    It isn't too late. I'm guessing your exams are in May which means you have a whole month to study! Mind maps/summary notes work for some people and not others. And there might be some premade notes on the internet for your subjects. I think you should read over the textbook/information you already have, then do past papers. At least that way, you'll have some knowledge before you attempt your papers. Good luck.

    Thank you ^^...so you think that if I go through the revision guides, highlight and then do questions is a better technique?

    That's what I usually do. Making notes does take a lot of time, and everything you're writing again, is already in the revision guides. So I think this way would work better for you

    Yes it will definitely help drill all the info in your head. From my own experience, making notes and mindmaps were a terrible idea and resulted in me getting terrible marks.; whereas, doing exam questions had helped me far more.

    If you are going to make notes, do so in bullet points and get straight to the points
