    once you've done past papers, look through the mark scheme and jot down the ones you got wrong, and add in any extra info from the markscheme onto answers that are correct. the thing is that if you know the wording of the markscheme and realise how short the answers they need you to give, the less you'll panic and are able to apply the knowledge better as you'll know how to word things. with science even if you got the right info, but worded slightly differently, it's wrong according to the markscheme.

    TLDR : learn the markscheme, that's all tbh

    You definitely have enough time!
    I have the same exams as you so I'll be revising too.
    I'm going to do past papers and go through my weaker topics in the textbook.
