    I think everyone is different. Some people just type / re-write out their notes, some sit and memorise loads of information, some make posters / mind maps... the list is endless. Maybe try a few things and see what is the most effective way for you?

    When people say you can get top grades at A-level through memorisation, they do expect you to apply some common sense. Feel free to memorise your textbook and prove me wrong though.

    You need to:
    - Understand all the content, THEN
    - Do all the past papers

    In that order. Do that, and you'll get straight As.

    Not, like, 8 times in a row, but if you come back to it every day or every few days then you'll be more likely to remember it.

    It depends really, on you, and what it is your trying to learn.
    The more you go over it and try to recall it the more likely you'll remember it.
