Depends what subject you are doing
I find flashcards can work really well also recording me reading my notes and do lots of past paper questions can help as well.
It really just depends on the style of learning that suits you best

Exam practice is extremely useful (of course with knowing the content)

I like to make mind maps. Doing past papers is good too.

For Sicences I purely make notes and just absorb the information as my brain finds it easy to pick out the main points then do past papers identify my area of weakness then write notes to myself to what I should remember for next time, For English Mindmaps, For Maths I pick up my revision textbook practicing each topic everyday so I dont forget, For RE I just flick through my CGP revision guide and then do the questions it has.

Thats it basically depends on the topic.

For memorising processes and other things that have an order or a series of little things, use flashcards. They're also good for English. Subjects like RE have lots of links so mind maps are good for those. For literally anything else, I use condensed notes to memorise key things and then test myself with questions or by getting someone to listen to me talk to them about it.

1. Read a whole topic from a textbook once just to UNDERSTAND it first.
2. Once you understand it, go over it again and make notes on a separate piece of lined paper.
3. Read your own notes after finishing, to make sure they make sense.
4. Before going to bed, read all your notes, and then sleep. Do it everynight for a week, then gradually decrease it until you get to once a week. You could also makes smaller notes from your own notes if you don't have time to read the entire thing everytime. You will never foget it hopefully!
Do a few past papers too, there's no point underatand the topic if you can't apply it.

I'm gonna do this from now on PROPERLY lol :lol:

This is more for Alevels btw, or for subjects that need alot of memorising.
