    I've achieved, but for me it's about getting that last 6% at the moment, a levels and my sixth form have turned me into some sort of education nut! Also if you have the attitude of "doesn't matter, don't care"or what ever it was you said about applied science then you aren't going to do well!
    I know. I guess I've just got to knuckle down and do the sodding work!

    For history (my main essay subject and the subject that I'm most passionate about - It would be my DREAM to do history and film at uni) I generally write all my notes out in my textbook over and over again and do past papers. You too man
    For media and applied science I expect past papers is the way forward - and there's no exams in photography.

    I helped a non internet friend that does the same. I know it sounds cheesy but for history make flash cards for key facts, it's really important and realistically you'll never be able to memorise the whole book, writing up practice is important too. For me this is really important, Past Papers should be a means of checking your revision progress, not a form of revision, again I don't know much about media, but use spider diagrams flash cards, make songs whatever for the key facts , I know it sounds ridiculous. I thought the same but it does work, and then test your progress with a pp, the same for app sci! It works for me, and my friend has gone up three grades by doing it intensively for the last month!

    Mate, your last posts (the angry all-caps one) - I can really sympathise. I feel like the only good results I've gotten have been complete flukes. I've always wanted to be someone who didn't have revise much and could just absorb info.

    It's tough for us, in this sort of education system. But we've still gotta plough through it. I genuinely wish I could offer you some subject-specific help or advice, but I don't do any of your subjects, or anything like them (closest is Politics).

    All the best, all the same. There were some funky Tzu quotes posted by someone earlier, whilst they're a bit... abstract... for our purposes, they have a good message.

    I love the Art of War. I think the wisdom in it is timeless, depending on how you interpret it.

    "Master yourself, master the enemy, a thousand battles, a thousand victories."

    If one applies that to examinations etc, I am sure they'll do really well. Know the structure of the exam, what they like to ask, recurring patterns etc.

    For science A Levels it's certainly true that the exam questions are plucked from a pool of general questions they can ask, so pretty much every question is recurring every few years.
