    Draw up a list of all the things I need to know, write notes, read them over repeatedly and cram them in my brain :yy:

    Not sure how well that would work for science subjects though :dontknow:

    I write notes on the subject

    Then I put on loud music and sing/dance to get the notes in my head. It works wonders... I have memorise massive amounts of stuff in a small amount of time in the past. It is very tiring though, regular breaks are required and you will get headaches, if you start revising the night before the exam you will feel worse than death in the morning.
    Best do it over 2 days with plently of sleep.

    I believed I described the verb cramming? You only remember the stuff for the exam, its short/medium term memorising at best.

    For A levels, the CPG books are a great place to start. Though I admit, when it comes to Maths and Stats this is far from my area of specialisation, so I may be completely wrong in regards to these subjects.

    I'd suggest revising in short bursts (30 minutes, then 15 minute break or whatever). Don't cram yourself with past papers just yet, as you said, months to go; perhaps do one so you know what they're going to be expecting of you, but save the others for awhile.

    Also, when revising, creativity can be your saviour. Even if it's something stupid like covering your wall with Postits which have your notes on, it can make it more fun (and hence you'll be able to endure it for longer) and greatly boost absorption levels (of course, postits is just an example, other techniques might work better for you). Background music is winwinwin too.

    look through the specifications so that you can read up on everything before maybe you have covered it - this way you will get a better understanding of what you need to do. other than that past papers for maths and science always work. and rewriting everything a million times is amazing for revision. hope this helps!! xx

    I'm doing the same subjects as you, for the science subjects - mindmaps for maths - past papers and textbook. Then keep going over past papers.
