    Or they could have bad memory.

    No, sorry, that was an ignorant suggestion. You must be right.

    I accept that revision is different for different people. But if you have bad memory you should be doing more revision than other people. If revision is hard it doesnt mean it isnt working.

    Its not that they're lazy, its that some people dont find it works or the fact that you have been TAUGHT this stuff already, if you revise before an exam it tests you on what you can cram into your brain in a period of time and remember, not necessarily what you have actually learnt.
    Some find that if they try to 'remember' so much information, when they do get into the exam room they try to recall everything at one moment before opening that paper and it brain-freezes them.
    So dont fuss over whether someone thinks revision isnt important, what does it matter as long as you use the technique that works for you? I.e. dont give a flying monkeys what they do, if they mess themselves up, its their fault not yours.
