With maths it is all about practice, do a past paper and find areas of weakness, and then go over them topics in the textbook and answer most of the accompanying questions until you are getting them consistently right, and then move onto your next topic. When you have gone over all of the topics that you lost marks on do another past paper and repeat the process.
If you are losing marks on things such as accuracy levels or units it can be helpful to underline or highlight this at the start of the question as this can make your brain consciously think about this information.
Finally if there is anything you get really stuck on the Maths forum on here is full of helpful people who will try and guide you into working out the right answer, which can be helpful if you are really not getting a specific topic.
