    For Maths I've looked at every past paper there's been for the last few years and printed off each question that I didn't understand or know how to answer (tended to be the last few pages in each past paper) and then just taught myself how to answer it.

    For the other subjects I've just learned key points and vocab by repeatedly writing things out, making flash cards, saying it to myself, look write cover check etc.
    (The whole "revising by making posters in bright colours" just does not work for me)

    I got 20 Exams.... :/
    I'm reading CGP for Sciences, and when Study Leave starts (3rd May) I will do a past paper in each every day.
    For Maths, its purely past papers but I don't do them regularly because Core 1 is easy-ish
    For English, I guess I'll just take the A (advice anyone?)
    Everything else is learning books....

    Just write out the stories as many times as it takes before they stick (this was a lot for me..maybe 7/8times) Read the text book in bed etc.. repetition is the key IMO

    Then pastpapers

    In the actual exam write down ANYTHING that you think might get you the mark as you don't get marked down for contradiction/ saying something wrong..

    I did this and I got an A* In the real GCSE after getting an E in my mock about 4 months before.

    I always find that, the information takes ages to stick but after a few times it will "click"

    It just requires repetition, it will click

    I am revising for my Alevels at the minute and I don't remember much but I know it will "click" before my exams so I am not worried!

    Hello...

    I have: Biology 3, Chemistry 3, Physics 3, English Literature, Religious studies, History paper 2 (source skills).

    The best way for me to revise is to learn and make notes. Make sure you do re-revise everything because you don't want to forget.

    Good luck everyone!!
