    Good afternoon everyone.

    I am a retaking AS - level student, unfortunetly i did Not do well this summer (B maths,,C physics,,,U biology) so i decided to drop biology and put further maths instead.

    What do you advice me to do??
    What website would you guys recommand me to use for stuffs like: extra questions and PDF revision stuff?

    I did maths and physics as well. To get good grades is hard but this is what I did.
    Only studies in places where there was no electronics and I did not associate with entertainment. (This may be harder for some people)
    Do every single past paper TWICE!
    Do every single solomon paper!
    If you cannot get above the grade you would be happy with every time you do a past paper they you are risking it. Take into account that the exm is going to be harder than any past paper or mock exam you have done.
    Don't cheat. If you cheat in your past papers then you are lying to yourself about what level you are at so you will always be disappointing. You need to know if you are bad at a subject and so do your teachers.
