Same I sometimes use flash cards or mind maps summarised

Here are some suggestions for how I revise:
You could either put questions on one side and answers on the other, or you could put vocabulary on one side and its meaning on the other for subjects such as French or Spanish. For French, I make concise notes for certain mini-topics (such as Direct Object Pronouns or Future tense) on a flashcard, so I can look over them before a test and refresh my memory.
- Making songs
I find it useful to create new lyrics to tunes of songs which I like and will remember - for example, I rewrote the lyrics to 'Jailhouse Rock' by Elvis Presley to allow me to remember some uses of monoclonal antibodies. This method will help you get information stuck in your head with the tune, allowing you to remember your information easily - so long as you don't burst out singing in the middle of an exam!
- Past paper questions
I find this method particularly useful for Maths and Science. You can search online for past paper questions from exams and then find the answers, checking your recall and making sure that you know your topic well.
I like to watch Youtube videos on the topics that I will be tested on. I would recommend the Youtube channel 'freesciencelessons', especially for Physics revision. This is because Youtube channels often present the information concisely and to the point, covering a subject in four minutes instead of in an hour.
My biggest piece of advice is to try different methods of revision and see what works best for you.
