How do you revise

I usually create a bubble with a certain topic inside it. Then I have lines coming out at all angles with information. Usually I draw pictures beside each point so it means that you only have to learn the pictures to get the information. I did this for the biology essays and it worked like a charm!

So do I but it get bored too easily! I have managed to study throughout the year but now I just get distracted and loose concentration.
Do you know the feeling when you are reading notes or something but thinking about something completely different??!!

-Physics by writing equations on post-its and stickin them all ova my room (honest! sad I kno!) about 2 weeks before the exam
-Maths by goin through every past paper available to me, over and over again
-English by goin through close reading passages in the time limit required, done hundreds of them, remembered quotes by doin the same as i did witht he physics equations!
-Admin by reading and reading and reading! just goin through all the notes i built up
-Accounts by covering every past paper question each topic at a time-- eg all the same type of question on one nite n then another type the next nite etc etc
If I ever got into any difficulty in a past paper question, I had a sheet were I would mark down the question and wot it covered eg Maths - Sequences - 2004 AH past paper question 5 (dunno if thats rite -just a sample) and I would refer to my notes, learn it n then retry the question

I know some people who can read the notes and learn that way but I just get too distracted, that's why I have to write things out and sometimes say what I've written out loud so that it gets into my head! I must sound like a right nutter after saying that...

tomorrow doesn't matter,
turn that music up,
till the windows start to shatter,
cos you're the only one who can get me on my feet,
& i can't even dance

One thing that I have done for all of my subjects this year when studying is making up a checklist. Basically, using a word processor, typing up headings for all the units in a subject, listing all the stuff in a unit. I then print it off. Go through it sequentially (i.e. study each thing in the order in my sheet) and it gives me a clear, focussed idea of how my studying is coming along.
Here is one I made for maths:

and it goes round and round
during my revision i make mindmaps and pretend im a teacher teaching a class the subject- to show that i can remember the information and put to good practise i.e explaining it!
