This probably isn’t very helpful, but I revise by rewriting and editing notes because writing it down helps me to remember it, but it’s time consuming so not good just before an exam. I also use flash cards to help me memorise stuff especially with Spanish, Quizlet is good for this.
Hope it helps!

What I did was take a learning test - one that decides if you're a kinesthetic, visual or auditory learner, I came out as a visual learner which means i'm more able to remember the notes when they're colourful or presented in a way that makes it more vibrant- While you should do the others regularly, e.g kinesthetic doing past exams papers (which helps a lot, do some and send them into your teacher) or even just watching youtube videos on the subject and trying to understand it. Use sites such as SenecaLearning for science and for flashcards use quizlet, they really help a ton! if you have any questions just ask

For revision I mainly do past questions by topic to identify my strengths and weaknesses. Looking at the mark schemes also teaches me how the
examiner wants the answer to be phrased.
For History I make a lot of mind maps to remember dates and events and terms of treaties etc. Timelines also help, as they allow me to visualise the procedure of events (which will also help you as you're a visual learner).
For Literature just go to websites like Shmoop and Sparknotes to brush up on the summary, themes, analysis.
Music brush up on your terms and listen to loads of pieces.
