Any tips would be appreciated - I am willing to try any methods, and I am already aware of past papers and mind maps. If you have done GCSE how did you find it and what grade did you get?

Thanks

Which subjects do you study? For some subjects like Maths, practice is key.

For every subject, using the textbook and making notes on the key points and answering those questions before doing many past papers as you can is a good idea.

It is probably easier for me to send you this link - http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=3897511

Revision at the minute is just quite monotonous so finding ways to make it interesting is something I want to do

Thanks.

My Top Tips:
-Do as many practise questions as possible, be ready for what questions you might expect
-Go to the textbook and make revision notes
-Read them. Again. And again. And again
Check the syllabus to see what you should know
Write out your notes by hand
Memorise and recit the notes
-Don't listen to distruptive music or go on disruptive websites!
-Soothing background music
-Drink water
-Create mind maps for knowledge based exams
-Lots of colour in your notes
-Read up on your literature, make sure you have plenty of notes
-Go into school to revise
-Get oranised, plan what you're going to do in advance
-Also plan the breaks - not too long!
-Split the day into different sessions, not just one subject/assignment
-Do relaxing things if you need to de-stress.
-Get some fresh air!
-Do not plan long revision sessions
-Revise for 2 or 3 hours at a time - Maybe try the pomodoro technique :bebored: -----Search online for helpful revision notes if you find reading your books problematic --Only revise with friends if it works for you.
-Don't waste time!
-Not too loud or catchy music. Something relaxing
-Set revision targets and goals.
-Then tick them off once achieve
-Throw your phone in the bin (or maybe just turn it off)
-Clear your desk and arrange your notes.
-Make sure you have plenty of light.
-Make a personal revision timetableUse your walls!
-Stick up your notes up there for maximum visibility
-Make the most of revision textbooks and CD'sRevise wherever works for you.
-The shower perhaps? :bath:
-Don't just read, read any copy down.
-Also make use of the textbook questionsGet off the internet! once you have given this post a rep of course
