What might not work for you, might work for someone else.

But scientifically, it actually isn’t very efficient. It’s actually the least effective way to revise.

I think you need to search what works for you, we are habituated in rewriting notes and highlighting by our teachers, but they don’t actually expose you to the variety of revision methods available.

- cue cards (trigger words/phrases for active recall)
- making presentations and acting as if you're teaching someone else
- past papers are useful in knowing what you need to work more on and what you're fine with - also helps with time management
- go over your notes before sleeping, as the brain processes information better while sleeping so if its well revised it'll be easier to recall
- mnemonics

I practiced every single past paper I could get my hands on, and quite often redoing the same papers several times over the course of the year(s). I memorised the answers to the most common questions.
