    My mocks are starting on December 4th. Do you have any advice to help me achieve my best in the mocks? How I should revise and when I should start revising, things like that.

    Start revising now, but if you can pick up really quickly, 2 weeks before your mocks will be good enough. Definitely remember to do some past year questions, but not all, leave some for AS itself (unless you're so hardworking you wanna do it twice haha) What subjects are you taking?

    Isn't that a little bit early? In my school they are always after the Christmas holidays. Anyway start revising now if you wanna do well in them and make life easier / stressful.

    Association is always good, use colours, songs or even aftershave/perfumes to denote different subjects/concepts. Don't just read notes. That's never any good.

    Cool. Not very sure about art subjects, I did maths, further maths, physics and economics. Personally I struggle with reading subjects so I usually start subjects like economics a lot earlier than the others. Anyway, good luck!

    How would you revise for the reading subjects?

    As for economics, I'd make acronyms since there are quite a lot of things to be memorised. I write and rewrite essays to remember better. Not sure about Literature and History, although I've heard from my friends that the answering technique (as in coherence with respect to the question) is really important.

    Past papers are definitely helpful. And plan out longer answers for subjects like history. Don't waste vtime writing them in full unless you are struggling with structure. Quizzes are good. Make your own if you can't find any online

    I plan to start revising for my mocks now- the sooner the better in my opinion. I'm trying to use a variety of different methods- mind maps, flash cards, loads of practice questions etc. Only reading and copying the text book is definitely not the best method
