    Just received my AS Level results. They were decent but not exactly what I wanted. I achieved AABC though revised more than some of my peers who received AAAA . While I'm not aiming for 4 A's, I need 3 As to get into my favourite course, AAB-ABB to get into my second choice. I really don't understand what I did wrong, revised since mid February, at least 4 hours per day, could have done more past papers but still did them and literally knew the whole text book ( I take History, Geography and Pscych) back to front for all of my subjects. I know a lot of people are naturally very intelligent and don't need to put in as much work but I would like some advice on revision techniques/what to do next year to make sure I don't find myself in clearing or worse. Thanks!
