How to get straight A's in GCSEs Watch
Go through plenty of past papers as if you are taking the actual exam to get the most practice.
If you are stuck on anything, ask someone for help - don't think it doesn't matter.
Revise. Past papers. That's it, and it's all that the people on TSR can tell you. Everyone learns differently, you should decide for yourself how to get those grades
I did a resit of GCSE chemistry back in the day, and I was currently getting Cs and it was dragging my overall average down. In the weeks leading up to the exam, I did all the past papers several times over and I took them to my teacher whenever I got a question wrong. I think I needed 90% to get an A overall for science, and I managed to get full marks instead. It was literally a case of beating the past papers to a pulp.

I got straight A/A*s in GCSE with little 'notes and textbook' revision but by just doing 3 past papers in each subject. I found that for GCSE, this was enough to be familiar enough with what you have to write for each topic to get marks, especially in science subjects.
Also I found that just paying attention in class 90% of the time helps, so that revision is just revision of what you know, not learning from scratch.
Cramming is also not helpful. If you feel like you are one of those people who cannot revise, do past papers or get a revision guide and literally read through it, so it feels less like revising. Cramming works to some extent but you're better off being on the safe side a starting a few days earlier.
Remember to focus on the subjects/topics you find harder and do not leave them to the last minute. You can cram the topics you get much easier than the ones you have no clue about!
Good luck with your exams!
