Hi, I have a OCR as chemistry exam next Tuesday and I'm finding it hard to remember all the definitions. Does anyone have any tips or ways to remember lots of definitions I could try out?

I do memory games - Write the definition next to the word, like a grid, and cut them all out then match them up turned the other way around, so theres loads of blank squares on the floor

Memory = neural connections in the brain

Neural connections = repetition.

So... repeatedly go over the definitions. Once every 3 hours of your day. Post some on the fridge, on your wall etc.

I would record yourself saying it, perhaps try to say it in a weird voice and then playback it all day and honestly sleep with it playing! It worked for me😊

Write all the definitions on revision cards then go over them and over them, you'll be surprised how quickly you retain them

I second this ^^

Come exam time I always had post its everywhere.......wall next to loo......fridge..........bedside table........ but only do it strategically, don't go overboard with the post its!

Just reading them out loud when you see them helps it sink in, even if it's just getting the milk out of the fridge etc..
