    So after summer I'll be in year 11 and I want to know what the most efficient way to revise is, after I revise I only retain a small portion of the topic that I've revised and I'm worried it will influence my GCSE results. So if anyone has any tips on how revise better it would really help me out. Thanks

    Make mind maps or revision card but draw pictures to make them more memorable.
    Also, START MAKING YOUR REVISION CARDS NOW BECAUSE I HAVE NOT GOT ANYTIME TO MAKE THEM AND MY EXAMS ARE NEXT WEEK D:
    Watch videos and memorise the songs on youtube.
    Continuously test yourself using flashcards through out the year.
    For maths: P.R.A.C.T.I.S.E!!!!
    It cannot be stressed enough, if you don't practise you wont be able to apply in your exam.
    Make colourful notes.
    Do flash sessions where you just quickly go through whole sections and write important bits.
    DO TEST PAPERS.
    As many as possible.
    And yeah, get a lot of sleep so you have energy.

    Make cue cards for every piece of knowledge you need for an exam over the holidays.


    Then when you've made the cue cards make a routine of witch you revise all of the content before your mock exams. Then do the same again for your real GCSE's.

    look at the cue Cards and make question you can answer keep doing this along with past papers to consolidate your knowledge until your exams and on your cars if you can make them colorful and add pictures, also try mnemonics on them. Thereafter you will have all A* grades garunteed if you stick to this.
