    So I started taking my AS levels very seriously after disastrous GCSE results day, I have been writing PAGES of stuff to get all of that material stuck in my head but I found it very annoying today that when I was asked a question about something I revised in Biology today I was somehow unable to answer mainly because I KIND of remembered the material but couldn't get all the words or sentences right, it just annoys me that I am that dumb to forget stuff no matter how much time I put in to revise it, how can I stop forgetting material that I have already revised?

    Try revising a smaller section for a longer time. This means that that you will be able to remember this smaller topic in detail rather than revising loads and forgetting it. Every time that you have 'mastered' the small section you can move on to the next one.

    Also, try different techniques such as videos, mind-maps, flashcards etc. You may find it easier to revise from these techniques rather than copying out notes.

    Hope this helps.
