    So the best way to learn is to do all your work and notes from the START of the year! No messing around and actually willing to spend your free time doing the best you can to actually smile at the end of the year on results day instead of crying! TRUST ME! I went from a CCD to ABB, with only two retakes, so yes you can do anything! I can't stress thing enough, but at the end of the day its a year or two out of your life and you will 100% regret it if you know you could have worked harder but you didn't really push yourself! Also, if your school don't give 'study leave' like mine , then do whatever you feel is right. I didn't bother going to lessons some days as my teacher in psychology was atrocious, got letters sent home, senior teacher shouting in my face (with pressure of exams mind) and guess what? I GOT AN A*.I also...-Made a timetable which I genuinely committed too (rare for me)-Made a lot of flashcard- which I then summarised onto posits-Made my own notes from different resources which really help (thanks student room)-Spoke to my family about the topic I was studying, this made me feel more confident about actually understanding the subject which I believe is very important-Also having a social life is definalty important (it keeps you sane) but please try and avoid your phone and focus on you and your revision (while your at it avoiding junk food would be great- if you want those grades you would do anything) Please ask me for any revision material or anything advice or general questions

    Yeah a lot of people make the mistake of revising with their phone around... DON'T. Either have it switched off and out of sight or on silent/airplane mode. You can use your phone as a reward however- 10 minutes on your phone for 30 minutes of work, you just need to be self-disciplined.

    Nope, I'm going in to A2. Will do roughly the same things but improve on last year and just do more.
