    It depends how you learn really! Do you learn best by physically writing out the notes, or are you able to learn them by typing them up and then learning them afterwards? I personally typed all of my notes (within reason, I couldn't do diagrams etc obviously!) for both GCSE and A Level, because I am quick at typing and handwriting would've taken far too long! Also, it is easier to edit and arrange notes that are typed, in my opinion

    Flashcards are a great way to revise. I use them for most of my subjects like
    English Lit
    Geography
    Science
    Urdu
    Quizlet is a useful website. You can make your own flashcards or search for flashcards. you can find loads for science

    I use the specification which you can get online. It has questions which I put on my flashcards and then I write down the answer for example: ''What are the effects of smoking and alcohol?''

    Flash cards, unfortunately, do nothing for me. Notes followed by some practice seems to be the trick for me! It overall depends on how you learn!
