You think its hard and you're struggling for 90% of the time but then at the final 10% when you actually put in the effort, everything isn't actually that bad.
When it first starts out, teachers begin with the easy stuff and you think to yourself "why were the year above complaining," as you get 100% in your first mock assessment for the unit.
Then up until December things gradually get harder but you remember that 100% that you achieved at the beginning of the term and think there is no point revising.
January time comes and you have pre-public exams (mocks idk what you wanna call em) and then everything crashes and burns from there after but your habits from Sept-Dec are still there so it isn't till study leave that you ACTUALLY start revising by then it's too late but things are so much clearer.
Just keep revising from the outset and I don't mean read over your notes every night, make all your revision notes ASAP
As soon as the unit is learnt, make the revision notes - my mistake was making the revision notes day before exams and not having enough time to go through them thoroughly
I take Maths Bio Spanish and Chem

Thank you for your advice, for bio an chem how did you revise for those subjects and what do you think is a great study method that suits these subjects?
Then get flash cards or something smaller and have eg for biology Mitochondria on one side then its function and etc on the other size but make sure it is concise so you're not reading the information but just using it as prompts for the knowledge you already have. If you realise you don't know much about whats on the flashcards go back to the A3 sheet and read over.
PHYSICSANDMATHSTUTOR.COM WAS/IS MY GUARDIAN ANGEL
The website has questions by topic i know for sure in regards to biology
Not too sure for chemistry (if you need that for Chemistry Edexcel I can email you the AS questions by topic we were given from school)
