Best thing to do is past papers, most questions on the papers use similar methods each year so you'll get to know what kind of questions need what methods etc. Not the nicest thing to do but it'probably the best. 
Make sure you know all the main equations and formula, just in case they're not all supplied in the paper. 
Good luck!

I know this might sound very long and it involves taking the long route but if there is a sum that you do not understand then get various questions that are similar to the topic you dont understand and just do as much as you can beacuse maths is all about memorising the techniques and the equations and once its in your head.. trust me they wont find themselves forgotten! you could do lots of practice papers but then you should really be targetting the subjects you dont get and working on them!

Do a few past papers then have a look at the questions you got wrong.

Look back at the mistakes and make sure that you FULLY understand why you got them wrong. Then when you think you've understood them, go to your text book or find some questions online and do some questions on that topic, for example, graphs. 

If they are silly mistakes, read the question several times so that you understand how you should answer a question like that next time.

Hope this helps x

yh i agree with u Boms i did past papersd and it really helps i found out areas where i went wrong and kept on doing them for practise.  Also mymaths is a great website because it helps you to understand topics or areas where u feel weak on

Past Papers will really help, as well as mymaths and maths watch :) 

Or you could hire a maths tutor though its a bit late to do that now as you only have a few weeks.

Try make sure you have covered every topic of your unit/module. You could get extra help from teachers (at lunch or revision sessions), parents or even just in a book or the internet. Then you just need to get question papers on stuff your not strong at and practice until you feel you can do everything.

i make like little notecards (revision cards) with steps of how to do certain sums that need a technique (like simultanious equations or something) and then just try questions to do with the topic before moving noto the next one.
