    I achieved all A-A*'S in my GCSE's mainly using these techniques (Currently in year 13):


    3. FLASHCARDS- Making flashcards is a quick and simple way to remember key information. For each unit or topic, simply make some flash cards of the vital information that you are required to know. Then use these flashcards when you are memorising certain information as well practising.

    2.VIDEOS- Depending on how you learn, watching videos of certain topics is really helpful. At times, watching videos can be more helpful than your teachers in class. Also, during these videos, make notes of anything anything that you consider important. This was especially helpful when revising for maths; Basically got me my A*.

    1. PAAAAAAAST PAPPPPPPERS- These are literally cheats to gaining the best possible grade. When learning information, test your application by doing various past papers. After you've completed a paper, go back and slowly mark it seeing particular points where you've done really well. After highlighting your weaknesses (questions you've got wrong) revise these topics and topics over again then do another past paper- It's literally a cycle.

    Hope this helped you Feel free to ask any questions
