    I'm a bit of a cross between a visual learner and an auditory learner, and up until now I've always used visual techniques (handwriting notes, flashcards etc.) but I want to find more effective ways for me to revise for my GCSEs, as there's now just 50 days until my first exam.

    I always listen to music when I revise anyway, but that's mainly just to stop the noise that other people in my house make from distracting me. Are there any other auditory learner revision techniques that I should be trying?

    I'm an auditory learner. I'm doing my a levels at the moment and I still do this technique that I started at GCSE. I listen to classical music, this is the one i listen to.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jgpJVI3tDbY. Whilst having it play in the background, I read one page, or if it is difficult - one section of the text book out loud and then i say out loud what i can remember. If I can't remember a lot, I read it out loud again and do the same. Then i write it down on a revision card in simplified forms. It worked for me at GCSE - I got 3a*, 6a's and 1b. Good luck

    Thank you, I'll definitely be trying this
