    I've only read like the first chapter. I'm focusing on biology more, because of the enormous content.
    For biology make sure you use the spec and mark schemes, exam boards tend to be very specific in what they want you to write.

    Aren't you worried? I looked over the A2 modules and they look really confusing IMO
    No not really tbh, i work hard through the year and need a break. I am predicted BBBB which is what i need. What subjects are you doing next year?

    If you're starting A-level this September, then there's no need to start learning everything by yourself (especially if you aren't sure of what you need to learn, and how). It really is a bit pointless, and you should just wait until you start.
    I'm revising according to the specification though. And the textbook explains the topics really well too.

    I wouldn't start learning now btw but there are a few things you can do to prepare for example look up the specification and edit it to make it more shorter and more to the point, this will save you time when you are closer to your exams and you can just use it as a checklist. Also make cards for all the reagents and conditions you need to know that way you can just go over them before tests and not waste time making them again. Do you know what exam board you're doing for chemistry?
    Good point. I'll make a checklist out of it soon. I'm also going to use the info on the spec and turn them into questions. Yes, I'm going to make them on the flashcards app on my phone - so I can go over them when I go to school. OCR (and thanks for the help, I really apreciate it!)

    I just want to get most of the content finished So that I can do as many past papers as possible and learn the exam technique for it. (I hardly spent time doing past papers for some of my GCSE's and I know that was a stupid mistake)
