    Hi i am the same board as you for Spanish and English Language how are you revising for them?

    For French I've just been doing past papers, reading French news online, reading French magazines - basically everything French! I'm also going over vocab and grammar etc.

    For English I've been looking at a lot of mark schemes, I'm actually retaking the paper and I've done it 3 times (2 were mocks) so I know it pretty well so I'm just practising language comparison and vocabulary to boost my writing.

    Hope that's helped if you need some tips on what/how to revise

    AQA Religious Studies B Unit 1
    AQA English Language Unit 1
    Edexcel Geography A Unit 1, Unit 2 and Unit 3

    Coursework wise I'll be doing:

    Ive got:
    RE both exams (I was off sick for the first one so I attained a zero )
    English Language
    English Lit Poetry
    English Lit Prose
    Maths - Unit Three
    Biology - B3
    Chemistry - C3
    Physics - P3
    History - Unit 3C The USA
    Chinese Reading
    Chinese Listening

    Phew!

    Got an A* 93/100 in International Relations for History, so that really supported my B (76/100) that I had got in a past module. Working on an A now, so incredibly happy with that!

    Resat Maths Unit Two in March - the november paper was **** hard, and I got a B 92/120. Got an A* in UnitOne so I was sitting on exactly 200 UMS. Had I not resat, I would of had to get full marks in Unit 3 to get an A* overall. So waiting on my results for that...

    Did Chemistry - C2 as well. Got 67/80 A for C1, so really determined to push higher if I can...
    Did Physics - P2 as well. In P1, I was off sick, so I got a zero, and resat and got 57/80 B, so here I need one mark off A* in P2 to get an A overall. Bit worried about P2, as I dont think the exam went as well as it could have... I feel I might have to resit the exam in June

    Looks like you are doing the same Further Maths course as me.I think its pretty easy but sometimes there is the odd challenging question that can throw you off.The grade boundaries are pretty low too.Only 112/175 for an A*.
    I am doing the further maths exam aswell. Do you know how to revise for it or any revison resources?

    Well, I am doing them one year early. I am revising now during the two week Easter holidays. I like going through the things I don't understand that well, answer some questions from them and then just do past papers.

    for english literature, can you rip out the poem you want to compare from the anthology ?

    Because without having them together it makes it much less efficient, I'm also sitting the understanding poetry exam this May

    I revised throughout the three week Christmas break for my IGCSEs, doing on average 5 hours a day (but went on holiday for a week). I think I was motivated by the thought of A levels and University; if I want to get to a top University revising is key! In my mocks I got:
    Graphics: A star
    Photography: A star
    Art: A star
    Religious studies: A star
    English literature: A star
    English language: A star
    German: A star
    Physics: A
    Biology: A
    Chemistry: C
    Maths: C
    I was really happy with most of my results, but was hoping for my science results to be higher. I was expecting worse grades in Chemistry and Maths; I have had an extremely bad teacher for three years of Chemistry (he was sacked) and Maths just isn't a strong subject! In the summer, I have only 13 exams, but I have three Art/Design exams in a couple of weeks. I am also retaking my English Language (we did it a year early) because I got full marks in the coursework and was expecting an A star. I was two marks off the A star grade boundary. I regret taking so many arts, and R.S as well; I wish I had done History and Latin instead!
    For A-level I am going to do Art history, English literature, Philosophy and Politics, and I'm hoping to do either History of art or English lit. at University. I am aiming for Oxbridge (though I know it is extremely competitive) and it is the thought of this that keeps me motivated through revision! Good luck to everyone in the summer exams
