    If you want some study tips that can help you... here they are:
    Study tips- video



    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.

    That's good, could you give an example like how you'd organise your week?

    Yeah sure, I study religious studies biology and chemistry I find that I need to give more time to biology and chemistry so this is how I go about it:
    Each day I will give myself a specific topic from each subject and unit to go over so for eg Monday Respiration (biology unit 4) DNA technology- (which is massive topic so I only cover two/three mini topics from it) then I do the same for chemistry the main thing is you have a structure to your revision and prioritise it based on your weakness (what you find hard) once I feel as though my content is good I start going over questions from papers based on each topic. Also remember when you are revising use the spec as a guide it'll help you out a lot!
    All the best !
