    Oh wow well done ! How did you find them especially economics ?
    Also good luck x 😌
    Funny thing I found maths quite easy but ended up getting a B even though
    in tests and homeworks i used to get As but the thing about maths is grade boundries are always very high my top tip for maths is just practice as much as you can. I ended up dropping maths lol

    Biology was alright you just need to find the best way of revision that suits you. The application questions can seem hard in the beginning but then you get the hang of it. You just need to know the content like the back of your hand basically lol. Not gonna lie I used to mess up in my tests quite alot ehm ehm... Cs and Ds XD but i ended up with an A in real exam

    Chemistry was alright its my favourite subject lol but many people find it hard. the only thing about it is you have to revise thoroughly because if you dont understand one thing you'll be totally lost. I also used to get As in my tests but ended up with B

    Economics personally in the begining i found it not too bad but then it got quite difficult with the essays... im not good with them even now haha I used to get Cs some As but the As were only in things like key terms test and tests that dont involve essays. Make sure you know the content well and practice questions and essays and you'll be fine. I ended up getting an A.

    This ended up being really long haha but i hope it gives u a bit of an idea... again this is from personal experience so might not be the same for u. but as u can i was doing so great in chem and maths but ended up getting Bs in them and I used to do bad in biology and economics but ended up getting As in them. The day of the exam is most important so dont panic if u mess up in few tests it acctually makes u learn from ur mistakes and motivates u to work harder lol. overall I worked really hard and it wasnt a walk in the park XD

    Hope this was useful if you have any questions or need any help u can ask me! best of luck!

    Hi,
    For maths once you know the content you just have to practice and practice questions. This can be past paper questions so this can be from the board you are doing to the board you aren't. You could also practice with questions from textbooks. You could use physics and maths tutor which is a very good website for maths also exam solutions 😌 Hope that helped

    Update 03/11/16 :

    I feel like as soon as I've gone back to sixth form I've been bombarded with so much work it's not even homework it's revising for tests. Well it's a bit of homework but a lot of tests to revise for. I've got 5 exams to revise for and I've only done 1 so far.

    In biology I received my test and I got an A which I was very pleased with 😌

    In chemistry we haven't got our test back because some of the other classes haven't done it. We are also doing calculations e.g titration,Gas Laws and many more ! We've also got a test for chemistry soon !

    In maths we've started C2 and we've got a C1 mock soon which I've got to revise for.

    Finally, in economics we have started Macroeconomics which is a little harder than Micro but I don't mind it. I also have to start doing past paper questions soon because for my other subjects I have started except from economics.

    Well I guess that's it from me and I shall update very soon. 😌

    Idk, my teacher is the best. Our students are slow and not willing to learn tbh, but yeah he definitely makes it clear.

    Well done!
    I had 3 bio tests and got:
    E on the first one - I retook it and got A
    A on biological membranes and transport
    A on biomolecules

    LOL were barely half way through c1. Were you taught c1 and another module with a different maths teacher? e.g. s1 for me.

    Thanks! How are you finding S1? I find it really boring. At first it was really confusing but it gets really easy as you go along.
