    Hi guys,
    posted a thread before but didnt get any replies so i'm giving it another shot..
    I'll be taking my CIE exams for a levels(as and a2) next year in Biology, Chemistry, and Mathematics. my goal is to achieve A's in all three subject so i can qualify for advanced entry at uni (and skip an year in the process).
    as i will be studying independently i need some help choosing from the resources. CIE have a resources section on their website:

    Biology
    http://www.cie.org.uk/programmes-and...ement_status|#

    Maths
    http://www.cie.org.uk/programmes-and...ement_status|#

    Chemistry
    http://www.cie.org.uk/programmes-and...ement_status|#

    I wanted to ask current/former CIE students in these subjects which textbooks they have used/recommend. which would be the most useful if i am aiming for the highest marks...Any other useful resources you might suggest


    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Also i think chemistry might be the most awkward subject to prepare for due to the practical assignment. hopefully will be able to organise to use a lab at the local school where i'll be taking the exam. how many hours do you recon would i need to be adequately prepared for the practical assessment?

    The Cambridge endorsed books are the most reliable ones
    Also, you can find many websites where they offer notes and further explanations for these subjects
    I don't take biology but for math, examsolutions is a really good site and for chemistry it would be chemguide.co.uk
    There are sites where you can be slightly taught how to perform practicals for biology and chemistry
    http://labskills.co.uk/a-level-labsk...ogy/index.html
    http://labskills.co.uk/a-level-labsk...try/index.html
    You can also find YouTube videos where they perform salt analysis and titration which usually comes up as a question in chemistry
    I have only done AS Maths and Chemistry so that's how much I can help you
    However, if you need any more help, you can ask me and if it's about A2, I will ask my friends doing A2 and let you know 😊😊
