I would go over tests you have done (if you have access to them) to see where you have been losing marks and then focus on those areas. If it is about exam technique I would do as many past questions as you can to practise.

Hi @reneee603

I would suggest doing revision little and often over the holidays. You probably don't want to be spending all day glued to a textbook, so maybe try setting aside 1-2 hours, or even shorter bursts, of focused revision. Then you can do some each day, without spending all day working. Also, remember to take some full days off! I know the feeling of having exams constantly in the back of your mind, but it's also good and very much needed to take some days off doing no work at all. I find this helps me procrastinate less as I know I'm having some fun as well as studying.

Best of luck!

sadly I don't do any of those subjects but generally consistency is key, doing revision in smaller chunks is more productive than hours of work where you risk burnout, good luck!
