    Go for it! You'll have to work really hard to get good GCSEs if you want to go to Oxford whereas Cambridge look more at Year 12 results (I don't know how they'll do it if they scrap AS-levels ) but I'm sure if you put yor mind to it you'll be fab!

    Thanks!
    The thing is , now there are no year 12 exams and you have to do them all at the end of year 13 (As and A2). So what will Cambridge look at to make their decisions? :dontknow:

    I'm fairly sure that Oxbridge expect you to take the AS exams in year 12 anyway, even if you don't get a qualification from it.

    Solomon papers are generally harder than Edexcel. Same content, but harder.

    Something I do for revision is create my own quiz's and tests, write the answers on a separate piece of paper and then ask a family member or friend to quiz me. This is great because I revise as I create the quiz and write the answers as well as when I take the quiz myself. This is best for subjects where lots of memorising is involved like biology ☺️

    Hello, same problem
    I'll advise about maths as it's the easiest subject where you can get a good grade. I would personally do a session of past papers per week (eg c3,c4,m1 June 13 now, jan 13 next week - there are enough of these sessions for you till May/June to do. If you run out of papers, use Solomon). In Maths solving past papers and maybe revision exercises at the end of the set of chapters in the book will be enough for a good job.

    Use Sunday as relaxed day. Revise your short notes about each module (for my business I write one topic per paper so that I have a small set of notes per unit) and then social life.
    However, I personally said goodbye to social life and I don't regret, because it helps me to concentrate more on self-improvement..
    Good luck
