    Mindmaps, colour (lots of it), short stories for those long 6 markers (more about that here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0nFkQ4cQhME), and just plain old past papers!

    Use the specification so that you know exactly what you need to know for the exams and then you can make notes on that (dunno about other subjects, but I know this helps with the sciences).

    And examiner reports can help you with finding out what mistakes to avoid in exams.

    Method of revision:
    - mindmaps
    - teaching others
    - recording yourself and listening back to it
    - repeating things aloud
    - revising with classmates
    - drawing diagrams
    - making a song of it
    - a silly story to help it stick
    - making notes from textbook then summarising those further into your own words (try having a limit on number of words to stick to key points)
    - writing things over and over again
    - using colour

    Make a list of all the topics, prioritise them by ordering in terms of which you need more help with/need more time to go over, then tackle each one

    If there is something you're particularly stuck on, ask the teacher for help!

    Get practise from exam and practise questions! It will help to reinforce things and find your weaker areas.

    Good luck!

    THIS, OP THIS.

    Hundreds of flashcards won't help you secure a good grade if you don't do past papers.
