    Do you think if I got an A* in my physics mock and I basically don't revise for the summer I'll still keep at an A* level??
    Did you revise for the mock?
    I'd say no, basically. You're going to have more exams than you did in the mock period and be under more pressure, you need to make sure you know everything. I know people say GCSEs aren't important, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't revise :nah:

    Even if you only do a bit of revision it's a really bad idea to have done no preparation Condense your textbook/notes onto flash cards or post it notes

    You can't do more than one past paper surely? Cause it's a new specification?

    My teacher gave us some questions from the old spec as it was very similar so there are some stuff we can't but most of it was on our spec.

    I've finished all of my Double Science notes; I guess it's just a matter of going through stuff I'm not as good at and identifying what needs to be nailed down via. past papers

    History's nearly done ... Just USA left to write + a bunch of past papers and I should be alright. Hopefully :P

    Waitwaitwait. I'm doing edexcel igcse history, and I'm pretty sure that spec hasn't changed for that (as we haven't be notified of anything) :/ If it has, um ... Welp.
