    I'm an auditory learner, so I learn best by hearing things. I learn visually, but to a lesser extent. Sometimes I'm a combination of the two, for example I like watching videos on certain topics. Anyway...

    the usual way of studying is to read a textbook. Been there done that. Then taking notes without looking at your textbook. I've tried this technique a few times, combined with past papers, I STILL didn't get the grades I wanted.

    I've tried voice recording a few notes but I feel like that's not enough. I know people have their own individual ways to learn, but for you what is the best revision technique?

    Well like you said it differs between people.
    If you are sure auditory is best for you, have a conversation with someone (a classmate?) over what the textbook says. Read it together, outloud, and discuss it so that it sinks in better.

    I read the textbook. An especially good time to read is right before I go to sleep, I think because brain stores information in REM sleep and they last longer that way
