Hey everyone,

AS's diet go so well, A in French, B in physics , biology, and maths and a D in chemsitry.
I more or less started school in January so I guess that gives me some leeway as to last year.
This year though I am looking to do much better and hopefully achieve my predicted grades of A*AAAB
With A* in biology and B in Physics.

I am plannig to retake the whole of chemistry but I have been told that I would also have to redo the AS coursework, I don't mind but I'd just like to confirm. I wasn't advised to continue with 5A2s but it's too late to change my mind now.

I reslised that I can't keep switching from subject to subject and when I revise, I tend to stick to a subject for 2-3 weeks before even taking care of the other ones, I used to be really bad at chemsitry just a month ago ( E's in my mocks , but I'm achieving an average of 50/60 right now (with OCR) I'm finding chemistry repetive and easy to deal with right now.

It's the same with Maths where a few past papers could help boost my grade.

However, I am very very concerned with biology, what used to be my strongest subject is now my kryptonite. I don't even know where to start. I feel as though the approaches to chemistry and maths won't work with biology and I haven't even started the second unit (also OCR).

To sum it up, how can I juggle these a levels while making biology my priority to get an A*? Should io just quickly skim through a revision guide and try and not down key stuff on the spec and then go straight to past papers? Will this method help me be ready for the unexpected questions that come up in unusual contexts?

Any advice on tackling this would be much appreciated

Thanks

Prioritize the ones that will take the longest to learn and do lost of past papers ect some people say A2 is harder but im doing the sciences and maths and I find A2 easier than AS just because after AS you're pretty much used to the level of study.
