Hey guys, i have started revising for my GCSE’s and I think I want to use flashcards as the main way to learn the content. I have recently come across a program called ANKI which seems really good for flashcards but I’m not sure whether to use it or if quizlet or physical handwritten cards would be better. Any help would be appreciated

It is up to you I personally use quicker but write out their information on card, as I find it helps me learn better and quicker. Sometimes writing out can help,but it might be time consuming depending on the amount of information. It is really up to how you learn. I hope this helps, good luck with your GCSEs.

Personally, I use quizlet. It's got pretty much everything I need. My only problem is having to print them out, since my phone is too old to have the app.

I'd suggest, if your phone allows it, to download the app and revise whenever you're bored or available, but only for about half an hour. Maybe do that four times a day on different subjects, but never all at once. Quizlet makes things kinda enjoyable - how dare I say such a thing about revision - so you might end up finding it easier to motivate yourself to revise, without the mammoth task of writing two years worth of course work out into tiny cards.

Hope this helps.

You can use flashcards, but i think the best way to revise is by doing loads of past papers, Trust me, they help with motivation, to reduce stress, make you know how to answer questions in the exam...

I love to use the app Brainscape because it allows you to categorise how confident you feel about your answer. I would recommend typing them because it offers a backup in case you lose your notes, and if you trust the note-taking style of others on your course you can collaborate to make the flashcards which can speed up an otherwise arduous (but worthwhile) process.
