my best subjects were biology, chemistry and English literature (I got the top grades) so I’ll give my advice on how I revised for those coming up the exam.
Biology: first have flash cards for every topic with short questions on one side and answers on the other and go through these regularly. Then do past papers, paying attention to mark schemes to see what the examiner wants- sometimes questions are repeated!

English lit: make flash cards on every topic/theme/character from the text with quotes. Then practice writing essays for each of these so you’ve already got all the ideas and points in your head to just write in the exam.

Chemistry: PRACTICE QUESTIONS. Just do loads and loads of past paper questions.

Hi Anon,

Although you're on a time crunch, it's still worth trying your hardest and making the most of the time you have left. Here are some effective tips I have that should hopefully help you before your exams:

1) Blurting: After I read any notes I've made in the past, I would try to read through it, memorise as much of it as I can and attempt the blurting method. I found that blurting really helped engrain the content into my head and allowed me to memorise it much quicker. You can read up more on blurting here: https://bit.ly/3uCzvZl

2) Topical questions: after a few rounds of blurting, I would search up topical questions for the topics I had just revised and studied. This was to familiarise and prepare myself for the types and format of questions I can expect in the exam. To be honest, this was also an ego boost- because after attempting the questions and getting them right I would feel so satisfied and motivated to keep revising and move on to the next topic or subject. It felt really rewarding.

Hope this helps,
Danish
