Well, It depends on the Subject.

If It's Science ,Geography or maths, then I think practice papers are the best, as practioce makes perfect, it also helps your to remember what the questions are asking for in the exam as you've done similar ones in past papers. With Languages, including English writing and speaking, you should try to revise paragraph by paragraph and say it off by heart. But for Language exams (not including eng) I have no Idea. Lol

It does help.All you need is motivation and you need to be firm with yourself, less TV, going out, games, on the phone ect. An 3 hours revsision a day is good, with 20 min breaks in between each hour. It's worth it.

I got A in Unit 1 Maths and A in Biology, A/A* In Chinese and French Writing and speaking (It hasn't been moderated so who knows what I'll get!)

For science subjects I make revision cards and learn the key facts on them. For other subjects like Maths I do lots of practice questions.

Hope this helps!

For diagram based subjects (e.g. Economics), I make flash cards with the diagrams since they're easier to see that way.

If it's something like English Literature, I read the book several times, putting sticky notes where key events happen/quotes are. Things like Science (though I'm not doing them), Past Papers are the way to go.

But for all of them, leave about a month to look through past papers, since several questions tend to come up each time. I haven't gotten official results yet, but in my mocks I got a B in English Lit and A's in Media Studies, Economics and Government and Politics.

Hope it helps!

For any subject, past papers are always helpful! Look especially at mark schemes so you know exactly what they're looking for:) with subjects like english, do a practise question, and ask your teacher to mark it for you, because the mark schemes aren't very clear.

After doing a past paper, learn everything you did wrong, and make posters/revision cards, i find it really helps.

Good luck guys:)

For maths definitely past papers, and for subjects like english, read through whatever it is, then tab everything, then make mind maps. science...page by page from the revision guide. :)
