Is it better to write the same thing over and over so it sticks in your brain? haha I heard that from someone before.
Hi, I personally found that I was using the excuse of watching videos as lazy revision. They are the kinda thing I do a 2 weeks / the night before the exam. This is only because I am a visual learner and like to see I have done work. Recently I have a new technique for revising. I create an A3 mindmap on the topic for example geography paper three topic 1, people and the biosphere. After I have created my mind maps I will put all my keywords into a quizlet, after this I will make flashcards with related questions to the topics and keep re-reading them. I have my posters on my walls in my bedroom as a revision specialist recommended it. I think if you try out different methods and find one that works for you! Good luck with your exams!
For example, I am a read/write learner so I revise by writing out my class notes again and then making flashcards from those notes and if I still feel unsure on a topic I will make it into a poster or a mini revision booklet which has only the key information so like a very condensed summary.
If you are an auditory learner then videos would be good for you as would be reading notes out loud or making recordings of you reading your notes to listen to later. If you're a visual learner: videos could also be good depending on the video (not just text displayed on the screen) making posters or mindmaps or anything similar also works well and if you're a kinesthetic learner try watching videos of experiments for science to see the practical side of it or try making a revision resource that can be interactive e.g. flashcards
