    science - make notes going through the course text book and your class notes and consolidate them into an easy to understand and shorter version (do this as you go along whenever you have frees or no hw) - this will help you learn it and also will give you something good to look back on at the time of your exam. I'd recommend doing these on the computer bc its quicker and more compact and then just print them out into a folder.
    maths - i have an exercise book where i just write out revision notes and steps on how to do things with examples which is really helpful. Also maths is one of those things that you won't even really have to revise that much as long as you understand it and do practice questions along the way.

    If you want to study the smart way, sit down and go through the course curriculum and make yourself a detailed todo list. Then just go through each one - one by one. Read, Cover and explain to yourself what you learned, uncover and check. When you can explain the material, you've learnt it, move on. When you revisit the material, see how much you can explain without

    If you have a hard time getting through the material use a focus app like Promo Timer to keep you on task. Promo Timer is my favourite but there are loads out there if you want to try them out.

    wow I'm really late but if you still care the Solomon papers are just harder versions of normal math papers and they get harder as you progress through them
