    Past papers are the key to success. Also, make sure you understand everything - just knowing everything won't be enough.

    Listened in lessons, read through the textbooks before exams, and didn't panic.

    Listening and concentrating in class in the ultimate trick to success. Being taught by a teacher is so much more effective than independent revision.

    Make sure you don't have a social life!
    Revise over the summer to make sure you cover way in advance!
    Set yourself sensible deadlines and stick to them

    The point of learning is to understand a subject. Revision is simply meant to be going over untied ends and memorizing critical facts for the exam and practicing exam technique. If you're in the unfortunate circumstance of having a bad teacher, you really ought to be proactive and make an extra effort to understand the things at the same time as when you're meant to be learning in class.
