    You do mostly essay-based subjects I'm guessing? I also do English Literature but with Spanish and History so I also have essay-based subjects. I recommend making sure you have all of the knowledge for the topic, but revise this early.. like now? So that you have LOADS of time for essay practice in timed conditions, this for me is the best way to revise because it is effective and it forces me to think like I would during the exam. Spending ages revising the knowledge stuff of your subject won't be useful unless you know how to use it.

    In terms of revising all of the context stuff, I think brainstorms are good for essay based subjects, flashcards the usual kind of stuff. For English, definitely memorising the quotes and context with them - this is pretty useful, whether it's creating a list/bank of wider reading quotes or something like that, this for me is pretty useful. Can't say I can help much with Psychology, but I took Sociology last year, I just found ways to memorise the case studies and sociologists by using flashcards and by condensing the topics into the studies only because you should already know what each topic is by now! Also, redrafting past essays are really useful, you get to see where you tend to make your mistakes and really improve on that.

    Good luck!
