For the past few years I've been flooded with revision techniques and tips. None of them seem to work. I'm currently in year 10 and I've got my mocks in about 4 weeks time. I've literally tried everything and it doesn't work for me. I can't remember study cases or equations or definitions. The worst part about the expectations, I'm in all the top sets but I haven't been doing well with exams just for this reason, I'm great at coursework but exams are a real pain. Any suggestions to memorise/learn/revise stuff?

Past Paper Practice

(your Maths and Science textbooks should have lots of questions for you to answer; as for English, well I got a C so can't really help you there)

There's an app called ' Brainscrape' that I really recommend for remembering facts and case studies. It allows you to make flash cards and each time you answer a question you can rate on a scale from 1-5 how well you answer each question and if you rated it 1 it will regularly repeat this question, however if you rated it 5 it won't repeat this question as much .

You're like my education twin :five:
Honestly, I haven't been revising much either and my first exam is next week! (Religion and Life Issues)
Try doing past papers to see what you're good at and what you need work on. Try making up a few abbreviations for some equations (SOHCAHTOA is useful in maths)
And if you really cannot definition, try to come up with a unique or funny way of remembering it along with the proper definition.
Watch some videos about the topic, this always helps me!
Good Luck!

I am the exact same, I'm finding it so hard to study and can't seem to take in the information no matter which method I try even though my coursework grades are fine and I'm in the top sets. If you find anything that really works well It'd be interesting to hear.

well you see i know how you feel right now i'm in yr 10 and my GCSEs are in a week or so and i couldn't revise to but i found something really helpful write the topic you learned my eg will be chemistry and around your topic write down all you know about it without looking at your books and than when you think your done look over your book and see if there is anything you didnt write thats what you need to revise
than once you figured out what you need to revise read it out loud and record what you say and play it to your self again and again if you learn by listening to things
if not listening and doing than make a poster or something on that week point and if your both than do both
this helped me
