    Guys I need some tips on different ways of revising and what has helped you, I did really bad in my mocks so I want to change the way I revise and see what works best for me, I am going to push myself and work really hard to ensure that I get a 7 or 8 in all my subjects

    First of all, how do you learn? Do you learn better if you rewrite your notes lots of time? Does it help to make flashcards? Maybe you could use websites like Memrise or Quizlet for equations and vocabulary you need to learn. What exam board are you using for each subject? Find this out, go onto their websites and find some practise papers to do. Maybe you could write songs, or get a music-y friend to write them for/with you. Drawing diagrams for everything is good if you’re a visual learner. Or, if you prefer wordy stuff, write short stories/one-liners to remember stuff.
