    Whats the best way to revise? I currently just rewrite notes from revision guides and textbooks but I don't think its substantial especially English language as I somehow struggle with the narrative and transactional writing please help

    Maths - Past Papers, then going over what you struggled with. The things you struggled with, read over revision textbooks and do questions.
    English Lit. - A little harder, go online and look for quotes. Have a handful fo quotes for each character/theme.
    English Lang. - Easiest one to revise for, in my opinion. Read over past descriptive writing, learn vocabulary. Simple as that!

    Overall, the best way to revise is repetition, and questions! Reading over notes can help to learn content, but only if you do questions afterwards!
    That's the reason we have mocks! Questions on a regular basis help!

    I like to condense textbook topics onto flashcards, writing in my own words. I then, after a few months of revising, put what i still don't know onto a mind map. I'm all about condensing- it makes the work so much less overwhelming!
