    I would get a revision guide for all your subjects, next I would do a timetable so I am doing at least one past paper per day. If there is too much homework, then avoid it. Revision takes priority. Say you will bring it in next time. Don't worry about the mocks too much, they don't reflect your final grades. Then just keep at it

    Don't follow the above. I warn you. Do your homework as they are relevant. There will come a time when teachers will give you revision time, mocks are still 3-4 months away; plenty of time.

    It's up to you how you plan your revision. If you are up to date with everything then you should get it all done. Everything you need to know will be in the revision guides.
    I know when I did my GCSE's and they gave you practice questions, those helped. But when they gave you re-search tasks or stuff from the wrong specification, which was not going to come up in the test or the exam, then that stuff was pointless. If you are pressed for time, it's best to do those at a later date.

    Good luck
