    I always found looking at past papers to be the most helpful. I got an A by doing this. Go back previous years and you will find a pattern on the types of topics and questions which come up. There’s always a clear and obvious pattern. Most likely it’s the same questions which come up with a word or two changed. So work backwards.

    Use textbooks and online resources to help answer these questions. Anything you don’t get .. ask you teacher now because it’s your only chance before sitting any kinds of assessment. They’ll help you understand. Do past papers on a timed exam condition. So go to your room pretend your doing an exam and see if you can manage to answer the questions to a sufficient quality under timed conditions. Online resources like tutor 2 u and study wise have online revision notes and mock quizzes. I also found doing mindmaps for each topic and then consecutively writing them out helped.
