    Do some extra reading around your subjects. It sounds boring but through the first year of A-levels I didn't, and things were much harder. When I did it during my second year, I found that it put everything I'd learned into context and that helped my understanding! It also means you have some extra information in your head, which you can use to wow the examiner and grab a few extra marks; It could be the difference between a B and an A!

    What kind of extra reading did you do? And why subjects did you take? Because I'm doing English Lit, Geography and Psychology and I don't know what extra reading I should do? Thanks
