      The same thing definitely doesn’t work for everyone and it took me quite a while to figure out what works best for me. For me I used to team up with a friend or group of friends and we’d each make a mind map on different topics we needed to revise. We would then meet up and explain them to one another. For me explaining something to someone else really helps me understand it fully and remember it and also it’s a bit more enjoyable to study with pals!

      I took really detailed notes during class (if you don’t usually do this, you probably have a classmate who does!) – I spent the week before an exam re-reading these and trying to actually understand them, to put them in some sort of logical order in my mind by constructing some sort of narrative/story. This meant that it was easier for met to recall individual details as I started thinking about this narrative during the exam!

      But as Hannah said, one approach doesn’t fit everyone so you might find something entirely different to be useful for you!
