Revision tips

Hey I’m currently for my revising my year 9 end of year exams. I’ve already started my GCSEs course this year for sciences and maths and Spanish. I tend to struggle with revising and I usually need a lot of practice. My exams are in around 3 weeks, and I’m struggling to get everything done. Does anyone have any helpful revision tips that can help me revise topics I struggle in, particularly biology chemistry physics computer science? Is there a particular way to revise for each subject?
I would really appreciate if any replies were quite in depth about any methods you recommend.

Thanks a lot!
im also in the same situation and we just started are gcse science course lastweek.i would reccomend focusing on subjects your not good at and ones you struggle with.also if you have some of you old tests from tjis year.i would write down those questions and focus on them.
i just finished my year 9 end of years, and i think the best thing to do would be to write out flashcards for each key topic OR try blurting. It's where you take a piece of paper and write down everything that you know about a particular topic and once your done, you check through your note to see if you've covered everything. This helps you check which areas you're weaker in and which bits you need to revise. Write down what you've forgotten in a different colour, so they stand out more. I know this method works really well for the sciences, but idk about computer science because a) we dont have that for end of years b) i suck at it and c) im dropping it after this year anyway so i dont really care if i fail. But i think the blurting method should work. For maths, all you can really do is lots and lots of practice papers and questions, especially on topics you definitely don't know. For spanish, i can remember everything I learnt without revising, but you may want to try conjugating different verbs to get the hang of conjugating or find translation papers online. anyway this was a bit of rant, but i really hope this helped!!
