    Whenever you finish a lesson or chapter at school, do all the past papers on it. These may be available in your books or you can find 'by topic' past papers online. Doing the past papers at this time is essential because the topic will still be fresh in your mind and is easy for you to remember. Also, if you find any particularly difficult questions, leave a sticker or circle them with a green pen for instance, so that when you revise later you can focus on what you found most challenging. Revise regularly by picking chapters to do past papers on under TIMED conditions to ensure you're remembering all the chapters and not forgetting the earlier ones. If during your revision you still find a few of those green questions solvable but difficult, circle them with a red pen so that when revising before the exam you can focus on these rather than attempt to rush through all questions.
    Keep a copy of the syllabus with you for each subject and check each little bullet point/lesson as you go complete them. This ensures you've done the whole syllabus, whether your teacher misses some things out or not. If you find there's one thing you missed or something you don't understand, refer to your books or videos that explain them or online sites. There are so many resources.

    At the start of the year look through all of your topics (if it's linear, revise AS stuff too) and create a system where you go over every topic multiple times throughout the year. Make sure you do practise papers and the specimen papers because these set you up for a good response when you go into an exam.

    Don't forget about a topic forever because you did well on it once, make sure you revisit. To consolidate the things you learn in class it's often handy to draw your own diagrams, watch documentaries, watch videos or read books about what you've learnt.

    Keep everything in handy colour coded folders so you don't lose anything important.

    Most importantly: make sure you listen in class and don't fool around. Make sure you eat well every day, sleep well, and drink water.
