    Work on chemistry and biology. Maths and physics are logical subjects, so if you're as smart as you say you are, focus on chemistry and biology because their mark schemes can be super dodgy whereas the mark schemes of maths and physics are straightforward. This is from an AS Level student who should have started revising so much earlier (earlier than the first week of April). Basically, we're in the same boat and that makes two of us. Keep calm and study hard! XD

    I'm doing Further maths, physics and chemistry only. For further maths, I'm doing a whole A Level (C1, C2, C3, C4, M1 and M2) in one year and S1 as my seventh module because why not? XD Further maths board is Edexcel. For physics and chemistry, I'm doing AQA but both are the new specifications which were introduced in 2015 thanks to the new government and education secretary (those *******s!). For me, AS modules (C1, C2, M1) in further maths are a piece of cake. I find C3 and C4 straightforward, but M2 is solid. S1 - I shall just have to hamper past papers before the actual exam. Physics is straightforward but chemistry is not easy. How about you? Are your sciences the new specs from AQA or other exam boards? PS: The new spec is so much harder than the previous spec on AQA (Physics 1 and 2, Chem 1 and 2). Please reply.

    damn so much maths. I do AQA for maths and C1 and mechanics are piss, C2 is quite easy although logs do piss me off a bit, what part of chemistry do you not find easy? I find chemistry to be fine. and yes the new sciences from OCR, I hope the boundaries will be low!

    Update:
    28/04/16

    Chemistry:B
    Maths:B
    Physics:B
    Biology D

    Managed to cover all the content for three subjects in the last four days or so and did some papers, just guess I need to refine my exam technique and do more papers and make a start on biology

    Update: 06/5/16
    Maths: A
    Chemistry:B
    Physics:A
    Biology: D

    Still need to do biology :/

    Update: 14/5/16

    Biology: C
    Chemistry: A
    Physics: A
    Maths: A

    Just need to fit in about 30 hours of biology before my exam I'd say but for the others, day before the exam revision will be enough(But I'm going to revise those before the last day anyway because why risk it?)

    I thought this is what he got then saw the date.

    Hopefully he will update and if he did get 3A then he should bottle it and sell it to make a killing.

    Awesome! Tbh, I'd probably recoomend retaking C1 to bump it up to an A.
