    Basically, practice questions! That is by far the best way. Just reading notes or highlighting won`t help as much.
    There are a few good resources online with loads of questions for free! Seneca Learning is one of them and Quizlet is another one. You can also download past papers.

    Also try to plan your study time ahead. Come up with a timetable and stick to it. Plan how long you will be focusing on each subject each day. Remember that it`s better to do small chunks spread out over time than to do it all at once.

    Creating your own mind maps and diagrams is effective. Flashcards are effective as long as you really think hard before looking at the answer.

    There are a few blogs written by scientists that explain the best way to revise. These are very good ones:
    Strengthening the student toolkit, by Dulonsky
    The best way to revise according to neuroscience, by Seneca
    What are the best ways to revise, by InnerDrive

    Hope that helps and good luck! you`ll do great!
