    I save recent past papers for the week before an exam so I get an idea of what my paper will be like, and get used to the questions etc. I would have gone over my notes before this stage. The night before an exam however I find it best to chill out, and have a relaxing night. There's really no point in full on cramming and stressing yourself out, it's counter productive.

    Up to the day before the exam, I'll be working my ass off going over the relevant textbook, then doing past papers, then going over class questions on repeat.
    The day before the exam is light revision, just making sure content is solidified, doing the most recent past paper and then chilling.
    Day of the exam, good breakfast, and CHILL OUT. Worked too hard to stress. Go into sixth form and have a laugh with my mates. Then go smash the exam. [Got A*A*A* in maths, further maths and economics a level btw, so worked for me ]

    1) Make a timetable and stick to it
    2) Don't do everything together. Do each subject three times a week, to ease the pressure and revise in bite-sized chunks
    3) Make sure to use past papers, and examiners reports are crucial
    4) Stop procrastinating- if you feel you suddenly lose the will to revise, take a 10min break and then carry on. Try to get off social media.
