The best revision method depends on your preferences and what type of learner you are. If you're a visual learner, organise your notes using colourful mind maps and use pictures; if you're an auditory learner, watch videos and listen to podcasts on your subjects. The most important thing is to put effort in. The grades you get at the end of all this isn't as important as making sure that you have no regrets - if you've done everything you can, your grades should just be there to prove that.

I got 8 9s, 2 8s and a 6. Granted its not straight 9s, but its still top 0.05% in the country.

yxyxng is right. I'm very much a rote learner, so going through things a few times and then doing a few questions is more than enough for me. I do the complete opposite of what is recommended - write my notes/flashcards in too much detail, repeating the important stuff a few times. That way I definitely remember the core information and maybe remember some extra. This method probably won't work for anyone else though lol, so do what works for you. And do lots of practice qs - particularly for the sciences, maths etc. They definitely helped on the handful of topics I struggled with.

Also, to be honest the best way to get straight 9s is also to stop aiming for them. I know this might sound weird, but the chances of you getting straight 9s are about 1 in 100,000, and its undue pressure on yourself for something that literally won't matter once you start your degree.
