I was just wondering what kind of process everyone goes through when it comes to studying? As in collecting notes throughout the year, not just exam season?

Personally, i get a good solid set of detailed notes, condense them down a few times until they’re flash cards, then use them to make posters, answer practice questions, quizzes/question cards, brainstorms and adding what i don’t know etc etc.

What do you all do?

Read notes online or from spec, then do a question. If I’m a bit lazier I do the question without revising nor do I mark it but any revision is revision.

I usually write flashcards&test myself on them, and also write a lot of essay plans and then write them.

Review past papers to get an idea of the likelihood of the questions that are going to come up, then script particularly detailed answers to those that seem most likely along with some essay starters for those that aren't. Read, reread, and memorize until I can practically regurgitate them on command. I also run my notes through a text to speech app and have my answers playing back to me overnight in the run up to the exam(s).

I make spider diagrams in different colours, it helps me pile it a down into simpler chunks for me to understand. I also go through tons of past papers.

That text to speech sounds like a really good idea. Do you find it helps?

For history I made A3 posters about each topic and then tested myself on them, seeing how much I could remember.

For biology and chemistry I bought an A3 whiteboard and go through the spec one topic at a time with the textbooks and notes made throughout the year, making notes on important bits from memory and revising each part of the spec, and then do past paper questions at the end of each topic.

It wouldn't be the only thing I do, but I do find I read through my answers a little more quickly in the earliest stages of memorizing them after I've spent an entire night listening to the audio on constant loop in my sleep. Definitely helpful.
