    Past papers and really making sure I understood the answers and if not I'd go over the content, wait around 2 weeks and do the papers again!

    Lol subjects like maths/English didn't revise
    History/geography and the others I did revise for, I memorised whatever was in the CGP revision guide for each certain paper the night before the exam.
    Tbh I wouldn't recommend my tactics, I didn't care about my GCSEs at the time and I kinda regret it lol
