I had problems in my mock exams due to me not revising enough so has anyone got any tips for revision that will make it tolerable and efficient, as most the revision I do at the moment is reading through my notes and watching youtube videos.

Reading through notes is the most ineffective revision strategy you could use. It achieves pretty much nothing.

You need to use the information you have, to assess what you can remember/understand and what you don't. Pick a topic, any topic. Take a sheet of paper and write down a summary of what you know about it - as if you were going to teach a fellow classmate about it. Take your time doing this - try your hardest. Then compare it to your notes - how accurate is it? What's missing/misunderstood?

Once you find the gaps in your knowledge, you can set about plugging them.
