What are the best revision techniques for GCSE’s? What I usually do is write out entire pages from textbooks but this is time consuming and I get through only a few topics.

Active recall (testing) and spaced repetition (going over a topic again after a certain period of time has passed)

No. When I attempt to summarise it’s like I’m missing out key information.

"No. When I attempt to summarise it’s like I’m missing out key information." Or perhaps...

Summarizing omits key information.

It;s a practice thing.

Do an internet search for précis techniques and tutorials and start practising. This will also help you prepare good flash cards and sharpen your memory skills, especially retention. Integrate this into your study timetable and highlight it in your goals and management section.

It's a study skill and deserves a section in your notes as indeed does memory and coping with stress. Cover the subject in general and then highlight the approaches that work for you (which you will work out from your self-testing and review}.

Good Luck
