    Get a copy of the syllabus so you're clear what you need to know, it really helps.

    Look at past papers, always the best way I find/found.

    As much as you can! Even if you work as much as your classmates, you don't know how much people elsewhere are working...

    For physics revision, I usually pick a concept - like maybe capacitors, resistance or momentum - and then research different ways of understanding it. Like, I would read up about it in the textbook, then a revision guide, then have a look on the internet (howstuffworks is quite good, but also http://www.asa2physics.co.uk/pages/index.html is amazing).

    But also, like fh2010 said, past paper questions are really good - I find edexcel at least seem to recycle a stock of about 2 papers' worth of questions!

    the best way to get a decent grade in the exam (but not necessarily understand all the content properly) is to do a crap load of past papers.

    and basically start now. and don't stop revising until you're convinced you can get the grade you want in the exam
