I'm sat with all my books around me but I don't know how to revise successfully! If I just write out notes it doesn't work and I finish revising having have remembered nothing! I'm panicking because I haven't found a good way to revise and remember and I need to!
Any advice! :/

Try doing different methods, such as flashcards, mindmaps, posters, character profiles (best for English), practice papers (invaluable, definitely do this), make quizzes, get someone to test you, etc. Just see what works best for you.

It completely depends on what type of learner you are. There are people (like me) who need something visual, so mindmaps and posters are a good way to go. Others study best by listening to recordings, so you could record yourself talking about the things you need to revise. This way you'll listen to your own summary of the book you'll need to study. Others find another really creative way to combine music with the things they need to study. Just try out the different options, you'll find your way.

I agree with what both CatusStarbright and aliliora said.

Revising with someone else can also be quite helpful, as it gives you a chance to bounce ideas off someone and gives you a chance to apply your knowledge to an actual real life situation.

Good luck with revising!
