    I started sixth form this year and I feel like Economics is going a bit downhill. I'm getting better but would strongly love to know what can keep this consistent. I've heard 'revise' so much, what does that explicitly mean though?

    Please do help and give reasonable tips. Much appreciated.

    It's going downhill, yet you're getting better? Hmm. I think what you mean is that the hill's cross-sectional rate of change is decreasing. Yes. That's it.

    There are many things that ensure consistent study. Firstly, enjoyment. It is extremely difficult to study consistently and with will power without enjoying a subject. Secondly, ability. Being good at something makes it much easier to study. But it sounds like you satisfy these criteria. Maybe.

    The people that keep telling you to 'revise' are correct. But the word can be thrown around with little thought. When I think of revision, I imagine reading through a text book, doing a past paper, marking that paper, and going over the good and bad parts. This works well for me as it is a methodical method for methodical subjects (I study Maths, Further Maths and Physics), and Economics is (pretty much) methodical.

    That said, it may be a terrible method for revision for others, including you. Some like to use mind maps, flash cards and the like, which I could never imagine as a form of revision. I think what I'm trying to say is that there will be a style of revision to suit each person uniquely, and it's up to him or her to find it.

    In summary, then;

    1. Enjoy Economics.
    2. Be good at Economics.
    3. Revise Economics.
    4. Get a good grade in Economics.
    5. Repeat for further levels of study.

    Hope it all goes well.
