So i feel like i need to change up my revision style because i usually do condensed notes on A4 lined paper however its getting to that point where my brain just doesn't seem to want to remember the my notes in that format. However, i'm not too sure if flashcards are effective and can be a sole source for revision notes. Also i do find it difficult to read over my revision notes as there are quite a lot of pages to read over and i don't really get a chance to look over them too often. So i'm trying to find out whats the best way to revise chemistry. (Specifically A2 CHEMISTRY)

All advice and comments are appreciated

There's no harm in trying to see if flashcards work for you
For me personally, flashcards don't work as I spend more time making them than actually studying from them.
A common technique that people use with flashcards is the spaced-repetition technique, so try this out as it helps to consolidate long-term memory

Yeah, that where i feel i'm sort of lacking in. Its the fact that i'm not re consolidating my notes and going over and over them to commit it to long term memory. By the time its exam season, it feels like it did not click as well as i hoped to for long term memory (This is for my technique)

The more often you go over notes, the less you'll have to do this over time as it will be established in your memory with enough practice.

That's why i feel that flashcards would be easier to go over rather than pages of notes. Thank you for the advice!

This is the reason why im starting to incorporate flashcards into my revision. As it will provide an excellent resource to study the content repeatedly instead of just handwritten notes on A4 paper that I'll probably never read at all.

Of course. But ensure you learn the content before doing practise questions. That way, you'll be testing your knowledge
