Don't procrastinate and put off studying the hard stuff until the last minute, or you will regret it. Try and cover the hard sections first. For example, suppose you have to learn an irregular French verb and where to put the comma in English. If English is easier for you, don't spend an hour looking at it, especially if you already know it. Do an hour of French and then you can do English with whatever time you have left.
