    Listen to music you haven't heard before, your brain creates more connections between neurons when you do something new. This sounds bizarre but it works, got me through Unit 4 Chemistry by listening to System of a Down, which I hadn't listened to before.

    Good luck. You seem to be planning to nothing but revise from now until the exams. Exciting times.

    How about: Just do the revision instead of making lists on how to do it?! :confused:

    1) Review notes
    2) set a study schedule
    3) get help on things you don't know
    4) make mind maps
    5) type out all your notes again
    6) past papers
    7) practise doing questions
    8) record yourself saying your notes and listening to them
    9) write your notes own in post-it notes and place them everywhere
    10) memorise your notes into a tune
    11) cope out the textbook
    12) keep writing it until perfect
    13) keep reading your notes
    14) recite your notes in front of the mirror
    15) practise doing questions under exam conditions
    16) attend all extra lessons for your exams
    17) put your notes into revision cards
    18) set yourself mini tests
    19) get your friends to test you
    20) read around your subjects
    21) get involved in discussions about the subjects you're revising
    22) look, cover, write, check
    23) always keep a book of notes with you to review them on the bus etc
    24) concentrate on things you don't know

    that's as far as I can go lol

    my sure fired way
    copy notes into your own words from a text book or other and TYPE IT UP so you have all notes then nearer to the exam you go through the notes and break them down into 2-4 pages for quick note revision!! always worked for me

    100. Get off of TSR and stop procastinating, then actually revise instead of making threads about revising.

    for me it's:
    1. post it notes
    2. post it notes
    3. post it notes
    4. post it notes
    and so on and so forth until:
    99. stuff written on pieces of paper (post it note shortage)
