For maths go. To physics and maths tutor.com find your exam board and complete everything relevant to your spec on the website
2 months before the exam finish all the solomon papers and for physics use the notes on the website and past papers are the key to success at a level

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.

What's a Solomon paper?
I use physicsandmathstutor for chemistry and biology but they don't have WJEC for maths and I can't find anywhere else seems as it's a new 2017 spec this year

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

Understand content instead of memorising. Learn why things work.

I think this blog has really amazing tips on how to revise: http://www.learningscientists.org/bl...y=For+Students
Really worth reading the posts or listening to the podcast.
And there is also this one that is specific to how to create an effective revision timetable - also really relevant! https://www.kent-teach.com/Blog/post...-learning.aspx

Good luck!
