Are there any effective revision methods other than mindmaps and flash cards? I have difficulty remembering information.

Have you tried songs? They can be tedious to make but once you’ve done it it’s a really easy way to remember the information.
Acronyms are also a really great way of remembering processes, orders etc.
There’s also assigning things you want to remember to objects. For example if you need to remember the different parts of a cell, it might be helpful to assign each piece of furniture in your room a part and function. Perhaps your bed could be the nucleus as it is the main part of a BEDroom. Relating what you need to remember to your life in a practical way is probably the easiest type of revision.
If there’s one key peice of information something I do which ensures I remember it, is writing it on my head, then going to sleep with it on, and wiping it off in the morning. So if I want to remember that the first group monasteries were closed in 1536 I’d write ‘Monasteries 1536’ big and bold on my forehead and I can assure you that I won’t forget. (I got this from my Grandma who always says that if you need to wake up at 6:00 write it on your head and you’ll wake up at 6:00)
Hope this helps 😊

Cornell note taking.
And do not revise on the day of exams, new information will push out what you have memorised.
