    Past papers 2 or more times, and only the difficult questions in the text book.

    Do all the past papers, and solomon/delphis papers. Note down where you lose marks each time - is it an error in addition/subtraction, or is there a concept you didn't understand. Attempting past papers twice, particularly those which you found difficult, would be a good idea if you have the time. I find it easiest to arrange all of this information in a spreadsheet.

    I would do fewer textbook questions -focus on the difficult ones. Exams are requiring you to think in more of an 'outside-of-the-box' way, so exam questions are getting further from textbook questions. Do enough questions that you understand the concept and can do the hard questions, but do not waste time pointlessly doing all of the questions in an exercise where the questions are easy. Another reason to do this is to manage your time, especially if you're doing maths and further maths, as well as lots of past papers.

    If there's anything you do not understand, however unimportant or important it is, immediately go about trying to understand it - through teachers, friends, tsr, YouTube videos, other online resources etc.

    I hope this helps a bit

    Basically what stardude8 said! It's all about practise really and minimising your silly mistakes.
