    Obviously revision is completely personal so I'm not going to ask how or how often to revise.

    I would like to ask anybody that has sat AS exams in January if they have any tips on how to best prepare for the exams and anything I should be aware of that wasn't apparent to you until after the exams.

    Really need to get A's in my A-levels and seeing as it just gets harder I'm desperate to get off to a good start.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    I would say you should start early and do a bit of revision each day.
    Depending on you, you might want to make notes, draw pictures etc.
    Perhaps try studying with some friends, but make sure either you aren't very good friends and tempted to chat and not work, or that you are good friends but both prepared to work!
    Ask your teacher! If in doubt go straight to them, they know best, friends aren't always right!

    Good luck with your exams
