    Question: when do you officially have to decide what a levels your going to do? Why do you have so many assemblies?
    At my school, we chose around halfway through Year 11 but you can still switch depending on what you get on results day. You can even still switch in the first few weeks of sixth form if you want to!

    My school has hardly any... :dontknow:

    Phew, that's a relief seeing as I have no idea what to do and just assumed that I would be given a form to fill. What did you choose?

    The first exam was bloody difficult, I remember coming out feeling like a total dumbo because I didn't know the conversion rate of miles to km. The second paper on the other hand, was delightful, espacially the end questions. I had a giant grin on my face when I saw the sine and cosine questions and the invigilator looked scared.

    Don't be tempted to revise what you know and what you like. I spent 90% of my revision on Chemistry, not because it was hard, but because I found it easy and I love Chemistry. Big mistake. Make sure you tip the balance of revision in favour of what you don't like and what you struggle with. Motivate yourself to put the hours in.

    If you want to pseudo-schedule your revision, maybe align your sessions with the school timetable, and therefore you'll end up spending a good amount of time on each subject.

    Just play it by ear really; if you know there's stuff you don't know in Physics, spend more time on Physics. Use your end of topic tests and the like to see where you need to spend the time.

    I think I saw that you do Latin: you'll have to do a lot of revision on the set texts as you go along - make sure you learn the sections as you go - it's a must, because revising 250ish lines of Latin in one go isn't really effective.

    But don't worry too much about revision just yet - not hardcore anyway - just keep on top of your work and make sure you've grasped everything you've learnt.


    I tried to learn all of Latin in one go last year. It's better to do it step by step and consistently re-read them so that they're well memorised

    It's better spending more time on topics that you personally find more difficult but also topics that are deemed A* right?

    Practice papers are a must, I think it's more effective if you get someone else to mark them.
