    Hey, i'm currently revising for my AS levels, and literally no information is going in. I revise one flashcard, but then when i move onto another, i forget the info which i have previously learnt (the first flashcard) and this always happens! does anyone have any good techniques which will allow me to revise multiple flashcards, rather than forgetting info once i revise new info. Thanks!

    Try saying the information out loud and sometimes even giving it a certain rythm might helps... works for me =P also while revising try chewing gum... it connects the smell with what youre revising so it helps you remember! Hope this helps!

    Try using a site like Quizlet or Memrise if you're learning vocab or definitions. They have several 'games' which I find really help. What kind of flashcards are you making? I find that, for me, putting questions on them helps me to learn things.
    If it's more information, then try to question yourself. I did some detailed flashcards for geography which were basically just notes but I did well in my mocks just from making them and reading through them. As I go through the flashcards I ask myself questions and force myself to remember what I've just read without looking. When I've done that I then move on to the next card. At the end I might skim through the, but that's it.
    I hope this helps!

    what else do you do to revise? I used to spend hours on flashcards for GCSE, but now for AS I just stick with exam questions and mark schemes and I find this way more effective

    Yeah past papers and mark schemes seem quite helpful! I do them for geography, but i dont know what to do for business its on the new spec so there arent a good variety of mark schemes... also, if ive done loads of flashcards, so for like.. geography, shall i read them all over thoroughly and then do loads of past papers? or do i do a bit of revision and like a past paper, and then do a bit more revision and then another past paper? Thank you
