Hey, im doing my AS level now in Chemistry, Sociology, ICT and Business. The entry requirements for Architecture is AAA at full A-level in a Science/Maths and a Arts/Humanities.

Im doing a Science and a Humanities subjects. However, i dont think i can possibly get an A in Chemistry because its my weakest subject. can anyone recommend ways to pull my grade upto an A?

Does anyone know easier ways to get into Architecture in any of the Manchester universities.

Thank you.

I can't help too much in terms of architecture but I can give you some A-level chemistry advice

I'm with OCR so I will draw on my experience so far with their chemistry course. I have found that during the course of the year the best thing is to ensure you understand the concepts. For example mechanisms - make sure you have learnt them, understand them and can apply them. If you don't understand something then ask somebody! Peers, teachers - anyone you think will be of help.
Do extra questions out of the text book to help consolidate your learning, once again if you can't do something - ask!
I personally copy up class notes neatly during the year, so I can go over them another time. I learn quite effectively doing this. This may not be the case for you. If it isn't then have a look at how best you learn and adapt your studying accordingly.
Now...once we near exam time (I tend to call this easter or a week or two before) it's all about past papers!!! If you've worked through the year properly and understand the concepts you should only need to go over the details and then it's all about practice. Past papers, past papers, past papers - do each one a couple of times. Maybe make some revision cards as well if that kind of thing helps you. You could also gather a little group of friends to study together actively, i.e. talking through things, maybe making a big poster.

That's all I can really think of right now but to summarise
1. understand the concepts
2. ask questions
3. PAST PAPERS

Good luck, if you have any other quesitons then by all means ask
