    I'm studying bio, chem and psych,
    I would like to try and get A*AA for A2 but I am predicted A*AB. I'm not sure how much work I should be doing after school, and at what intensity- I know this is hugely subjective and very much a case of 'everyone is different', but any advice would be greatly appreciated? Do you think that it's too early to start past papers/ revise over past topics?

    I'd suggest consistency over intensity. Make sure you're keeping on top of everything, understanding stuff in lessons and doing all of the work being assigned to you. You should have mocks coming up before Christmas or in January, so work towards those. Rather than using past papers as there are only certain amounts of them, focus on textbook questions instead or make up your own. I recommend downloading a specification for each of your subjects and treating each criterion as a question, answer it. It's a good way to work, I've found.

    Personally, I spend a couple of hours everyday after school working, and I use my free periods, and spend a few hours over the weekend doing work, too. I review everything I've done in lessons, do homework, and add to my notes from my textbook.

    I made a thread similar to this a few months ago, you might find the replies helpful:

    I'm not doing as much as I've stated in this thread now though, I've relaxed a bit now
