That picking an A Level that you got an A at GCSE would be seem reasonable to pick at AS Level! I got an A for GCSE English Lit and did at AS and it was the biggest mistake I made because I hated it as it was so difficult to do! Only pick subjects in A Levels that you will enjoy and want to get good grades in!!
That all the extra curricular activities you do throughout year 12, distracting you from your actual a levels, because some teacher told you you'd need them for your PS are pointless (except for medicine). Just focus on the a levels.

Actually doing extra reading around the subjects you study would have been a brilliant idea... Oh, and that journal article reading is a great way to prepare for university. Reading around certainly makes a personal statement stronger though
Do not treat it like GCSE, A-level is very different and at least 10 times harder. If you spend an hour doing revision for GCSE per week, you need to do at least 3 hour of revision for each subject per week. This will make you feel a lot confident and also help you in getting better grades.
Most of us won't have the patience to follow our timetable 100% tightly, so push yourself a bit harder at the beginning is ok IMO.
