    I find the best way is to use a book and write things out over and over until I can write it again from memory! You can help remember it by reading it aloud to yourself. (Or if you have siblings, force them to listen as it really helps )

    Does anyone know if you get the equations given to you in maths and further maths exams at A level, i.e the SUVAT equations for M1. ....Also is there a rule against a calculator being too advanced cos my tutor said there is which seems pretty weird??

    You're not given the SUVAT equations. I'd suggest against a graphic calculator etc., a CASIO fx-991ES plus would be a good choice though.

    If you have one of those graphical calculators they are not allowed.
    And Yes but you don't get every single equation sometimes. Ask your teacher to print you one off

    Nope, you get nothing for M1, although not that difficult to remember. For calculators if it can do algebra symbolically then it's not allowed although numerical calculators e.g. finding indefinite integrals and stuff like that is allowed. In my school the teachers never check calculators and they don't "Reset" the memory either so you can take one which isn't allowed although there's still a risk and it also gets on your conscious that you cheated.

    I make brief summary notes at the beginning of my revision 'cycle'. Then I spend ages going over them and reading supplementary from textbooks, etc. I find it helps if you make colourful and varied notes, e.g bullet points of key info, date timelines, drawings and spider diagrams where appropriate, etc.

    Once I've been over the notes thoroughly I hit the past papers for sciences and maths, under exam conditions and then mark and most importantly, learn the mark schemes and where I've gone wrong. Then I focus revision on those topics and do practice qs before attempting the next paper. For essay subjects I just do detailed plans because I find writing essays can waste too much time during revision; my plans contain all the information to write a good essay, all one would need to do is put that into prose. Then near exam time I just read over all of this, again.

    I hope that helps a little bit. For what it's worth, there is no 'one size fits all' approach to revision that works. The above method was developed by my over the last few years and I've gradually become more effective at revising. But I would stress that, for most people, reading from textbooks and notes alone is not enough.
