Probably not the best advice but this is how I did it. Just read the revision books over and over again. Don't even think about trying to retain it; if you read the books a few times the facts will naturally stick or come back to you when you sit the exams. you'll remember the image of the page rather than the actual facts. just to be safe though I'd listen to some more opinions. good luck!

This is exactly what I did. I could even visualise almost every page of the revision guides when I was in an exam. It worked lol

What really helps me is going through the revision books, and reading a paragraph or section of the page then rewrite from memory straight after without looking. It doesn't have to be word for word but try and include the main points. Then after you've done this for a few pages go back and underline or highlight all the key phrases and points of the notes. This going over it again underlining always really helps me to remember and instil it in my minds. Don't worry! We're all feeling the stress

Try to revise maybe in short burst. Dont say that you are going to revise for 3hrs as it is clearly not working for you as you are struggling. Why not go through past papersand watch online tutorils that may help. Use revision guides aswell but dont just sit thete cramming usless information but pick out key points that will actually help you. Get someone to test you and help you with someting you are not sure about etc.

I learn from my mistakes more than anything so I just did all the past papers I could (Some more than once), marked them and worked on what I got wrong. I gradually got better while doing the past papers as similar questions pop up and you get used to the pattern of the exam paper which helps and won't surprise you so much in the exam. The more prepared you are, the better

Make nice concise notes by integrating the information from your revision guide, text book and any other source of information for the respective subject. Then once you have made some nice notes, develop posters or mind-maps. As exams are quite close, try and do this as quickly as you can in order to progress to the next stage which is past papers.

Past papers are the key to Science exams! Ensure that you have had plenty of practice before you go into the exam. The past papers will allow you to better deal with the time pressures (that quite a few students struggle with). Past papers are a vital revision tool, but without the basic understanding they are pointless! So make sure you re-read your notes or revision guide/text books.

Read a chapter of the revision guide each night before bed. Do lots of past papers for each subject. Make mind maps for topics you need work on. Draw diagrams. Make posters. Create a revision quiz.

Get everything ready tonight and start as soon as you can tomorrow! Make yourself start, no putting it off. The sooner you start, the better
