    Try using the specification to study. This way you can focus on the relevant theories. Use a paper to make a note on all the hard parts or anything you think you might not remember later. Then just do past papers. If you cant answer a question, look at the mark scheme. Once you're done, make sure you check all your answers against the mark scheme. This way, you'll recognise a general pattern in the type of answers, the key points that need to be mentioned and the mark allocations. Look through the difficult questions and the notes you made earlier before the exam.

    For maths, you can quickly brush through the textbook. Make a note of any equations that need to be remembered and then do questions. Do questions by topic so you can tackle all kinds of questions possible from a particular topic before moving on to the next topic.

    The most important thing is to keep yourself motivated. Keep telling yourself that you can do this. If the amount of work you have to do is overwhelming just by the thought of it, don't think about it. Tackle things one step at a time and keep going.
    Don't worry, you'll be fine.. you can do this!!! Just keep visualising yourself after your exams, on a beach on a beautiful day, just relaxing, feeling confident about your performance at the exams

    Try memorize as much as you can for Bio, Chem and Psychology and questions for Maths. You've left it far too late. Pray to his holy highness, the flying Spaghetti monster.

    I got all As for AS (and A*AAA at A2) just by cramming. For AS, each of my exams were spaced about 3-4 days apart, so I would spend the days between each exam cramming that particular subject, starting at about 5am. cramming. But to be honest, I did consistent work throughout the year, so I already was pretty prepared even before I started revising (My revision consisted of doing millions of past papers, memorising mark schemes and rewriting syllabuses). It was pretty intense but I work better under pressure lol. Up until a week before exams there wasn't much motivation to revise.

    Ahahah I knew you would say that. All I'm saying is there is a time to speak slang; and there are times where you should propose your ideas in proper English.
