it.
You will achieve by hard work. The best way to achieve success is to work hard.
As old fashioned as it sounds, sitting down with a book, reading it and then putting down on a piece of paper what you have learnt is the quickest and most efficient way to learn. Yes, that knowledge needs to be reinforced by discussing it with peers or family and revisiting the information on a continual basis, but complicating the process beyond that will often be unfruitful and won't enhance your learning any further. Any enhancement will be quickly over shadowed by the time it has taken to find those techniques and the amount of time it takes to implement those techniques.
