    What subjects are you studying?

    Different people will have different revision techniques that work best, you need to find what's most effective for you. Mind maps, making bullet points, reading, past papers, flashcards - there's a lot you can do.

    It depends on the subject. Flashcards don't really work for history, but they do for the sciences, sociology and the like.

    Well, I don't do any of those unfortunately, but if psychology is anything like sociology where you have to remember names and studies then flashcards are the way to go.

    revision techniques- https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/g/d...ow-to-revise-5
    Study timetable in case if you want to make one and don't know where to start:

    These methods pretty go with all the subjects...
    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.

    Record yourself reading your notes on your phone.
    Record yourself asking questions, whilst recording, pause to give yourself a chance to think before revealing the answer.
    Then play it whilst you're out and about.

    This works because:
    1. It's fun, you can read it as if you're teaching to a class, putting emphasis on certain words so you remember them clearly, changing your tone to make it more memorable. You can make it funny.
    2. You retain a lot of information just creating these recorded notes.
    3. Its better than using flash cards because you can listen to these when you're out and about.
    4. I've always believed that if we got to speak answers for exams we'd do better (well in my opinion i would)
    5. Better than faffing about with paper
