    I've done my GCSE, just waiting for my results, i'm planning to go to King Edwards Five Ways/Aston depending on where i get in and whether or not i get the desirable grades. I've chosen Maths, Chemistry, Biology and Art. I know that Maths, Chemistry and Biology are very difficult even for those who are talented at it. Can someone please tell me when I should start revising if i want an A in those subjects? Also what is A-Level Art like?! Hard :confused:

    One thing I learnt in college the hard way is that you should start revising ASAP and STICK TO THIS. I told myself I would do so and didnt even make a week because I didnt stick to this. I regret it so much. Whenever you`ve had a lesson and learnt something, go over it constantly so it sticks in your head, that way you wont have to revise too much of it when its closer to exams.
    Hope that helps, good luck for your A-Levels!

    Hey, I answered a similar question here:
    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=2736117

    Also as you are going to a grammar school start now! I promise it'll pay off.

    Art at KEFW is great but hard. Its a lot of work but I used it as sort of stress relief as I enjoyed it way more than my other subjects. Experimentation is a big thing at AS so try as many different medias as you can. I would ask for the project title now though so you can start cause it is hard to cram it all in and they expect the 1st of the two projects done by the end of January, which seems like a long way away but its tough when you have mocks and things around the same time. Our title was "Who am I" which was alright cause its very broad and they don't mind whatever direction you want to take as long as it all links
    good luck

    Lmao everyone is going to do Biology, Chemistry & Maths/ okay I'm going to do those too 😝. I've just finished year 11 too. I'm pretty sure study, study, study is a must. I'm not really that scared rn cus I know that being really organised and prepared works. Also doing a bit of summer study helps
