    In terms of my B grades, I've learnt from my mistakes, and I'm passing on my knowledge onto those who I wouldn't want to make the same mistakes as I!

    Hmm, I think christmas (or just before if you'd like) would be a great time to really get down to making the notes on the things that you've learnt so far so that you're prepared for your mocks, and could get those notes out of the way.

    I personally know how tempti it is to start revising topics that you're fairly confident in. Don't. It's a waste of time and it won't really get you anywhere. It's good to look over your notes after your lesson too, because it's easier to consolidate what you've learnt straight away and find out whether there are any topics you'll need to work on/ask for help on.

    In terms of past papers, I'd say around March-April. Do as many as you can, and if you've done it once, do it again to ensure that you can complete it all without looking at your notes and ensuring that you've taken in the corrections once you've marked it or asked your teacher to mark it!

    Thanks guys :yep: :hugs:
