Does anyone have any suggestions on how to revise that isn’t flash cards? That’s what I’ve always used and I’ve realised I spend more time making them than actually studying them making it a waste of time.

Have you tried Mind maps ? One thing that is always beneficial for some new revision methods (not prosice but ones In general) is Pinterest but just make sure you don’t start looking on there when revising because I promise you it is the worst kind of procrastination

Hope this helps what are you studing for i might be able to give some better and more accurate adivice

I just do exam questions as for me, its the best way of me improving my grades. You need to try things and see what's best for you.

Maybe they don't but if you want the best grades, it's what you need to do. Also if they are interested in furthering education, you really need to get your revision techniques perfect before the hard stuff starts coming in.

Past papers to practice applying knowledge and exam technique
Blurting - this is writing down all the info you know about a subject and allows you to see gaps in our knowledge
Hope this helps

For triple science GCSE last year I got full marks in each paper and all I did was past papers. Didn't waste my time on writing out notes and flashcards, just practice paper after practice paper. Get familiar with questions that reappear a lot, and I'd also recommend learning model answers for all different process in Biology and those 3/4 markers that come up in Chemistry. Good luck

Omg wow I do triple science as well and I’m predicted 7/8 in all of the three sciences so I need to pretty much get near to full marks if I want an 8. This is really helpful and thanks for the good luck 😊 x
