For me the best way to revise is to make notes on everything needed (mainly used for sciences). Then I rewrite all the notes again on a word document. Seemed to work because I got 9 in chemistry and physics, and 8 in biology.
For maths, I just do loads of past papers and go through questions in the textbooks
For history, just make notes on each topic. I use a "RAG" form, so I know which topics I am the weakest at.
Business, I did my notes and just read through them loads
I got 9 in RE gcse by planning questions that could possibly come up.
I take German, but most people at my school is Memrise, Kerboodle and Vocab Express, which seemed to work for all of us

Any specific tips for physics, especially electromagnetism and waves? I'm assuming you do triple science. For English language, how do you revise (Question 5)?
Well done on those amazing grades!

Additonally, for the required practicals, do you read the notes? or do you practice application questions?

For physics I asked my for loads of past papers. For us the grade boundaries were really low. My friend only got 46% which was a 6. For the required practicals, we were given AQA books that focus on them. They were really helpful as the questions were similar to the actual test. Electromagnetism will probably come up, cos I asked around other schools and they all had it. I just learned all the definitions my heart and it worked for me.
