use your exam board specification and revise alongside it. It contains all the knowledge you need for your exams so if there's something that isn't on there but is in your textbook i wouldn't bother learning it. Your revision notes need to be concise and straight to the point. Another obvious tip is using past papers once you've revised a topic and then making note of everything you got incorrect. You can then transfer the mark scheme answer for the qs u got wrong onto a flashcard or a document etc. another tip is 'blurting' so this is just you picking a topic and writing everything you can remember on a piece of paper and then cross checking after w your notes/cards to see how much you covered and wht you missed. If you have trouble staying focused, you can use the pomodoro technique so you can split your sessions into 25 minute bursts followed by a 5 minute break.
Hey thank you so much for the tips. A question about the specification, the topic I'm currently revising now is Topic 1, which contains two practical's : More on enzyme , and osmosis and I've seen that many pasts papers talk about the independent, control and dependent , however it is not stated to learn or know about the variables in the specification. Many thanks

I know some of it's quite vague and not very explicit but i'm pretty certain that most, if not all, exam boards expect students to have some knowledge of the different variables.
