    Not too early.

    Make good notes.
    Attend all your classes.
    Make sue you tackle bits you dont understand or are weak on.
    Get some revision books- that might mean using Christmas or Bday or job money.
    Dowload mark schemes and examiners reports.
    Collect exam papers.

    You can practice exams, but its just key to have good notes by end of year 12 so you arent playing catch up.

    Up to you if you want to do extra notemaking or exam papers.

    Maths - past papers past papers . And look at markschmes

    Good advice : make all your notes in year 10 like your perfect notes in year 10 and then in year 11 it’s just repetition and past papers

    Try not to get lazy over the holidays, it can really set you back and when you come back to school you feel like you have to relearn a lot.
    Make a study/revision timetable and guide, before you start revising set out what you are gonna do and what you want to know by the end of your revision session.
    Make study notes, any interesting or important info put on a study card
    You can download apps for almost all subjects, keeps you able to revise or just up to date while on the go
    Go to the exam boards website and look for past papers and any mark schemes, they tend to follow themes
