Subject-SpecificTips

Mathematics

Understand what is happening. Pay attention in class and again, practice a LOT of questions !!

Chemistry

Practise a lot of multiple-choice questions. Questions are very often tricky. And they do repeat. So the more you practice, the better.
For paper 2,4 again practice makes perfect. Try to complete as many past papers as possible and time yourselves. Paper 4 can be quite challenging.
For practicals and planning (p5), don’t panic in the lab. Be calm and focus. Pay attention to the small details (eg colour change, smell...) during your normal school/tuition practicals.

Physics

Practice is the key.
Personally, working on past papers (before year 2000) tremendously helped me in understanding physics and the concepts better.

Biology Sub

Read your books. There are much information that are very helpful in books. Notes from school or tuitions can be concise and books will give you much more information.

General Paper

Try to do at least one essay question every week. It sucks (especially if you hate GP, just like I did) but it is going to help you. And make sure to complete the question within the time allowed.
