    Is it a bad idea to do the same revision technique for everything? What I've been doing is condensing notes from my class notes and the textbook, and then made a mindmap for each chapter/topic.
    Done this for sciences, all 4 english lit books (main characters and themes), computing and history.

    If it's helping you to remember everything, then no

    You could consider trying out a new technique for a day just to see if it's effective - but as long as it's working for you, then it shouldn't be an issue.

    Thanks
    I believe it's working for me, but I'll do past papers next week to check and I'll try out other techniques too

    Not necessarily, but some topics/subjects might require different ways to help you remember everything. If it works for you stick with it, everyone is different.
    If you have found a way that works for you then that's really good, many people get to uni and still don't really know how to revise.
