Study help :/

I'm in sixth year and I have been working/revising. I have seen some people say that when they revise something they revise it the day after, then a week later then two weeks later. Does anyone know if I am at a disadvantage if I haven't been doing this? And if I am do you have tips for how I can catch up?

Spaced repetition is a good strategy to make sure you don't forget what you've already learned. The only way to find out if you're disadvantaged is by taking a blank poece of paper for every topic you've already studied in the past, and writing down everything you know in the topic without looking over it. This way you can see how much you've forgotten. Then start revising the topics that you seem to remember the least and work from there. Make 3 labels if youd like so the topics don't go out of your head again, eg after you've re-studied the topic, put it in a pile called 'tomorrow'. Once you've revised it tomorrow, move it to a different pile called '1 week'. If you find you've forgotten all or most of the information, then move the topic back to the very first pile (tomorrow).
