    So heres the deal Im in A2 and studying chem, physics and bio with AQA. I have 8 exams (exlcuding practical exams) including two retakes. I have completed all my notes and I wish to achieve all A's. However in past mocks i have only really been averaging B's and C's. What do you suggest I spend this last stretch doing to prepare other than past papers and reading over notes?

    Practice makes perfect! Even though different revision techniques work best for different people, by doing many questions, worksheets and questions from your book, you can soon find out exactly where you're going wrong :yep: . I would also highly recommend going through the online specification for the course. This gives you a bullet point list of exactly what you need to know, and can quickly highlight the points towards which you might want to tailor your revision
