    You still got ages, I would just make sure I understood the topics if I didn't ask for help. Do all homework and once you do your mocks then you can focus on revising the stuff you didn't do so good at etc. And also revise for the mocks *

    2 weeks before the exam, revise 3 hours every DAY, take short breaks. exercise 10 minutes in every break. research suggests that people who exercise for at least 10 minutes after revising remember more information.
    test yourself with past papers. use active revision eg doddle. use a revision guide.

    You need way more time than two weeks to revise, trust me I had A's and A* and I slowly increased the amount I revised every month untill a month before the exam when I did 3-5 hours a day

    Every one is different, me personally I only revised the day before each exam and I'm probably going to get As A*, when it comes to mocks OP will find out what she needs to know

    Doesn't always work out like that, eventually you'll get to A levels and then using that method you'll be lucky to come out with an E

    Not really. Though it depends on the individual and it's of course better to "over-revise" than under-revise..

    And reallly you don't. I'll explain why: I had my core science mock exam after the half term, which meant I only had about a week and 5 days to revise. But the thing is I didn't pay attention in class so I had literally 0 knowledge. Thats when I had to start from scratch and revise 3 hours every day onto the exam and I managed to get an A, one mark of an A*. So if learnt and revised from scratch and got an A in less than 2 weeks then I'm pretty sure you don't need more than 2 weeks to get an A*( if you payed attention in class)
