Heyo
I kinda dropped GCSE RS but I'm taking it a level and am the ambassador - I use the following tricks BC I'm lazy:
1) when revising I just briefly understand the concepts
- then use flashcards and mind maps for key words - especially with something like Buddhism
2) you can also incorporate a few quotes into the mind map and other revision - but not too many as it'll be harder to remember and you may cause yourself to forget something you actually need.
3) examples are your friend, provide a good enough example to prove your point and it may count as evidence
4) when in the exam try to define as many key terms as possible as they are a cheeky way of getting some free marks

- hopes this helps <3

I got Grade 9 in my GCSE, with overall 92%.
I barely revised because knowing all the content and using exam technique is the key. I'm not sure which exam board you do, but ask your teacher for the proper exam technique- there are common structures to use. I learnt quotes mainly, using quizlet:
1. Type in half the quote as the prompt, and the whole quote as the answer.
2. Then use the 'writing' revision technique.
I learnt all quotes using that, then make a few mindmaps on the specific topics and have a go at planning the longer answers.
This helps loads!

do lots of exam practice especially for the long mark questions and regularly revise key quotes. flashcards are good for summarising key facts. i presume a lack of knowledge of content and exam technique is what got you the low grade.
