    using flashcards! by writing a question on one side, and then the answer on the other side, i am able to test myself!
    this is one of the most common methods I have seen everyone using... n I did this myself too
    however takes ages to make them

    I filled a book with revision notes, dozens of past papers, classical music and junk food

    I learn well enough through rote learning/copying, but remember what works for other people may not work for you

    If it's mainly essay based, learn technique/practice & read examiners' reports

    For all the names and dates and schools of thought, that seems to lend itself towards tables/flash cards

    Good luck

    Definitely flashcards for me! Although I also download podcasts and little song type things (where they make the lyrics relevant to the topic) and listen to them on my way to college (this really helped me for AS Psychology - there are people on youtube called WaheyProductions who make psychology podcasts)

    Haha it sounds super dorky I know, but for example last year for sociology I downloaded this:



    and it really helped. There aren't that many available, and not for every topic or even subject but yeah In the exam I was just singing it in my head haha

    Lol I like it! I thought you were talking about an app or something to create your own songs! I want something like that, but then again I have an awful voice and I would cringe.

    But I think converting text to audio files might work for me, when walking to 6th forms!

    Ohhh, that would be pretty cool but I can't sing either so i'd focus more on how bad I sound rather than the information

    Yeah I did a bit of that too - it does really help, especially if you put some jokes or something in there (at least, that works for me, maybe I'm just weird )

    Same! It's the worst when I try to tell them a funny story, I just laugh inbetween my words and I suppose it becomes un-funny to them when they finally understand what I am saying! lol

    It's even worse when you think you have a funny story and halfway through telling it you realize it won't be funny to anyone else but you're too far in to stop

    I type up all of my notes in a word document, and then I look at past questions and see whether I would be able to answer the essay, and I draw up a plan for each essay.
