i speak fluent spanish and like you, when learning it i was confused with the tenses. My advice is to keep practicing it because it will come to you, put up sticky notes in your room or places you will visit around the house so you will see it a lot and it will stick on your mind. If you are stuck on verb endings, memorise the substitution you have to apply for the verb also, i memorised it in ways like ar- verbs i remembered the word arrogant, and called them arrogant verbs. It is extremely tricky to memorise it i will admit but if you put in the work, i guarantee you will remember it in the exam. The writing exam i did didn't consist of tons of having to conjugate verbs and tenses but there was a small part. You can always search ways on google as there are sometimes methods of remembering it like they teach you in maths or eng, e.g. like the bus stop method but for spanish words if you understand. Sorry i couldn't be of further help but good luck with your Spanish GCSE.

Look at the endings then try testing yourself by quickly writing down on scrap paper the ending from memory. Also, to help it stick in your head for a bit longer, you could practise doing the grammar exercises on 'languages online' (for tenses you're studying) as these get you to use your knowledge and applying it to different verbs. I think languages online is a really good for learning grammar.

What our Spanish teacher does is find songs on YouTube to help us. For example, there was a song for the endings of 'ser' that was to the song I'm Yours by Jason Mraz. It's cheesy, but it works!
Also, as the others have said, language apps like quizlet and memrise can be useful. It may be worth writing notes out for the tenses and highlighting them if you're a visual learner.
