Test, mark and retest. Before you do anything else, give yourself 2-3 minutes to blurt down everything you know about the subtopic you're studying. When time is up, use the textbook to add what you didn't get and improve what you got wrong. Make a Quizlet set of these things, learn the cards and then spend another 2-3 minutes writing everything. Mark it, go over what you didn't get and then have a short break.

Practice papers - make sure that you mark and improve your answers afterwards!

If there is a concept that you don't understand, try to explain it to someone (or just a pet rock or something!) In terms that they will understand. You will be forced to simplify the topic and thus will clarify it in your own mind.

will depend on the subject. subjects such as english and the humanities, do lots of essay practice and constantly hand these to your teacher for feedback. make sure, of course, you're learning the content too!! lots of ways you could learn this- flashcards, bullet point notes, mindmaps, posters... mocks are the best way to see if these revision techniques actually work:yep:
for big assessments you'll likely be expected to recall a lot more information so make sure your revision and knowledge is consolidated- do a little bit of revision each day, even if it's 10 minutes. quality > quantity. active revision, such as flashcards or a paper is better than passively reading from the textbook.
practice papers are great for maths, you can find these on mathsgenie, dr frost maths, corbettmaths, hegartymaths... topic papers are really good for practice on your weaker areas. it's good to be going back over these papers especially with the questions you struggled to answer just so you can understand how to approach these.
