    Okay, so it's been nearly 3 months since college began and I haven't even started my revision properly!

    I just wanted some advice and tips on revision techniques. Also when did you guys begin your revision for AS Levels?

    Thanks everyone!

    Start your revision off early! The earlier the better because you would have more time to get all that info into your head. Begin with familiarising yourself with the info, read ahead before the lesson using th textbooks you have so the lesson would be clarifying info and kinda like revision for you.

    Make notes in class as well as your own ones from textbooks. This makes sure that your know your info well, understanding it properly and writing it out in a simpler form to explain to yourself. Use revision guides if you're really struggling with a concept as those tend to explain it in simplified form.

    Do past papers to test yourself. If you didn't do as well as you wanted, do the paper again a few weeks later and see if you are inproving.

    Make little notes on sticky notes and stick them around your house. Those free time when your eyes are wondering around when you pee or sit at your desk or eating or sitting at the back of the car can be used to staring and reading/revising/reminding.

    Get friends and relatives to test you! Revise in friendship/study groups. Ask teachers for extra work. Always do your homework to make sure you've learned the topic well and is getting the questions right.

    I agree with the user above, start making your notes now and if you know what you're to be taught in the next lesson - have a read through the notes before the lesson, it'll make it a lot more easier to understand when it's being taught
