    I don't really have a particular learning style, all I know is that when I revise I like to fully understand the information.
    At the moment I revise using a question and answer format, Ill make a question or find one online best on the content I'm revising and then I will answer it myself.

    The issue with this revision style in the fact that it can be quite boring, I am looking for other revision methods, that don't involve copying so much down.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Well, why would you have to copy down the answer? Wouldn't you print past papers and then answer the question? ^^

    I don't just use past papers. I write out questions that I have come up with myself by reading the content I need to learn, this means I am copying out answers to questions a lot, as I revise on pc and paper, as I use the repeating tatic to learn things and it can take up a lot of time.

    That's a good technique, well, many people use this technique as well because it's effective I guess. But if it works for you and if it seems to be the best way, continue doing this despite it being time-consuming. Other than that, I'm not really sure of other 'effective' ways of revision. There's always the making notes while reading and highlighting the textbook....

    Make colourful mind maps and stick it on your bedroom wall. Sometimes I make my own audio revision clips and then listen to my clips whilst I am sleeping or on the way to school.
