I just thought I'd share some revision tools and anyone can drop their ideas in the comments.
I find that working in short bursts of 45 mins works because that way, I don't overwork myself and have breaks in between to ensure that I don't get fed up with revising for a long period of time. Moreover, I find that drawing mind maps for revision helps because I can get my thoughts and ideas down in a clear way. I think doing practice papers helps to because you get a taste of how the exam questions might be structure.
I hope this is helpful and useful; if you have any thoughts, just comment them below

revision techniques- https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/g/d...ow-to-revise-5
Study timetable in case if you want to make one and don't know where to start:

These methods pretty go with all the subjects...
Method of revision:
- mind maps
- teaching others
- recording yourself and listening back to it
- repeating things aloud
- revising with classmates
- drawing diagrams
- making a song of it
- a silly story to help it stick
- making notes from textbook then summarising those further into your own words (try having a limit on number of words to stick to key points)
- writing things over and over again
- using colour

Make a list of all the topics, prioritise them by ordering in terms of which you need more help with/need more time to go over, then tackle each one

If there is something you're particularly stuck on, ask the teacher for help!

Get practise from exam and practise questions! It will help to reinforce things and find your weaker areas.
Hope that helps as well
