    Hi, so I'm in year 11 and am aiming for medicine so need good results. I want to start revising however I don't know HOW. There's so many strategies/techniques and I don't know where to start. I also have quite a few extra curriculars, so I'll have to fit revision around those too. I think I'll struggle balancing all my subjects, because I'm not very organised. Also need some anti-procrastination tips

    The subjects I do are English Language, English Literature, Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Geography, Religious Studies and French if anyone has any specific tips.

    I appreciate any replies

    As for anti-procrastination tips, I can't help you😂 considering that I left all my revision except for french vocab until the night before or the morning of the exam:/
    For French, I'd suggest finding the exam board's core vocabulary list (I'm sure if every board does this, I know CCEA does) and learn a section each week as it really lightens the revision load by May/June! For maths past papers are probably what worked most for me, aswell as reading through my class work book to recap on methods and things like that which is forgotten within 1.5 years. But for basically every other subject, I just did the odd past paper question and then looked through the textbook and my notes again. I also heard that sleeping right after revision helps you remember what you learned!!
    Good luck!!😊
