    Ok to build upon my initial response I would advise a few things:

    1) Make notes early and then review them consistently throughout the year

    2) Do not do past papers too early.

    3) Waking up early is an interesting point and much of it will depend upon the individual. Studies seem to indicate that teens function better working late than early but you will probably feel fresher in the morning. I tended to do the majority of my revision late or in the evening. A really good tip is to get a timer and set it for one hour. Every time you do an hour, put a tally. This allows you to keep track of exactly how much work you're doing and seeing your progress encourages you to keep going.

    What subjects are you doing? In another forum I gave quite a detailed response on A* tips for French A level if that would help.
