    Your own notes to revise and yes loads of past papers. The mark scheme is definitely a source book!
    I have Economics 2,3 aand 4; Accounting A2 this May. So yeah this is what I should be doing atleast! Btw I haven't started studying yet :P
    How about you?

    I'm in exactly the same position Nerimon. Although I don't envy the Private Schools workload, I do wish that my Sixth Form would coast through the content quicker and get more precious revision time!

    Then don't do it, and start revision instead...?

    It's your A-level, do what you need to do to get the best grade.

    In the most simple way the best way to do well is to know everything you need to, and more importantly to understand everything. The next most important thing is to figure out how the exam board want you to answer their questions using your knowledge.

    For me though the easiest way to do it is just to use the grand total of two hours travelling every day to read up on stuff.

    April half term is the best time to start IMHO
