If you really want to be able to memorise better I highly recommend making serious investments in memory palaces.
1. Exponentially more effective than normal memorisation (studies support that it can increase memorisation speed and capacity by over 100%).
2. Makes revision significantly more enjoyable. You're essentially turning the mundane into something interesting using your imagination.
3. Makes you a badass. Although kinda overromanticised in Sherlock it does work similarly to how the show portrays it to and the feats of memory you can achieve will be ones others can only dream of.
1. Takes time and effort to learn. To become competent with this technique requires A LOT of practice. I would still consider myself somewhere between a beginner and an intermediate with it (but I have still been able to benefit a lot from it).
2. Energy consuming. I'll be honest, memorising a lot of information is doable with this method very fast, however it's pretty darn exhausting.
If you are really dedicated then this should do wonders.
I didn't write why it works because it would be very long winded. If you are interested then PM me and I'll explain and if not just know there have been hundreds of studies which have showed conclusive evidence that it really does work and it's extremely effective
Revising with smell? watch

So, I've heard association is very good for revision, main things I've heard are certain types of music for different subjects.
Also heard different smells work too,
anyone have any evidence/experience?
Thinking of getting a different essential oil for each of my subjects
