hey im not sure what ur studying but ive finished my gcses and got 10 9s so hopefully this is useful. my biggest tip would be exam questions. there’s so many ways to use them. for example, doing under timed conditions. then do them without notes then go back in a diff colour using ur notes to help u. mark schemes will be the biggest help as so many questions are repeated (well similar qs tend to crop up in nearly every paper) and the mark schemes are the same. learn them!!! as for learning the content in the first place, id say try to do active recall, not just reading books. like write down or “splurge” all ur knowledge of a topic onto a piece of paper, then use all ur notes etc to go through and add in w a diff colour what u didn’t know. then before the exam u can just read through the stuff in colour u didn’t know! hope this helps! feel free to ask any subject specific questions too

exam practice is important for all subjects so do as much as you can :yep: little and often is best, don't overwork yourself as you don't want to burn out. set some time aside each day to focus on revision. i really recommend the app adapt if you're struggling to organise your revision, it does all the work for you in terms of organisation
