I would revise my notes from my classes. Re-write them even in simpler format. Bullet points; so they are easier to remember. For maths I'de just do practice questions online. I'de do this in the library. If I had literally nothing to do I'de read philosophy/sociology journals online.

What did you get at AS and A2 if you've done them both?

My articles? What do you mean? I am at university now, studying economics/philosophy 50/50 and not doing particularly well due to mental illness I guess.

I studied economics/philosophy/sociology at A2, got an A* in philosophy because philosophy is my life.. Maths at AS. Ended up with a C at AS maths but that's because I was being a lazy bum and didn't revise it enough - A-level maths is boring though, university maths is where it is entertaining. Not just rote learning there but actual problem solving...

Thanks, although it didn't really benefit me. I'de say I over-achieved really.

- Review the work you've done each week and make sure you understand it.
- Rewrite noes to make them neater/colorful/easier to revise from later or make notes if you need to.
- Make a list of things things you need to work on and improve.
- Ask your teacher/look up anything you're unsure about.
- Practise questions?

This is what I said on another thread

Edit: Actually, are you the same person?

Oh I'm so sorry, I read 'write psychology/sociology articles' instead of 'read...' I'm so sorry.

Philosophy, not psychology. I don't like psychology. It is too micro for me. Psychology = microsociology.

But, I have wrote various essays in my own time on philosophy. Not really delved that deep into sociology though, but anyway...

Don't read around any subjects that you don't plan to study in uni. It's a waste of time. Don't read ahead either. To get the best possible grades, simply make sure you always understand fully everything you've covered and you've practised everything enough (where applicable). Be critical and evaluative of your performance etc. That's the most important part.
