    When did you start your revision? Plus did you end up going through everyf question again?
    S1 I definitely struggled with most so i put in more time - I found it easier to start revision earlier but only revise in small amounts around my A2's. My exam was early June and I started going through it I'd say early May time. (this also include extra classes on the side). This managed to get me from an E to a BC1 I literally gave myself a couple of weeks, but I knew I could do it, it was just on the day last year I messed it up and got a C! Luckily with my resit I went up to an A

    Did you resit AS maths by any chance and what did you get after your resits if so?
    oh no I did my AS levels this year but it was what Year 13s told me to do in the run up to the exams over and over again.

    i think its a good plan to do it that way too, still fresh in your mind from AS but also out the way by the time of A2 revision - as long as you keep going back to it now and again!
    Yeah i did edexcel also

    Thank you! By the way what other subjects did you do and did you resit any of them?
    You are giving me confidence that I can improve.
