    My advice is for you to quickly summarise all the chapters; writing the formulas/concepts (graphs) in that chapter, the steps you need to take (for graphs), and if there is any formulas/concepts that you find very difficult to apply, take two or three examples from your textbook for that equation. Then you need to immediately start practising using past year papers. Don't bother timing yourself, the most important part is that you actually attempt all the questions you can do.

    I would say practise as much as you can if you get the concepts, you’ll be fine in the exam and I don’t think there’s much point in making notes, even if you don’t get something. If you don’t understand a topic, maybe get someone to explain it to you and practise as much as you can — good luck!
