One good study technique is reviewing your notes every day after school. Spend at least 30 minutes or so every evening going over your notes from each class. Another good technique is using your textbook to refer to from your notes. You should also study in a quiet and stress-free area.
Put studies before activities like chatting with friends, using the laptop or texting and doing anything that will keep you from getting your studies finished before bedtime. Come home from school,have a snack then go into your room and set a time limit to finish your studies. If the homework takes longer, then go with it. Accept no phone calls and be true to your studies.You will be proud you have learned how to organize your time so well.Your grades will also get better:)
If studying with a friend helps, try that too, especially when studying a language..You both can converse in your language homework.

It depends on your learning style and what you are studying for. I personally like to make a summary of the difficult topics. Discussion with friends (way before the exams, and not just before the exam as that will confuse you) works well for science.
