    You could try creating a revision timetable? You can use the TSR tools here to create one and to create revision resources: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/g/make

    To make it effective..

    - Cross off all the times that you're at school and some time afterschool to do homework (how long does hmwk usually take you? do you do it at a particular time? all on the weekend?)

    - Make time for free time, it's so important, you need breaks from work too. Study hard but also make the most of the free time you have now before things get harder and more stressful at a-level etc.

    - Have short breaks within your revision periods as well. Studying for hours at a time probably won't work, you'll lose concentration and focus so it's best to revise in short periods (45 mins) and have short breaks in between (15 mins)

    - Study at the best time, you might find it better and easier to study in the morning rather than later in the evening

    - Stick to your revision times by putting away any distractions. So if that means giving your parents/siblings your phone until you finish then do that, if you need to install an extension to stop you from going on other sites while you're working on the computer then do that.

    - Have all your equipment ready and a quiet, clean space to work in.

    - I recommend starting from your weakest and most important subjects and making a list of the topics in each subject that you need to improve the most on.

    Hope that helps!
