    Past papers are always your friend, and should form the crux of your revision once you have a grasp on the subject material. To get that grasp, I like to rewrite the best set of notes I have (textbook up until university, then my own notes) in their entirety.

    When completing past papers, be sure to mark them and redo anything you get wrong. In order to remember methods or facts, flashcards can be very helpful.

    Different techniques work for different people, so experiment and stick with what you find works. And never stick with anything that other people have told you they do, but you don't seem to be getting anywhere with.

    I too find writing things out helps me remember and understand, but I'm hoping to go into medicine and I surely wouldn't be able to do that then because of the amount needed to be learnt, what do you think?

    At university I found that it was important to write up my notes at the end of each week, so I had a clean set of notes to revise from. However, I still ended up rewriting them as part of my revision process (for a physics degree).

    Provided you manage your time effectively, it shouldn't be an issue, even in medicine.
