Past papers. Do lots of them and revise the questions in your book over and over again. Perhaps study at least 2 hours a day each. Try to follow a schedule. Every 45 mins take a 15 min. break. Most important thing is the past paper. In every exam there has got to be some questions similar to the past papers.

Study in groups. Sometimes studying in groups help but if you're a chatty type or your classmates are, perhaps it won't be such a good idea. Tutor other students. They learn something, you remember something, it's a win win situation.

Memorizing would be a good idea, if you've got excellent memory. Some ppl just aren't able to memorize that easily. Instead, understanding about the subjects and being able to explain them to other people may help them remember. :D Here's a good site for any of you guys who need study tips. http://calnewport.com/blog/

im like that aswell :[ but the best method for me is to revise a topic each time until i understand it(read a page over and over again until i can remember everything it said), making spider diagrams and making notes with different colours of felt tips.
