Just thought I'd share my revision tips. I'm currently doing AS so this works great, I don't know how well it will work for GCSE but I guess you could give it a go. Firstly, don't panic over making a structured and fabulous timetable. You don't need to make one from scratch. Use your regular timetable that you use at school and just adapt it. Go through your timetable and replace your subjects with topics for example if you have biology lesson 1 on a Monday, in your revision timetable put enzymes. Colour code it as well, this really helps with organising yourself. If you use this method then you don't need to panic about spending hours making a revision timetable and you don't have to worry about what topic to revise because you've already put it in your timetable. Secondly, revise the content and do as many past papers as you can, this way you are training your brain to make links to different topics and how to answer exam questions. You could also factor in exam practice in your lovely revision timetable that you just made! Hope this helps!

Good advice, thanks for sharing!

I'm in year 13 doing A2 now. I never used timetables simply because I never stick to them.

Some techniques I would advise are flashcards. Write key terms, dates or short questions on them and get people to test you, or test yourself. This was particularly useful for me.

Good luck with AS!
