    You need to start now, I'm currently in year 12 and I already do 3 hours every night work and revision, not including set homeworks. I'm also interested in medicine. I don't want to 'peak' too early though, so for now I'm leaving the past papers for the next few weeks and just making flash cards and window paining (put you page into squares and write everything you remember about certain topics into a square) it's useful!

    You should have all your notes completed soon. Then read them in your folders, and construct a timetable where you give even time to your subjects. Cover the page and try and write down everything you remember about the topics. Then check your notes and the marks schemes and examiners reports, and try and add what you forgot to the last time. Repeat. Also, towards the beginning of February I would start doing more past papers, and look for patterns in previous years etc

    Don't start too early and surely you have other subjects to do past papers in as well? Have you checked out xtermepapers? There's a lot more past papers on there which are not on the board websites. Plus you should do the past paper a couple of times, or at least more than once, but wait a week or 2 before attempting it again. In that gap, try and go over the cogent that you missed out more, as that means there is an obvious gap in your knowledge

    I found that if you do a past paper early enough you can usually do the same past paper in 5 months and have forgotten all the answers, but maybe save a couple of them so they're fresh in may. also even if its not for your exact spec you could try doing past papers from other exam boards

    Consistent revision and msking sure you understand everything by doing copious amounts of past questions- not too early though
