Hello, I am a resit student. I achieved ABB in my first sitting for maths, chemistry and physics respectively. I was wondering how I could revise without remaking the notes from textbook. If there was any effective methods of revising quickly because I feel like I know the content, just need reminding of it.

I was thinking of printing/making posters and sticking it around my room/table and then I'd be able to glance at the topics I need reminding, whilst attempting all the past papers and practice questions etc and hopefully it works out

My subjects are the complete opposite of yours (I'm all about that social sciences/humanities life!), but the most effective way for me to revise is social association. The simple version of this is making super brief mindmaps (NOT spider diagrams!!) for each topic (each map takes me 10-20 mins) and then revising them while pointing at their location. In the exam, or when I'm doing practice papers, I then think back to each mindmap and mentally point to the section I need.
The other method I use is similar, except I just associate a topic with an object. For politics, I could do this with socialism and a car. The 5 thinkers are each a wheel (one has to be the spare in the boot, oops), and the origin of conservatism would be the fuel tank, and the different types of the movement would be different gears. Then in the exam I'll think of the car and think of the stuff that I associated with each part of the object, in this case a car, and recall the knowledge. You can do it with literally any object that has enough components: toilet, chair, PS3 controller, desk. It really does the trick for me.
Best of luck with your revision and I hope I have helped just a tiny bit!
