So I got no idea how to revise
Like, how do I revise? I have a test on some of the stuff we have learned coming up and IDEK how to revise for it?

I have written up everything we have done in class into documents and we were told to make plans but IDK how like I never make plans I just write what I know, so now I am making plans but I just find myself writing the notes down again which is pointless.... so IDK how to make plans too
Simply writing under a support point "[researchers name]'s study on [whatever it was done on]" is just empty to me like how would I remember? Thern I write down hints then I end up writing everything down
such a waste of time! PLZ IM FREAKING OUT!

Rewriting the notes is not a bad idea.

After you've done that you can:

- make bullet points of what you can remember from the notes
- make a mind-map
- close the books and recall the points out loud
- rewrite essays then compare to previous essays that were marked by your teacher to see what you've correct mistakes (if any)
- etc etc

To be honest, I don't think revision is about finding THE BEST METHOD to help you memorize everything, but rather a combination of activities you can do to get the information imprinted in your head. Imagine a green field without any roads on it. You walk across the field, leaving a trace of stomped-on grass, but it is barely visible. Each time you use that route it becomes more defined, and after a while you'll have your own beautiful road.

That's the way I do my revision anyway. Good luck!

Thanks for the tips really appreciate it!
Just wondering How many supporting, criticising and IDA's, and methods points should I put into each essay?
