    Hi I have just started my first year of a levels and I'm doing biology chemistry and maths .I am extremely scared as I have heard a lot of myths about people failing their a levels or not getting good enough grades to get into their desired course at university; so my mind is so anxious at everything I do.

    I really want to study pharmacy at university and know that it requires me to get top grades so can someone please give me advice on hoe to get a's in the a levels I have chosen !!!
    As I really do not want to fail my as or a2 any advice would be helpful as I am extremely scared right now and I'm determined to get the grades but unsure what techniques to use

    You've just started A levels which may be seen as quite a leap so it is okay to be nervous and scared. Although there may be people who do not do well, there are also a lot of students who do exceptionally well so you really don't have to worry too much. Just study consistently and you should be fine. Do your best and you will have no regrets.
    I can give you one tip for Biology because that is the only subject that you and I have in common. Some visuals may aid in understanding concepts. I had watched many videos on youtube like Crash Course to help me understand the immune system. Don't count too much on these videos but use it more as a stepping stone to better understanding.
    You'll do well! Don't panic You've just started your A's only
