    I have a GCSE exam in 2 weeks and I have only started revising now. I regret not starting my revision earlier as I have so much to learn and revise. I am not sure weather I will be able to remember all the information when I actually do the exam. I tried taking notes from sources that my teacher gave me, but I feel like I am just copying the information and making it harder for myself.
    Please give me advise on the methods
    of revision that I should be using. And how to remember all the information for the exam?
    Thx in advance😁

    If copying/writing notes aren’t helping you then you could watch YouTube videos on the content u need to learn and maybe by listening to it and looking at the way the videos present the topics it would benefit u more?

    Could also try listening to pod casts on GCSE Pod which are quick ways of all the topics being explained which would save time and u would end up covering more in such a short period

    Hope this helps, don’t stress!

    Do active revision instead of passive revision. This makes your work a lot more productive. For example, instead of copying out notes, do practice questions, test yourself with flash cards or try teach what your learning to a friend or family member.

    I'm late too, but I at least started for maths ages ago, and revised for one of my computer science papers a lot games ago and just remember a lot of it, and one of the physics a paper I just remember and know a lot of the stuff, but I'm still stuffed for the remainder of the papers and my French speking.
    Don't worry you'll make it but you gotta cram.

    Past papers m8. Trust me, they help the most.Practice and revision AND you get to know what the examiner wants from you.

    Yes, no one really knows what they want so yes practice papers are very helpful, actual past papers won't be that useful even for RS because the things they might want you to include might not be the same, and even how they give out the marks and how much marks for certain questions. If examiner reports are available it still might be good to look at to see what top level candidates included and what to avoid, but I doubt they will be available much though.

    I would say to read the context of the exam and revise the topics that you really find difficult.
