    You can try putting key terms and definitions on post it notes around your room, as well as making flashcards and testing yourself on them whenever you have the opportunity also, you could try condensing your notes as much as possible, and each time you condense them further you'll be learning them make sure you do lots of exam papers too

    Ok thank you would you say most of it is just learning what's on the syllabus e.g haber process, organic chemistry rather than actually having to use the knowledge and understand it. Im much better at just learning and recalling!

    There will be some questions when it's simply recalling knowledge, but in others you'll be presented with a situation that you won't have studied before, or an example you haven't done in class, but that uses the same processes and stuff, so you'll need to know how to apply what you've learnt too

    OK thanks. Would you say that (exactly) 2 months is enough to learn/revise everything at an A* standard for 10 subjects (including 2 weeks at Easter holidays)?
