1. figure out what you already know and are confident with. There is no point in wasting time by memorising things you already know.

2. Try to memorise all the content you don't know/not very confident with. I would find questions suited to that topic (syllabus points) and answer them open book. That way you are synthesising all the information and articulating which will lead to memorisation.

3. Explain a concept to a friend. If everyone's busy, tell you sibling, your dog or even make a small voice memo. Ideally, a human being though.

4. Make flashcards (very useful for active learning)

Good luck for trials!

It depends on how much time you have. If you have barely any time I'd just learn all the dot points that I don't know at all, and then have a general understanding of each dot point. If I had a decent amount of time I'd just memorise all dot points properly. I like acronyms as a way to memorise things, or flash cards, but I personally used acronyms a lot.
