    Came across this blog on the best revision techniques, which seemed pretty convincing: https://goo.gl/okYdVx

    Are these the best ways of revising (for people who can't be bothered to read it- it recommends testing, spacing and maximising use of images/ imagination)? Or are there other things I should also be doing?

    I didn't read the link.
    Honestly, if you are a GCSE student this is so worrying that you don't know how to revise. But here I am, wasting my time on this thread.

    Revise now. Revise in time periods that suit you best. Revise a combination of subjects a day. Revise various methods that you find are productive (some hate flash cards, some love). In order to memorise better, summarise notes, flashcards and linking pictures towards things.

    Don't just go over notes. Do as many past paper questions as you can. Learn exam technique. Don't overdo yourself.

    Thanks! This is similar to what they say on the blog, but reassuring to hear it reiterated. Guess it's what I should get on with doing...
