Hi😁 , I’m currently in year 10 as well ... so I possibly won’t give the best advice but they are great starters:
•Making notes along the way
•Using your teachers as a recourse(they are very experienced and helpful but through various teachers , it honestly depends)
•Work consistently hard (“hard work pays off”)
•Have an equilibrium / balance of things (like chill time) because revising 24/7 can mentally exhaust you .
•Focus on your weaknesses👍🏻
Hopefully, they are helpful enough 😂

- Do as many practice papers / questions as you can. Get them marked by your teachers and look at the feedback in detail. Repeat them until you are consistently getting the grades you want.
- Have a look at the examiner reports for the exams you'll be doing. These detail where students went wrong, common mistakes etc. You can use this to aid your exam technique.
- Try out different revision methods. Find out what kind of learner you are. Mind maps, flash cards, posters, post-it notes, recording yourself, making videos, powerpoints etc.

You have a lot of time before you need to start seriously revising. For now, I recommend you start experimenting with the different methods to find out what works best for you. Then as you get into the summer term, you can start thinking more about exam techniques, and then in year 11 you can really knuckle down with the past papers.
