I am!
I'm taking:
~ Maths
~ English
~ Chemistry
~ Physics
~ Biology
~ History
~ IT
~ Geography
~ Sociology

I revise by making short notes + doing exercises in the textbook for those topics (for me graphs) I don't really understand. When making notes I also write down important things to remember e.g. Difference between rational and irrational numbers (or just jot them down on sticky notes and stick them in front of your desk, around your room etc. so while your brushing your hair for example you can re-read ur sticky notes).

Past papers are also very important to do since they give you ideas + insight on the type of questions you will most likely meet. Reeeeally important to do them!
So that's my study strategy for maths, hope it helps!

Hello, I'm Ciara,

I'll be taking the following:

~First English Literature (Unseen)

~First English Language (Coursework)

~Hindi Second Language

~History (Germany Depth Study)

~Extended Maths

~Physics

~Chemistry

~Biology

~Art

I often compile a set of notes which contain the important formulae, procedures for a certain question, tables for comparisions, etc. I often find that collating my knowledge into a tabular fashion assists in furthering my understanding of the text.

I too find that past papers are useful during revision, so use those wisely.

Hey! I'm taking:
- English Language (CiE)
- Additional Maths (FSMQ OCR)
- Double Science (Edexcel)
- Triple Science (Edexcel)
- French (AQA)
- Geography (Edexcel)
- ICT (Edexcel)
- Food Technology (AQA)

Exams taken:
- English Literature (AQA) A*
- Maths (Edexcel) A*
- Core Science (Edexcel) A

To revise, well I'm not really one to talk because I usually don't revise until like the night before the exam and cram, and it doesn't usually work.
But I do really like making and using flashcards with little pictures on them, then having them on like a string for each subject and just go over them.

Good Luck!
