    Hello, could anyone please suggest which revision techniques are the most effective because I used to re-write notes and that didn’t help me AT ALL and I usually just cram information into my head and complete the small questions at the end of the CPG books. The subjects that I do are: Triple Science, English, Maths, Religious Studies, Geography, History, French and Art.
    Many thanks!

    Re-writing notes is actually one of the worst ways of revising. And this is scientifically proven
    The best ways to memorise things are to answer as many questions as you can and do it over and over again.
    It's not enough to do it today and that's it. You have to do it again in a few days, and then again, and then again. Always answering questions!
    And it really helps to have a timeframe and a calendar to plan what you will study on each day. Cramming is bad. It`s better to do few hours every day than long hours on the last day

    Here are two blogs by scientists explaining how to do so:

    SenecaLearning is also a website full of questions, gifs, mind maps and videos. Worth trying because it's free

    Good luck!
