You get high grades by memorising and understanding the content, and then looking for gaps in your knowledge by doing exam questions. Past papers are good to do as they replicate the real exam, but doing questions-by-topic on sites like Physics&MathsTutor will help you to be thorough with each topic if you learn from the mistakes you make on each question.

Flashcards are useful to help you memorise the content if you use the active recall technique with them. But make sure you don't spend too long making the flashcards as this will be counter productive.

I have practice paper books by topic so that will work!

What do you mean by use the active recall technique with them?

Could you please explain how to use active recall with flash cards

So basically don’t take notes just test yourself. Would quizlet be good for this. I was making these a couple of hours ago Name:  B6A3CE99-EBDA-4322-8BE4-CD2926A0231E.jpg.jpeg

Quizlet is very useful You can probably find pre-made notes on there which will save you time instead of having to make them from scratch.
