    Depends on the subjects you study really, but generally you could/ should:
    * Read through your notes,
    * Attempt practice questions (from books, the internet, any that your teachers give you etc etc)
    * Read ahead and make new notes
    * Try past paper questions
    * Make flash cards, posters, mind maps, etc.

    Whatever's in your folder and textbook
    And it depends on what you're hoping to get I suppose. Was it a full past paper? If so you likely haven't covered most of the topics in it as you're only two months into the course so it's not that bad. I would aim for higher though if you want to go to uni.

    You should basically look over mark schemes from past papers and look at the bold/ underlined phrases which will get you the marks

    Well you need a C to get accepted onto most uni courses. I would suggest reading examiner reports and mark schemes to perfect your exam technique. Then do the past papers again until you know all the answers! Also, if you have a case study make sure you quote in your answer. In evaluation questions finish with 'it depends on'. Make sure you always refer to the question in your answer. Best of luck!x
