    I’m taking my GCSEs soon and would like to find some different and effective ways to revise. So how do you revise for your exams?

    Use the "scribble" method.
    1. Open your textbook or other learning material
    2. Read through one page thoroughly
    3. Close the book and scribble down everything you can remember
    4. Open the book and see what you forgot/got wrong
    5. Repeat

    If you build this up you should get to stage where you remember everything on the page.

    It worked for me!

    That’s a great idea I’m definitely going to try that out but what would you recommend for a subject like maths? It doesn’t seem like it would work for that.

    for maths one of the key ways to revise is to practise!
    you just need to find as many practise questions as possible and blitz through them, anything you don’t understand you should go over and practise and so on...

    there’s no other way around maths, it’s simply just practising, if you don’t get something there are also videos online that can walk you through it

    in terms of flashcards, you could use them for equations but there’s not really any other methods of revision for maths

    Watch free science lessons on youtube over and over again until you get the content and after you learn all the content do past papers.That's how I got 3A* for science.Never bothered with a textbook or revision guides.I would also make a poster for like e.g. Biology paper 1 and then go through the specification and write down everything I need to know using the specification, so in a way I was reviewing the information, putting it all in one place and then got my sister to test me.I did this poster method for every exam paper in science.

    Past papers!! Even if they’re from the old spec - just be aware that your real exams will be slightly different.
