    By the title you already know my problem. I'm having a hard time remembering what I learn for more than 2 weeks and revision isn't going well right now.
    Anyone know something which may help me study and revise better for my kind of learning?

    I'm more of an auditory learner, but i guess any help is better than no help, right? :P
    What i do, and i suppose this would help you (since you say you're more of a visual learner) is make notes and then repeat them to myself and with a few friends just to clarify certain things and set my mind straight.
    Try to do it consistently, watching videos, one thing i can certainly recommend is making notes while watching, i found this an easier way of getting information instead of in one ear and out the other, i would actually start to remember things.

    So yeah, first you'll need some of these excellent biology resources(videos) that i've used. Some just because i'm interested in the subject, and others which intersected with my course(i do AQA AS) and i've took away new information i wouldn't have learnt otherwise.

    Brilliant informative videos by Khan academy.

    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMRjxFmT1QqzuY9U0XX1SzQ/videos
    This is something only really helpful if you do AS AQA but what is done is explained simply, and in a way that is easy to digest.

    Might go through things a little quickly, but the videos are amazing quality, and i feel like they provide amazing analogies.

    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3U...X6VM3JKbg5EoFQ

    These are, i feel, the highest quality channels in terms of videos. Although the youtube search bar is most likely going to be good as well, don't forget about it

    I'm sure you've heard of the website already but http://www.thealevelbiologist.co.uk/home has videos embedded into many pages for many topics, with pictures for almost everything i've used.

    One other thing i can recommend is doing mind maps, sticking them up around your bedroom(if possible) using some blu-tac if you've got it laying around. Don't pressure yourself to do everything at once, you've got time to split the mindmaps up,deal with them one chapter at a time.

    I hoped i helped(at least a bit), good luck with your biology, sorry there not many links if i find the time i'll try and update with more.
