    how do you revise?does it work well?

    Read and re-read notes you've made in classes. Use flashcards to make your notes more condensed - this is good as it helps you to remember things from just looking at a few words (useful in exams). Try different techniques of revision: making and watching powerpoint presentations, making leaflets/posters, saying/singing your notes out loud (this can help make the information 'stick' easier in your brain!) If possible, get someone to help test you (get them to go over your condensed revision notes and ask questions on it). Stick up post-it notes (or similar) around the house: bathroom, kitchen etc. Every time you see your notes, it should help you to remember them more!
    Remember to take breaks in between revision though! Resting your brain is just as important! Good luck!
