      I know this doesn't work for everyone, but maybe create a timetable to ensure you study equally for all subjects? (but of course making sure to leave extra time for difficult subjects). A great way to summarise is to create a mind map, as a visual learner I find them very easy to remember in an exam, but again, they don't work for everyone. I hope this helps and good luck! :)

      I am in the same position and getting to know the exam papers really helps! Q5 in the long questions is always a social studies question which can only come from 3 chapters (ch 17,18 or 19) so knowing them 3 really well will guarantee you doing well in that question. Also all the short questions are either based on food or resource management. There is a huge amount of information you don't need to know in the book so if you get a revision book that will help you eliminate the waffle.
