    Just write notes for the topics that you feel are quite challenging for you

    I thought it was a waste of time but for A Levels im definitely writing notes as there's more content and I need to understand it rather than just memorise unlike GCSEs where you can get by just by memorising. If you think it will help then go ahead

    Everyone learns in different ways but unless you have a photographic memory notes are very useful for revision. They jog your memory and the very act of writing things down helps you process the information. Making good notes is skill in itself - just pick out important/key points and don't waste time writing loads of irrelevant rubbish. Learning how to write decent notes will not only help you at GCSE but is an essential skill for further studies. You will absolutely need to make notes for A-Levels and degrees.
