    I always study topics in my subjects and then a few days or weeks later I can remember none of it

    Flash cards help me with this. I create different sets for different topics and flip through a set every day to keep it fresh in my mind, the more often you revise through them the more likely they will stick in your memory. Select a different topic each day, each topic for me takes about 15 minutes and repeat the topics as often as you can between now and exam time will help enormously. Some flash cards I have illustrations on as a visual reminder prompts me to remember more easily as opposed to just words. Any terminology or particular words I'm having difficulty remembering I put a sticky note on my computer screen so I see it every day, it's not long before I am easily remembering it. Good luck

    your revision needs to be meaningful. if you stare at the same words over and over again without putting any of your thought into it then most of it will go because it's meaningless to you.
