    What school in Liverpool are you in? And Just basically become a hermit, make notes, practice papers blaa blaa blaa. As to how many hours revision you will need. I have calculated it will be 65.45 hours.

    I would suggest a revision timetable from now til the summer and perhaps invest in a good revision guide too. I found that smaller sessions and much more frequent revision really helps. Maybe condense your notes down into a set you can revise from?

    It's possible to up your grade quite a bit if you're willing to work at it. (Obviously don't neglect your other subjects if you're doing more than one).

    I'm doing the A -Level in a year, did really well in january (unit 1 and 2) and I sat my AS empa today... which was meh. But oh well life goes on

    REVISE REVISE REVISE is the best way

    Edit: as the above poster says... do practice papers! Then after you mark them, concentrate on the areas you didn't do so well in.

    do loaaaaaaads of past papers and mark schemes and just ask your chemistry teachers if they can give up a lunchtime/hour after school to help you.
    past papers helped me because they often put in one or two of the same questions, and similar ones, so in the january exam i was sat there thinking - yayyy ive done this.
    be organised as well - i made myself a revision timetable and stick to it religiously.
