    Winners are too busy to be sad,
    too positive to be doubtful,
    too optimistic to be fearful,
    and too determined to be defeated.

    You can do it if you put your mind to it. Imagine how great you'll feel waking up to 5-10 A*s.

    Dependant on the subject (Science subjects), there are often answers that you can learn off by heart which means easy marks.
    Other than that, do lots of past papers. If you are perfect at them, you should be perfect at the actual exam.
    In terms of revision, set yourself a timetable; either do an hour of this followed by an hour of that or give yourself a deadline, ie a week to be flawless at Geometry.

    Also, make sure that your parents are interested in most of your work (this becomes especially important at A level).

    Hmm, I'd say that's really something you need to decide on. I have no idea how good you already are, how you learn, how much you do in school etc.

    What I did during my GCSEs was constantly change how much I was doing in relation to what I thought I should be doing; sometimes I'd need to do more as I was behind where I wanted to be, sometimes I was ahead of where I should be. Oftentimes this happened at different times for different subjects so the times averaged out.
    Edit: I recommend thinking about times not as per day, but as per week. Sometimes you will have an off-day, or will want/need to do something else which is time consuming; this just means that you should do more on other days, not have to do it on that day.

    So I'd say, keep an open mind as to how much you should be doing per week and keep on changing this.

    Bit early to start revising isn't it? Don't kill yourself over it yet. I didn't start revision till easter and did quite well (9A*2A). But make sure it's ONLY revision you leave till then. Plug any gaps in your knowledge up before then so revision will be a cinch. I imagined the disappointment of getting less than 10A* (yeah, I screwed it up) and that made me want to revise a lot more!
