Seneca, physics and maths tutor and Corbett maths. That’s very good you did some revision though! For English language if you have difficulty with q2 paper 1 then you look at descriptive quotes or make up a sentence in your head and analyse it. I know it sounds stupid but it helps so much. For example I randomly am thinking of “the sun was a blazing fire ball” well if I were to break it down, a fire ball is very heated and very bright but also quite dangerous. The fact that it is blazing emphasises it’s powerful brightness. That’s what I did anyways. (Isn’t to good of analysis right now!) With geography I used the book and stuck post it notes on each page and it helped a lot I got a grade 8 for it btw. Tbh you should find the revision techniques that help you so much to retain a lot of information. For literature know your books and poems very well so when your tested on them you know nearly everything. But do millions of questions.
Sorry if I didn’t help.

Hi!

I would start as soon as possible so that you don't rush.
I use to make an A3 poster for each module in my subject with all the key points on and making it really colourful and coordinated.
I then try and memorise this poster and copy it from memory, but without all the colour and fancy bits. In a different coloured pen, I then add what I had missed from memory.

Or I make plans of potential essay questions, which include all the key facts. Similarly I memorise this and try and copy it from memory. In a different coloured pen i then add what I had missed from memory.

Past papers are a good way of revising, so you are prepared for the style of exams and essays you will have to write. Especially looking at the marking criteria.

I hope this helps and good luck!
