    Hey guys.

    I thought it'd be interesting to know what is the most common method of revising. So go ahead and vote your most effective method of revision.

    And also, mention your most recent grades in the comments. E.g. if you're in A2, mention your AS grades. If you're at uni, mention your A Level grades. etc.

    I'm too lazy to make mind maps or big, colourful posters, I tend to just:
    Read -> make notes -> textbook questions -> past papers

    THE BEST way to revise is to make macro keys in WoW and SPAM while you're lvling up! In a raid situation it's best to have it printed in front of you if you're just a 2 key dps, so you can read.

    If you're a healer it would be much more diffcult.

    I re-write my notes into a revision book, so that they're all together. I add lots of colours as well to make them easier to read

    Wow. I never expected re-writing notes to be the popular one. I'll try it sometime. Although, I am worried that it might make my hand ache thus slow down revision. I do everything on my laptop and I prefer it that way as it saves ink and paper, and it's probably faster.

    Although, I do past papers and keep running out of pens and paper

    Oh damn. I forgot to add "Past papers". Meh.

    My most recent grades are from my January exams: AAC (resitting the C).
