    I was wondering what ways you revise, perhaps how long too? Also if you are a girl/boy as perhaps we revise differently.
    I personally did most of my GCSE revision whilst trampolining, cycling (listening to audio) and revise for 20 minutes, and have a break for 10.

    Condensing notes into flashcards, pinning them onto my notice board and reading them when I brush my teeth.
    For chemistry, I read chemwiki because it's helpful to apply ideas I've learnt to new contexts. Doing loads of questions, past papers etc. And a newer one: Answering people's questions on TSR. I watched the threads for all my AS exams, and helped people with last minute questions. At GCSE I downloaded some podcasts onto my phone and listened to them, but it wasn't for me. I find it more useful to read, write, and type.

    -Add some snippets of my own comics! E.g. when I went over osmosis I drew an army of stickmen who were actually droplets/particles of water with their swords who were ordered to invade a blood cell because the concentration is lower.
    -I like to come up with analogies, even if they sound so stupid.
    -Usually I take notes and if I'm bothered I'll add some drawings which helps cos I don't get as bored and a while ago I used to draw comics (not like DC comics but my own style of drawings)
    -Tbh for GCSE I usually game on the first part of the day or watch a movie or something and then as soon as its 6pm or night time I'll start revising. (Idk it just switches me on)
    -Watch videos
    -Past papers

    Do past papers. Most people use them for exam preparation, but I also use them to help drill concepts into my head. As for learning how to answer questions, I just pay attention in class and thoroughly read the mark scheme for each question I answered incorrectly to see what I should've done. Keep in mind, I've only done this for maths (C1 and C2) so far, and can't comment on the effectiveness for more qualitative subjects like English and history.
