Having a bit of a crisis deciding how to go about my revision.... watch

    • Thread Starter

    So I guess I kind of hit the floor running with my revision plans, and I've completed all of my notes for Economics and Computer Science. But now that I've gotten to Bio/Chem/Physics, I'm not sure how to really go about it. When I try to make notes and type them up, i just end up typing up the entire book and its definitely not very efficient. I start to get stressed out and I'm not really sure how to approach this beast.

    I have the CGP work books and revision guides for my 9-1 sciences, but will doing just that + past papers really give me a chance to get an 8 or 9??

    I'm feeling a bit paranoid..... Could anyone help me out with revision techniques?

    For Science I typically write all of the info on flashcards. Look at the specification and then just out all the info you need on the cards.

    testing is about 10x more important than the notes. I find it good to go through the revision book / maybe make some notes, do some testing and then see what areas I struggle with understanding of / remembering. And then make more detailed and better notes on these sections..
