Have you tried making notes? Revision cards? Watching videos online?
And what do you hate about the techniques you mentioned?

Summarise content so its concise on sheets of A4/A3 paper, so it's more understandable for you.
Rota repeat definition, model answers etc. I find many videos on YouTube explain difficult concepts well.
Give yourself prompts.
Repeat a little bit, then add a bit more.
Constantly review memorised content, to retain learnt stuff.
Finally do questions.

Revise notes.

Get a copy of learning outcomes if possible (ask teacher, if not look online at the exam website. I'm Scottish so sqa for me, they have the course outline online which includes outcomes, I'm guessing it's the same in England)
Read a couple of the outcomes, then write about them in your own words (copying text does little for remembering stuff). Rewrite until you're pretty confident with those points. Then move on to next couple and do the same. Once you've finished a manageable block, write a summary paragraph of what you just learned without looking at notes/the learning outcomes. And/or make a set of summary notes using the leaning outcomes, making sure you put the points down in a form you understand, not just copying them out. Once you've done this, if you can, get someone to test you verbally using the learning outcome sheet/the summary notes you made. After all this try some past papers to make sure you are able to apply the knowledge.
This is what works the best for me. Stay away from copying out stuff word for word and just reading notes, those are the proven worst methods of revision as you don't really have to process the information.

I like to condense information into one document and try learning it from there. Do revision early so you have time to do past papers too, this was my technique for AS bar some exams in which I only revised the day before as I didn't manage my time properly.

Yep. What I always do. You'll have to find your own technique.
