hi, i did different a levels so i'm sorry i can't be of much help in RS but i think some revision techniques apply to all subjects pretty much... i'd say read your notes/the textbook, then cover the page up and try to recall what you can remember from the info you have. don't put pressure on yourself to remember every tiny word, it's not possible! be kind to yourself and just try to remember what you read, then look to see what you've missed and try to relearn that bit in particular. once you think you've got the content a bit better, just try doing exam questions and look at the markschemes to see the kind of things you should be talking about. i'm assuming there are essays in RS so look at the time you have to write 1 essay in an exam and try doing an exam-style essay question in that time you have given - making sure you plan out your time properly for any essay subject is really useful, and kind of tweak it as appropriate e.g. if you try to do one with spending 10mins for the intro and you find you don't have enough time, next time do the intro in 15minutes and kind of see how it goes. you might know this stuff already so i'm not sure how helpful this is but i hope it helps in some way! good luck for your exams and try to be kind to yourself/not put too much pressure!

Hiii i do the same exam board as you, what i do is learn content thru flash cards / key words / mindmaps then i plan a question without notes to see if i know the content / can answer the Q. then me and some friends from my class swap plans to mark and help us

i think my teacher wrote it herself, coz we did it all in one paper to practice writing for 2 hours, so it was a mix of ethics, christian thought and philosophy
