Try different revision methods (as much as you can) until you find the perfect one tailored for each subject. (e.g. mindmaps, re-writing notes in your own understanding, flashcards, etc...)
Then, maximise your time and revise/memorise the information taken using the technique that suits the subject best. After a few days, apply the same information to a past paper or practice questions. If there's anything you don't understand/know re-review it and keep applying the same technique until all info is memorised.

I wish you all the best and good luck! :smile:

Hi there,

Having a strong revision timetable and sticking to it is always helpful. I would often review the same days work at the end of a college day so that I can recap things each day to make sure I understand the topic. I would often set aside about 15 minutes a subject to review each day, this would give me insights into what I need to brush up on and then I can look at creating a resource like flashcards or mind-maps to help the information stick. This way you're more immersed in your learning and can make better decisions as to where your focus should be.

Then I would look at doing some past papers on the subject you're finding most challenging. Looking at exam questions is always useful as the exams draw closer. You can also lean on your teachers for support with resources/past papers.

Good luck with your studies!
