can people suggest ways I could do this please as it would help me.

Your main priority is to keep up with any homework that you have. So at the moment you probably won't have time for much revision, but as the weeks progress it's likely you'll get less homework and thus more revision time.

Try to work out a weekly schedule. Remember to include time for sleeping and any activities you want to do - this includes things like TV programmes. Try to figure out if you have any extra bits of time you could utilise. If you catch the bus to college, can you revise on the bus? If you go running, could you listen to a revision tape instead of music? Can you stick definitions on your fridge so that every time you make a coffee you have to read "alliteration is the occurrence of the same letter or sound at the beginning of adjacent or closely connected words"?

You take a book, and you read the book whilst on the bus

You could do anything on the bus as long as it doesn't take up too much room or annoy other passengers. So you wouldn't be able to listen to loud music unless you used headphones. But flashcards are likely to be fine, as long as you don't need to spread them around and you're not going to hit someone else in the face with them.
