    for the sciences, (maths and phys), i read the text book, and did some questions from books, and past papers - without referring to the markscheme of course...and then comparing my solutions/descriptions with the MS...

    ...for geography, i just made shiit loads of notes from the text book, and the actual note-taking i found, was revision in itself

    I would read the class notes and textbooks. In addition, get some past papers and practice them, as the questions are quite similar year to year. Get some mark schemes too to check your answers, and know how you should answer them if the same question comes up again, and know how they are marked along with how the marks are allocated.

    For maths and physics, I made load of notes (I used 2 A4 lined booklet for A2 revision for just the 2 subjects) from a text book in my own words. And then practised with past papers, and any other relevant source available. Its really hard going, but I found it to be the only way to learn when I needed.
    For my art'y subjects, I mostly did passive reading. I found it pointless writting notes for essay type subjects, its no unproductive.
    I got AABC at AS level using this technique(A2 grades TBA). So I guess it worked well.

    Well in AS i just read notes and that seemed to work as well as doing past papersand other questions, but this year, particularly in chemistry i found my self making reef apon reef of notes cos i had two year to learn and remember, and for maths and f maths i went through my notes and did nearly every question on them as well as a load of past papers and so on.

    I also found listening to classical music really helps, classic fm 7-9 smooth classics at 7, that helped also i found i could really concentrate arounf 11 to 1 but i think this is because everyone had gone to bed so it was quiet.
    Plus if you actually go some where to revise like college or the local library you do alot more work than sitting at home with so many distractions, tv, computer etc
