    1. You need to get your past papers and work out why you scored C instead of the grade you wanted. Get your exam papers back if possible.

    2. Read the examiners reports.

    3. Make a lost of areas you can improve in.

    4. Improve your notes and revision materials. Consider if you need additional resources such as snaprevise or new revision books.

    5. Practice exams, read mark schemes. Go from
    Answering exam questions with books and not timed to
    Answer without books and untimed.
    Answer with books timed.
    Answer without books and timed.

    6. Plan your total revision from now till exam dates.

    Can't make any comment on other subjects, but I did math and further math for my a level. My strategy would be to practice practice and practice, start from quickly revising all the topic in the textbook then move on to past paper, all those paper you can find online, do it, learn from your mistakes and do it again and again, after you've done all the past paper, do all the exercise in the textbook. I know it sounds a lot, but once you get the trick of different questions, it'll be a lot easier, and hopefully you find it enjoyable.
