I'm in year 10 at the moment and I am wandering what are the best ways of reviseing. What methords did everyone use? What equipment/stationary did you use? None one at school revises for there exams so I thought it would be better asking on here rather than at school.

If your school likes to miss out content from the course, like mine, then make sure you look at the spec for each course online, get hold of the relevant textbooks and make sure you have all the information you need (else you literally won't know some of the course!).
In terms of revision, if you start now you will feel so much better in Y11. So, after each lesson/topic, condense all your content into bullet points/mindmaps with diagrams where relevant. Now I'm in Y11 I am making bullet points on the computer because I left it late and now need to get it done ASAP, you have more time to choose how you want to do it. But *make condensed notes of it all*, on flashcards if you like, then every so often go over all your content on a rotation and test yourself on it. Some subjects (science) are better as if you understand it you'll be ok ish, but with history/geography etc there's just tonnes of content so you just have to put it in your head somehow

Firstly, yes people at your school do revise they probably just do it at home so people don't see them doing it.
I personally loved making notes. Rewriting notes over and over again, gradually condensing them was a great way to get me to remember case studies and processes. I also made a lot of mind maps. My living room walls became covered in posters everywhere. I also stuck little index cards on cupboard doors in the kitchen I would read whilst cooking.
I got my parents involved too and made quizzes for them to test me on and also used flash cards - one side had the question the other had the answer.
Practice papers were also really good. I either marked them myself or got my teachers to mark them for me (especially for bigger questions with more marks).
