For most subjects the questions will change, but the topics do not for years. If there is something you do not understand from your teacher, or your text book have a look on the internet. There will likely be hundreds of videos dedicated to your exam explaining it. These can be watched and re-watched as many times as you need. Bonus points for attempting past exam paper questions the day after watching the video to test your understanding. (I used this channel extensively for my A-level chemistry exams)

You don't need to reinvent the wheel. A levels have been around since the 1950's so there is a plethora of advice out there. Time tables, revision notes, explanation videos, tips on how to manage your time during the exam. Whatever you need you can more than likely find it for free online which will save you time rather than figuring out how to make your own from scratch.

Put it into practice

Everyone needs time to relax and give their brain a break from revision, but it is easy to feel guilty doing nothing when you know you have exams coming up. It is key to remember that time away from your books is healthy, and without breaks you run the risk of burning out, or getting stressed because nothing feels like it's going in. A way to fight this is with a hobby. It keeps your hands and brain being creative, and is a welcome change of pace from your logic heavy revision. This can be whatever you enjoy, but even better if it is something that can be picked up and put down whenever you have allocated time, is not too expensive, and is not reliant on the inconsistent British weather.
