I'm not sure what exams you have, but here are some general revision tips.
1) PAST PAPERS! They'll help you so much to get a feeling of what the exams are like and what kind of questions they'll ask, as well as highlighting the areas you need to work more on. It's quite an active way of revising so you pick up a lot as you go along, and the mark schemes are helpful for seeing what the examiners want to see (especially for sciences)
2) Find your style of learning and make revision material based around that. Although it's nice to have a variety, if you're visual, make mind-maps (though be careful because sometimes they look a little messy/unorganized.) Or maybe some flash-cards? If you're more auditory, you can record yourself and play it back.
3) Read through the specification and see what you need to know. Sometimes, in the sciences, revision guides go a little beyond what you need to know in order to help your understanding, but usually on the specifications they say "knowledge of ... is not required in the exam". There's no point spending lots of time on something that will not come up.
4) Make a revision timetable! These are so helpful. Make it with specific topics that you need to cover (this is more motivational than just writing the subject) and as you go through, tick off what you've done. It feels rewarding!
5) Work hard and do as much as you can. If you've done your best, no matter what grade you get, you won't feel guilty of not revising, and you can still be proud of your achievements.
