For GCSE I found the best way to revise was just do loads and loads of past papers, and then make sure to mark them yourself so you get to know what the examiners are looking for, and also the kinds of questions that come up are usually quite similar so you just, eventually get the hang of it.
I agree that past papers are an excellent way to boost your grades. I also recommend finding and downloading the specification for the unit you are taking. As I have done for my exam, create your own question for each bullet point in the specification. If you want an example I've uploaded what I've done for my exam so you can have a look to get you started. If you know the specification inside out there is no way you can be stumped in the exam. Best of luck!
