    Do as well as possible in AS as A2 is harder and only worth the same UMS

    when teachers say "help out in X event, its good to put on your UCAS" they are lying. The chances are you won't have enough space to put on the several events that you helped out at, on your personal statement as it is limited to 4000 characters and plus it's not really that impressive to say you "helped out at X school events" cse universities don't really care about that. But ofc at the time, teachers will be telling you its very impressive and its useful for UCAS. It isn't. Don't fall for it.

    It's not as easy as you think, if you don't revise or resort to last minute revision you could end up with a U grade.
