    Well, you're going to need hard work.

    Do this. Buy a separate journal/book whatever, and go on to do past papers as normal and not just old ones. Any. When you correct your paper alongside the marking scheme, note down in the that book the answers you didn't know. For example if a question asked for Alkenes and you didn't know it but checked to find out it was bromine water, add the bullet in your book "Test for alkene is bromine water". Go through these notes regularly. This way you can practice well before the night of the exam, but the notes will allow your cramming mind to deal with it as you'll have those notes to cram with.

    And Of course, as Onde said, top up your knowledge.
