Sorry if there is already a thread on this.

I was not sure how tot make revision notes for GCSEs. I'm in year 10 and was hoping to find out what the most effective way of making revision notes is. Is it to make revision cards, to make notes on A4 and put them in a folder or is it to do it in a A5 notebook? I want to make notes for: maths, french (mostly vocab), history, chemistry, biology, physics, religion studies and maybe english.

please tell me what you think is the best way and if you can tell me why and where I can buy everything i need to do that.

Sorry if you cannot understand anything i have said.

Try to go according to the syllabus by that I mean make notes in the sequence of the topics in the syllabus. That way you can make sure that you are not missing any topic.

Don't make notes on separate pieces of paper, it is really hard to keep them together. Try to go with a register or any copy.
For formulas ,definitions or anything that has to be learnt by heart use a notebook, which is small enough to fit in your pocket.
Try to make simple notes which are easy to understand. Avoid using hard words and complicated sentences, so that the week before exams you don't find it hard to revise the notes.
Try to keep that small notebook (which will have all the formulas and definitions) with you. So that you can keep revising and memorizing on the go.
One more thing, don't just rely on the notes. Try to do as much past papers as you can. I believe that past papers are the best source of revising and clearing concepts. Whenever you solve a past paper and you find a hard question, try to look into the mark-scheme. Even than if you don't understand, ask your teacher. Just don't leave any question unsolved, who knows it might be that such a question comes in you exam.
All the best

The best way to revise for GCSEs is by learning from the textbook, this is the best way until A levels and you need to know information that is very in depth. For all sciences, you can revise from the cgp books, maths, also the cgp revision guide, religious studies also the textbook . Plus more subjects. Making notes wastes a lot of time, which could be used for actual revision.
