    You could condense your notes. That forces you go to over the material, and also provides you with a revision aid, as it means that you have fewer notes to revise on. You could try creating mind maps or revision cards. You could also make up questions and see if you can answer them and get friends and family to test you.

    You must have a bad school

    I've done no revision yet, Basically I've got 3 1/2 weeks when I get back on Monday then we get nearly 2 weeks off before a RE exam, and then Media Studies exam and a Electronics exam which TBH all are pretty easy to do without revision and then we get a whole week off before the harder exams begin! :eek:

    DO NOT READ, you will not revise well doing that...your best way is to break all your subjects down into the separate topics, and then aim to revise them steadily up until the exams, and once you are on study leave you should start to look at what exams you have first, and which subjects you are the most weak on.

    BTW: I have 5 1/2 weeks until my GCSEs
