    So as a student, I am wondering about the technique of learning that students imply for GCSE and Alevels.

    Do you guys like read a chapter and then solve questions at the end of it and move on?

    Or do you guys read a chapter , listen the important bits from your own self and then solve some of the questions and move on.

    I have this phobia of forgetting information so it's taking me quite long to go through a chapter for example in Physics.

    Am I doing something wrong, is there a technique regarding the progression of learning when it comes to O/A levels?

    Wow, you seem to be on fire with questions this evening!

    I don't generally read the textbook and tend to rely on information the teachers give me and revision guides. If I do though, I'll read a chapter, summarise it in my own notes (which I can then refer back to), work through some questions and then move on.

    Are you teaching yourself by any chance? I would recommend breaking it up a little and using other techniques to learn rather than just going through the text book such as mindmaps and flashcards. That's what I'd do but I guess it depends on how you learn best.

    Everyone is different and there isn't one set way to do things.
