    Make sure you have a good revision guide. If you don't you could ask to borrow one (or a textbook from school). otherwise have a quick read of them in waterstone's and then buy them from amazon or ebay.

    English Lit- annotate what you're going to be writing about, and do it in as much detail as possible. Then, with a fresh copy of the stuff you've just worked on, try and annotate it again from memory, but under timed conditions. Try and find a variety of questions about every source you're working on. Why not try linking up all the pieces you have to write about, and draw comparisons between them? It may help you remember more in the long run. With English it literally is just practice, practice, practice- sorry

    English Lang- try and work on a variety of unrelated sources, and just write as much about them as possible. If you can, get someone else to do the same then compare ideas. Otherwise, the advice is pretty much the same as for English lit- just do as many past papers as you can, read lots, and just constantly be thinking about what the author wants you to think about or could possibly mean. Don't be afraid of finding some completely odd, weird meaning- so long as you can explain it and give some evidence for why you think that, you'll be fine.

    Maths- do as many questions as you can, then make up your own and answer them. Work hardest on the areas you understand the least- have you got access to anything like MyMaths or MathsNet? If so, try and use them. Do as many past papers as you can, and see if you can get a revision guide or workbook to test you further.

    Geography- know your case studies inside out- make flashcards, posters, or whatever to help you remember. Stick flashcards with keywords and key definitions around your room, and pay attention to them.

    With every subject practice makes perfect, so try and revise from your notes and then try past papers.

    Best of luck!
