Hi, so it's been a month since I have started A-levels, and because I have finished all my mini assessments I want to review my work frequently so I won't forget it. Reading over my notes feels counterproductive to me as I am not really concentrating. Does anyone know how to effectively review my past notes so I won't forget it?

The two things that got me through my first year: Flashcards and Past Papers.
Use your notes to make flashcards, questions on one side and answers on the other. You review notes while making and can constantly go over them throughout the year. I had flashcards for every topic which I'm using this year too.
Past papers are so important. Do some with your notes to begin with to consolidate your knowledge but try to do most of them timed and without notes. The key to exam technique is knowing exactly what they went you to say and how they want you to structure it. This is the only real way to know what you need to go over too. If you can't do a question, go over the notes for it.
Those are the key things I did and it worked out well for me! Hope I helped and if you have any more questions just ask.
