what do you mean by revising then re-revising, do you just mean going over what you did when revising for that particular mock? but surely in order to understand something you have to remember it right? how would you say i try to understand it? making up my questions sounds like a great idea! i'll defo try it out as well as making mind maps and cue cards!
so do you take notes on the computer or just make the model answers on it? thank you soo much for the advice!!
my main fear is forgetting, i am always scared that i might forget
Yeah I mean going over it again and again, probably topic by topic until you're sure you know it well. (Even the stuff you think you're good at, I always seemed forget everything even the stuff I thought I had nailed. I suppose it's easy to forget since there's so much information to learn!)
No way. I understand things before I remember them (maybe I am just backwards). Are you doing AS or A2 btw? In order to understand things I just read it really slowly, draw pictures of what it would look like in my head, and just piece it together slowly instead of trying to take in the big old chunk of info.
I just make model answers on the computer. You know essp. for long qs that require you to describe/explain a loooong process. I bullet point my answer (sort of as you'd find it in a mark scheme)? You can cut and change your model answers too after doing a mock and looking at an actual mark scheme
PS: Remember to look at the spec. and follow it. I have realised that there's quite a bit of stuff that you don't need to remember. I'm on OCR I emailed the exam office and they said that anything which isn't on the spec can't be directly asked about. So there are some definitions you don't need to know off by heart, just the ones the spec explicitly mentions.
BLABLABLA Sorry- I write far too much. It's not a problem and good luck! You won't forget if you always test yourself (even if you mentally ask yourself qs and answer them)
