A-Level Advice and Tips watch

    • Thread Starter

    From many threads and people I've heard and read that the A-Levels are very difficult and they are one of the most important phases of somebody's life.

    What I'm requesting here is for every A-Level and former A-Level student to give tips and advice to tackle these A level subjects.(Other A level subject advice and tips are also welcome and appreciated )

    Thank you and good luck for the future for helping us potential and current A level Students.

    Ps:It would be awesome if you can provide website links for revision, etc.


    Work hard throughout the whole year and keep on top of work otherwise it will just keep building up. Try if you can to try and understand a topic you don't know as soon as you have trouble with it, otherwise you may find there's loads you can't do when it comes to the exam period.

    . Work hard from beginning I'm in AS and I let things pile up .. Now it's a big stress to understand new concepts and practise ..
    Just think of it as it's one day closer to my exams and what have you prepared for it today ??
    That's what I keep on letting my think .. So I don't get lazy .. Lol

    Good luck

    When you don't understand something fully, make sure you get it covered immediately rather than waiting for the revision period. You will get slaughtered if you approach A Levels with the same lackadaisical frame of mind as most people do with their GCSEs.

    From my experience, note taking has proven to be really effective. At school, take notes and when you get home use your revision guide, your school notes and the internet to make your notes more detailed and clear. Try and write in your own words because that way you will learn it better.
    Another thing that I should add is read around your subject. Your school textbook shouldn't be the only thing you read. And finally, make use of your teachers, ask them anything you don't understand as they will sit down and go through it with you. Don't move on to another topic until you've fully understood the previous topic.

    Oh and do LOADS of past papers. They are amazing and prepare you really really well for the real exam.
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
