    Firstly, I would write a list of all the things that you didn't do this year so you don't make those same mistakes next year. For example, using too much social media, getting distracted or not giving enough time to a certain subject. To improve, find a study technique that works well for you if you haven't already - I think I'm a visual learner, and I have to write or look at things to learn. Small things like these really help. Also, assess your study habits weekly and give equal amounts of time to each subject. Another one is to eat healthily, and you gotta feed your brain else the info won't be absorbed and lastly, have the best positive mindset, and no one can stop you from doing anything!

    I use a website called Get Revising which makes a revision timetable for you. Al you have to do is add all the subjects and say how much time you would like to spend revising for each one, and it does the rest for you.
