    Do you do past papers or just read stuff?

    Reading is not revising! Learn the content through flash cards, notes, revision guides or whatever works for you. Then do past papers and learn the structure.

    for me basically yeah i read it until it sinks in, then apply the knowledge to exam questions. usually i read all of my notes around 10 times before it stays in

    Watch crash course (John green) videos on YouTube to understand the content, then make flash cards to memorise things, then make answer structures according to the mark scheme

    I'm going to revise over each topic and make mind maps etc, and then after each topic try a few exam questions and give them to my teacher to be marked!
