1) Use various types of revision media including apps, websites and YouTube videos e.g. Mr Bruff on YouTube for English, Maths Genie for maths and Duolingo for Spanish. Quizlet can be useful for learning facts for geography case studies
2) Do every single past paper, especially for science, since questions and mark schemes are often repeated (but only do this after you have learned all of the GCSE content in order for it to be effective)
3) Put in a lot of time (start early)
4) Posters: GCSE is a lot about memorising content
5) Mind palace for things that are hard to remember (case studies)
6) Skim read the entire revision guide the day before an exam to check that you have covered everything

How I went from B's at the start of year 11 to A* at the end:
Spanish: Duolingo (app), Memrise (app), Memorise complex phrases to use in writing
Physics: Pretty sure I rewrote the entire revision guide, and then did past papers
English: Mr Bruff, print out extracts from your books and use his videos to annotate them, also read his sample essays
