How to prepare yourself for A-Level exams? Watch
I'm currently studying Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths at AS.
I've been so caught up with all the school work and homework I haven't really started proper revision for the exams coming. All my exams are in May and June, I don't have any January exams.
If you have already done AS or doing them, please let me know some of the things I shoud be doing from now on to be able to get good grades at the end of AS.
I am finding it difficult to spread my time around with all of my subjects because I find some more difficult then others. Would that be a problem?
Any advice would be very useful. Thanks in advance

Okay, maybe not, but you might find yourself doing this at some point
I recommend ordering revision books for each of your subjects and making notes using both this and your textbook to ensure you encompass all points on the syllabus (Which I also recommend you print off so you can tick when you've met a target)
As you go along, finishing a topic, answer questions relating to this. If you get questions wrong, use the mark scheme to improve your answers, or use the mark scheme to create a model answer so you know; if you get a question similar to the one you answered, how to answer it.
When it comes closer to the exams, and you're sure you know all you need to know, use exam papers to prepare. You could do one in one sitting as if it were the exam, or spread it out and give yourself a break to refresh your memory. You could also do the exam with your notes beside you if you get stuck.
All the further maths stuff you will learn. It's just like "extra-maths". Well I'm self teach myself physics now and A2 maths along the side. I recommend if you have spare money or your parent care about your education then try to get tutor.
