    what are the most effective ways of revision?
    This really depends on you, what do you think benefits you?

    Anyways here's a few of my tips:

    Mathematics: All I can say is past paper questions. Only start doing the past paper questions once you are sure you have covered every topic.

    Science: I used to record myself talking and listen to it when commuting or something so I remembered every little detail. Yet again, once I knew all the content I did past papers.

    English Language: Practise your writing skills, reading also helps build your vocabulary. I found it really useful to read the newspaper daily and analysing them.

    English Literature: Make sure you are confident with the books you are studying. Try and summarise the books you know in bullet points and check if you have covered each important section. Analyse every single thing in the poem, each little bit has a meaning. Try to compare different poems.

    Not too sure which subjects you do.

    Other than that, you could create a revision timetable and work from there. Be sure to give yourself enough break time. For instance work for 2 hours and break for an hour.

    Keep all distractions away from you. Give someone your phone and tell them to only give it to you during your breaks. Be really strict with yourself, so if you miss out on an hour of revision time make sure to put that hour in some other day in your revision timetable as forfeit.

    Hope this helps.
