    Hello hanifah125,

    It differs among individuals. The most obvious advice is to revise a lot - but don't overdo do it. Concentrate on subjects/topics you struggle with the most - but make sure you still go over other subjects that you struggle least with.

    Make sure to take regular breaks; you don't want to be revising 8 hours straight or you will not learn much. Also, still do the things you like but not as much.

    Once you've learned something, do not leave it. It's like charging your phone, but it would soon run out of charge if you don't charge it - and therefore won't work. Keep revising, make mind-maps or teach someone else using what you know.

    There's not much else. Everything else is self explanatory. Just work hard and do your best.
