Hi . I am a parent of two former GCSE students so I have some experiences. My suggestion to you is first to focus fully on understanding the contents. Second to do a lot of end of topic questions. If you have a mock exam before Christmas then you can have ago on past papers with intension to get as many questions done correctly as possible ( best efforts) and then learn your mistakes from the questions you did not do well. The mock exam is a reality check so you must take it very seriously. I bought my son all the GCSE books under the sun he needed ( 20 of both to be honest) some of them were " grade 8 -9" level. Your understanding of each subject must be evolving as you come closer to the real GCSE exam. It is more of a marathon then a sprint so a lot of hard work and patience is needed. You must use all the web based recourses you get your hands on. Always remember practice make perfect and if you are motivated enough then you will succeed. My son was not motivated at all but made the efforts because I gave him a great deal of support during year 11 even in daily basis.
All the best.
