International Science Olympiads - How did you study for it?

I don't expect this to gain a lot of traction... I am lucky enough to have the opportunity to attend the National Science Summer School/Camp in 2020. I had no help up until this point, so if any of you have experienced a rigorous academic competition before, it would be great to know how you studied for it and how you organised your time leading up to it.

I tried very hard for physics but got in for Biology. I think some of the study habits can be shared between subjects.
