I am doing: Maths, English, Triple science, Geography, Media studies, Music and French. does anyone have any revision techniques i could try to use for each subject? I understand that some techniques work better for others.

Use the BBC bitesize website. Listen to the podcasts, do the activities, do the tests.

Closer to exam season, go through past papers in your subjects and mark them using the mark scheme - take note of what specifically gives you marks (is it a certain word, is it explaining further, etc.)

For essay-based exams you just need to practice time management. Make the most of BBC bitesize and time yourself on your essays.

I would honestly suggest that you don't "revise", just yet, however definitely do work hard on understanding the topics covered and perhaps look at topics to come. If you actually understand your subjects then the revision process doesn't take up much time as it will simply be a refresher of stuff you already know. As people have said, do past papers. There is nothing better to do than to be able to master the exam questions and don't worry about timing for the time being, as you should find that you become quicker at answering the questions, so timing issues will solve themselves.
