When it comes to revision with physical resources, it's best to create mind maps, flashcards, read textbooks, answer exam questions from guides, etc.
I personally am a proponent for internet resource based revision - websites such as physicsandmathstutor, cognitoresources, senecalearning, have all got phenomenal compendiums of past paper questions, flashcards, and many more revision resources.
In essence, what it boils down to is what you find works best for you, a one-size-fits-all approach doesn't work for revising.

Hi there,

I am currently a student at Portsmouth University.

I would say the best methods of revising and studying will depend on the type of subject you're taking. I studied maths, physics, and design engineering for A-levels. I found the best method for me was to just do as many practice papers and questions as I could, to become familiar with applying the knowledge to how the exam board would ask for it, particularly for maths and physics. For definitions, I created short cards on each that I would flick through to help learn these.
These methods are great for these subjects, it may differ for essay based subjects however.
I hope this helps.
