    I'll just quote my topic, to those who missed.

    Hello there.

    I'm planning on trying to achieve as best as I can at AS, although lately my work ethic and everything has been going down. I'm trying to find the best methods and tips I can, therefore I rely on you guys!

    If you got such results at AS, when did you start revising for your exams? What revision technique worked best for you? How much work have you done a day, a week, a month?

    To those who have sciences, specifically Biology / Physics and Maths.

    Started revising around Easter I think, I went to my local library and worked 11-5 most days then relaxed in the evening. For Maths I did past papers non stop, and for Physics i turned every single point on the specification into a question, and then answered it (this improved my knowledge significantly), followed by papers I hope this helped, good luck!

    Well today was a bit of a blast.
    It was my friend's 18th today. I took him out to a gay bar and we had a really good time.

    I think I'll put Liverpool as my firm and Durham as my insurance. Not doing it just yet because I can be very indecisive, though I'm pretty set on my firm at least. Hehe I just always say aww haha

    Devise detailed notes that are easy for you to understand. The one thing I generally avoid when doing this is writing paragraphs and paragraphs and then not understanding anything in the end, so do bullet points to break down the info. I also find mindmaps and diagrams really helpful, particularly when revising hard concepts. I would also advice that you highlight your notes aswell. After you've done all this, do past papers (every one that you can find). This will help your exam technique, and strictly abide by the mark scheme.

    Hope this helps!

    True hmmm, it's hard. I was originally planning to stay at home for Liverpool, but I decided I'm living in as I can easily hop on a train if I'm missing home etc. But obviously it might not be that easy for you. You've got plenty of time, have a good think about it! Precisely

    Hahaha yup! :lol:

    Scared/Nervous of living away from home but at the same time excited
