    Hello, first of all I'm sort of new to this, not entirely but i am new to the discussion side of TSR so excuse me lack of knowing what to do ahah. Anywayy I'm wondering if anyone can offer some tips and/or advice? I sit my first mock on November 13th (Maths and History(also known as my birthday sigh) and although i have started revising I worry that I'm not doing it right. I have the AQA collins combined science workbook, same as maths (also have corbettmaths cards and a booklet my maths teacher gave me of topics for grade 5(won't get grade 7 till finished)) and then loads of english workbooks but honestly I just worry it won't work. I simply can't do mindmaps because I wouldn't have a clue how to so that for language, i can for lit and i cant remember much of paper one for science, flash cards take ages and honestly i have no idea what to do. Can someone please offer any advice or what they did, even if it is mindmaps etc. Sorry to ramble

    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.

    Worked for me! (:
