    So I've got exams in 3 weeks I think? Not sure how to revise for them, English language and health and social care specifically. My gcses are: health and social care, history, business, English, maths, Ict and science. Any tips and advice would be great thank you!

    Oh same here, it's so annoying having to record the notes. Do you write what you remember after you finish listening?

    Yeah I think podcasts may help if you are willing to listen to it back afterwards and if you work best by listening to information. I think for science, if you have certain topics that you find difficult, you can see if there is video for it on youtube maybe. There's usually helpful stuff there. I like to make flashcards and just go over them again and again, you can see if that works for you. I just write notes for everything and memorise them. And also, try to understand the topic and not just memorise it because if you understand it, it will help you explain things in essays or exams better.

    For maths you'll probably be better off doing past papers if you understand and know how to do all the topics. Just practise and mark them to see what you get wrong. You can revise the topics that you got wrong afterwards.

    I think one of the best ways to revise (for me anyway) is to pretend you are teaching it to someone. So make notes on a certain topic, doesn't have to detailed, it can just be short points, then try to understand the topic and memorise it and then explain it to someone. When you're explaining it you're automatically making things clear in your mind and you'll remember it better.
    I don't know if this helps, I hope it did. You have a while for revision before exams so you should just start early.
    I am sure you'll do well, good luck (sorry if this is too long...hehe...)!

    I usually just listen to the podcasts, although writing down a short summary after would be a great strategy as you are testing yourself.
