I'm currently studying for my GCSEs and I want to know what revision methods either helped you or are helping you.
The methods I use are; mind maps, apps, PowerPoints, past papers, websites, notebooks and notecards. Any more suggestions?

I think testing is the most important method . By being tested, you can actually see what you understand or not, and) what you remember. There are some good sites for that - Seneca ( https://app.senecalearning.com/ ) does testing integrated with the teaching, and quizlet (https://quizlet.com/en-gb) has just the tests on it.
The rest of your methods sound good though. one more thing it may be worth trying is youtube tutorials. I find them more interactive than text books / revision guides etc and so understand and remember the content better.

practice answering questions as much as you can, like doing past papers. That is scientifically proven to be the best method. It also really helps to have a timetable to plan when to revise which subject. Don`t do them all at once. Mind maps are good! and basically anything that you can use both words and images or drawings.
I came across two articles that explain the best methods. You can find them on google.
one is called "what is the best way to revise?" by Seneca - this is also a good free revision website!
and the other is called "strengthening the student toolbox" by Dulonsky
hope that helps and good luck!
