    wow well done how did you revise for Biology and Chemistry
    Mostly by making notes and crying?

    For GCSE I made little flashcards with the important points - in our revision guide it was split up into smaller sections so I did a flashcard for each and kept them in little folders in my schoolbag to flick through every so often. For A level I've been buying A3 sketchbooks for £1 each and doing 1 page per topic. If you like making diagrams and doing longer notes and explanations then I'd suggest using sketchbooks or notebooks, I've found it a lot easier than small flashcards.

    How ? How did you revise?
    Past papers the night/morning before each exam, I'd stop once I reached a percentage I was happy with

    Did you create notes, or just past papers?

    I revised by reading my notes mainly. The subjects i got A* in (English lit and RE) i did past papers for and read lots of examiners reports as well as the specification.

    I did virtually no revision, 3 hours a day at the most because GCSEs were disgustingly easy.

    I made a note of any topics I found difficult as I did the past papers, then any I got wrong as I marked each one, then made a few notes/read over each topic before doing the next paper.

    Yeah sooooooooo indie. As soon as I realised it wasn't a dead roach I was just mesmerised by a sudden realisation of the Indiness you posses. It's something special.

    Depends what you class as indie, haha
    The Neighbourhood are pretty good, same goes for Glass Animals, Kraftwerk and Frank Zappa.
