    Hi guys,
    I need some ideas on how to actually revise, because I think my current revision technique doesn't help me to the information stored in my memory. So if you guys can help me but putting your revision techniques, which would help me.
    Thank you!

    I use the textbooks, highlight the most important information then write it out into notes. Then when i've got the notes I usually leave it a few days, then try to write out a spider-diagram by memory, but use my notes if I forget. It seems to work for me but if you're more of a visual learner use lots of colours and posters.

    I suggest the following: make notes on a topic, expand on them notes, write essays on that specific topic, move onto the next topic, rinse and repeat for every topic by starting from the beginning again numerous times.

    Assuming everything goes well, you'll be able to get the hang of writing in essay formats and the information will stick with you.
