I understand that Revision is important for getting the grades you want? if that’s what you mean, i also understand that you need to work hard in terms of revision in order to get the grades you want but i feel like i need to change my methods slightly.

i’m hopefully aiming for an A in Biology and Psychology and a A* in History if i can. (currently working at AAB - B in Biology)

Right now, I revise by writing out spec points, making flashcards and answering past paper questions (or essays in History) but i feel like this isn’t working anymore/i need other ways of revising. I also usually get my parents to test me (aka. they read out the spec point and i tell them everything i know about that particular spec point lmao)

I know that some people have recently mentioned the whiteboard method (similar to the flashcard method but writing answers on a whiteboard instead- colours etc. as it stimulates the brain) but i’m unsure.
