Is there something you know you struggle on? Like how to interpret questions or experiment type questions? You could have an exam technique (like underlining keywords and circling the command word) to help you answer the question,or get a bunch of experiment questions to work on them.
Create a revision plan and start working on those topics. You can use TSR's revision tools to create a revision timetable and resources: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/g/make
You might have recently done mocks? and you'll have tests that you've done in school. Look back at them and look at the questions you got wrong, make a note of them and then work on those topics. Then go back to those questions and try them again. Also look at questions where you've lost marks and create new improved answers on those, or make notes on your test papers from the mark scheme.
It's useful to look at past papers and mark schemes, even if you're doing a new exam, you can look at the past papers from the old specification so you can get practice from that as the content will be similar. You'll also have the specimen papers.
Talk to your teacher and ask about where you can improve on, and ask them for any help if you need.

I did chemistry A level and the thing that helped me get my grade up was doing loads of past papers and then marking them. The mark schemes tend to follow a very similar pattern in terms of what the exam board want for a specific type of question, so if you do the past 5/6 years of papers, you will have been pretty much all of the question styles they've published and this should help. Good luck!
