    Practise and dedication. Just write everything you learn down, at least that's what I did. Don't slack off this summer, self-teach the subjects you take.

    For memorising things, have you tired Q/A cards? I never used them but my sister said they help a lot.

    History is probably the subject with the most content to memorise. Having said that, i remembered all the dates and details for the exam, on top of that i remembered the other subject contents too. so it's not impossible, you can do it! theres absolutely no need to start 9+months before, i recommend revising 3 months before at the earliest but you can definitely do it in 1 month depending on your subjects.

    Firstly, you need to find or what type of learner you are and use revision tips for that learning style.Get the specifications of all your subjects;it tell you exactly what you need to know for the exam so you don't waste time learning what you don't need. From the spec make notes or flashcards then keep on going over it until you know it.If you're a visual learner posters and diagrams may also help. If you're an auditory leaner you can make your own mini pod casts and listen to it on the bus or whenever you're free.The most important thing is to do past papers. For essay subjects like history learn how to structure your answers for top marks. For science based subjects you need to memorise all the answers you got wrong...they recycle the questions,so if you memorise the mark scheme answer you won't get it wrong again.

    Revise. As much as you can without getting mental health issues

    Use que cards, posters, post-it notes all over your room and use COLOUR.

    Also, don't just copy the textbook. Cut it down to what you need.

    What subjects are you taking?

    But in general, revise. use past papers and utilise your teachers!
    If you have key-words to learn, then use flash cards, they're very good for memorisation
