Often a good way to create study/revision notes is to link concepts/processes diagramatically. However, it is important that the diagrams make sense to you and that you can use them to answer GCSE science exam questions.

I did read a 'funny' on instagram the other day. Somebody posted that they had completed an exam question by looking up the answer and then writing it in. They commented, 'full marks to them'. 

This is an excellent way of practising exam questions, but if you need to refer to the answer to complete the question then make sure you put that in context and know that you still need to do more work to fully understand the concept.
