I was watching a few YouTube videos and a lot of people seem to recommend making notes on the specification. I'm a little unsure on how it would be useful? and what exactly to make notes on? (Context: I'm planning to resit for Autumn A Levels and I do English Literature, Maths and Business!)

I personally wouldn’t. I only ever used the specification when I was done revising from the textbook and it was more of a tick box exercise.

For business, I turned each bullet point of the specification into a question or series of questions on quizlet then used the textbook and class notes to find the answers. Our business teachers called this the bullet point approach and emphasised heavily using the specification so I would definitely recommend this.
Hope this makes sense

Print out the specification (make sure it’s the correct version) and read it. Tick areas you have sufficient notes on and understand well. Areas you are unsure of or don’t remember doing in class are the areas you need to specifically focus on. Make sure that by the end of your revision you can confidently look at each part of the spec and recall from memory key aspects of what it’s asking for. By the end of your revision everything should be ticked off! You can test whether you understand a spec point by trying to jot down a few key words/ideas as if that subtopic was an exam question. Use your class notes, textbook and spec in combination to ensure you have succinct notes which cover everything you need to know on the syllabus. Hope this helps, good luck!
