    I just thought I'd share some revision tools and anyone can drop their ideas in the comments.
    I find that working in short bursts of 45 mins works because that way, I don't overwork myself and have breaks in between to ensure that I don't get fed up with revising for a long period of time. Moreover, I find that drawing mind maps for revision helps because I can get my thoughts and ideas down in a clear way. I think doing practice papers helps to because you get a taste of how the exam questions might be structure.
    I hope this is helpful and useful; if you have any thoughts, just comment them below

    Method of revision:
    - mind maps
    - teaching others
    - recording yourself and listening back to it
    - repeating things aloud
    - revising with classmates
    - drawing diagrams
    - making a song of it
    - a silly story to help it stick
    - making notes from textbook then summarising those further into your own words (try having a limit on number of words to stick to key points)
    - writing things over and over again
    - using colour

    Make a list of all the topics, prioritise them by ordering in terms of which you need more help with/need more time to go over, then tackle each one
