    Hi there,

    I recently started my A-Levels and I thought it would be worth revising straight away. Would anyone care to tell me some good ways of revising for my A-Level subjects please?

    The exam board for every subject is the same: OCR, and I am writing with the new specifications for them all apart from maths. Of all of my subjects, I am most confident with maths in terms of the revision and the learning of content. The sciences are all structured in similar ways and so any advice would be much appreciated. Would it be worth getting ahead of the syllabus and what is being taught currently?

    In particular, I am worried about physics because it is probably my weaker subject of the four. Any subject specific advice would be amazing. Thank you.

    The specifications we are using are Chemistry A, Physics A, mathematics (not MEI) and OCR Biology.

    Many thanks.

    I've found that there are an abundance of resources on YouTube for A-Level Sciences. You should definitely check those out.

    A-Level physics on YouTube

    Tbh just YouTube what you are after and you should find some good channels

    So YouTube A-Level biology etc
    And also have you looked at the books?
    I do aqa so I can't really recommend anything

    Bump: I'm interested too. Personally, not a fan of physics so I wouldn't bother, but that's your choice.
