    Every weekend look back over what you have done the past week in lessons. And at the end of every month look back over the past month. It may seem like a lot too early, but it saves cramming in hours of revision as the exams get closer.

    Definitely past papers. Aim to do a few a week, and try to do past papers from your exam board so that you know the style of the questions. Reading the mark scheme can also help you work out what sort of answer is expected from a question.

    With remembering information, you could try making flash cards, then testing yourself with them, although the revision method could depend on what kind of person you are - maybe for you, writing notes out would help more. I suggest experimenting with different methods at first, before going with the one you feel has helped you the most.
