When ever I revise one topic my mind seems to drift of into the topics that I haven't revised yet and I keep thinking I will never be able to revise everything and I'm going to fail so might as well not revise at all (got a little bit more than a month to revise four subjects in depth)

By actually starting. Even if its starting on the simplest part by just starting to revise it will help you concentrate and get stuck in to the rest.

Break it down into small manageable sections. That way you will be happy about the progress you have made in certain areas, rather than looking at the whole picture and getting stressed out. You will fill out any empty gaps like this.
For example today I revised:
- Amines in Chemistry
- Meiosis in Biology
- King Lear quotes for English Literature.
I'm slowly going to do more as time goes by, but it is less stressful to do it like this because you will be happy with the progress.
A month is still a lot of time to get your revision done. I had to teach myself the whole F214 section in two weeks because my teachers were ill for large majority of the year, and practice questions 5 days prior to the exam. I managed to walk about with 90/90 UMS in the exam, so do not stress yourself.
Good luck! Be sure to use this site to help you understand anything you don't get.

Plan a strict revision timetable and stick to it no matter what...
Try to review many topics on the same day ..a bit from each rather than concentrating on a few topics
