    What's the best way to actually revise and remember what you learnt
    Especially how rivers , meanders , ox-bow lakes etc are formed and the different types of Erosion and being able to describe each one of them

    Diagrams can be really useful to visualise how different landforms develop over time. To remember different processes, I like to write out the definitions of each in turn until I remember the differences between them. The names of each process can give hints about what they are as well, for example solution is where soluble particles are dissolved and removed in the river water, and abrasion is where rock fragments being transported scrape against the river bed and banks, eroding them over time (just like sandpaper is used as an abrasive material)

    Personally when studying for my N5 Exam I just answered question after question but that was for Coastal not Rivers
