    Hello. I genuinely don't know how to revise like I mean I've got the resources and stuff but I just don't know how to revise. Many people say flash cards and mindmaps by I don Know how to use them and stuff. Can someone please help me out here and explain the revision tools and how to use them. It's coming to year 11 and I'm gonna start revising as I have mocks in November. So it will be helpful if someone can explain which revision tool is the most effective and how to use them

    Hi, I am also in year 10.
    I would say that the best way to find out revision methods is to try them.
    Try as many as you can and eventually you will find out what works for you. I eventually have.
    If you would like, I can tell you what I do for a specific subject etc. Mayb that is useful. x

    This is soo long, sorry. I do have a gyg account, you might find it useful , including others to see how they revise
    Spoiler:

    Maths:-1. I learn the content via revision guides, videos etc
    2. I do questions specifically on the subject. (I don't own a maths workbook (well, i do now but it only for grade 9 so it s bit narrow) use questions available on the internet- mathsgenie , mr barton maths. Literally just search 'topic + gcse + answers' and you good.
    English literature: this is not my forte but i definitely have gotten better due to this.
    1. sparknotes, mr bruff, analysis from class, even your own analysis, revision guides, YouTube, document on the internet
    2. i make/am making a revision guide for each text. This takes a lott of time and effort but i'm sad so i do it anyway
    3.Then, I find an essay and mindmap the essay
    4. write the essay under time conditions but in less time given so that in the real exam i will have 10-15 minutes to plan
    5. year 11: go through all essay plans and memorise what to write for all topics and how to manipulate points for any essay topic
    English language:kind of a natural thing , i think.
    Science/geography: Used to make flashcards on QUIZLET or CHEGG Flashcards but now:
    1. make notes and learn new content via 'look cover write' idea.
    2. Workbook questions on topic to recap
    3. review every once in a while.
    4. Year 11- Past papers
    Langages:1. Memrise
    2. workbook on grammar
    3 flashcards to get good at tenses
    4. Really taking advantage of lessons -speaking , listening
