    A level is tough but what revision techniques do you have, that you believe will help you get the best possible grades to move onto the next year/ university. And what grades do you want to achieve

    I want to achieve at least a grade 'B' although a grade A would be great!:bee::bee::bee::bee::bee::bee::bee::bee::bee::bee::smartass::smartass:. No mean/ rude or unpleasant comments please. Thanks

    My revision techniques- Recap over every topic and attempt exam questions in time conditions!

    Watching this thread for any useful tips.

    I usually just flick through past exam questions and write summary notes on each chapter.

    Stare into a textbook aimlessly for hours...

    Learn the content, do loads of past papers and go over where I went wrong in questions and textbook questions , make sure I understand the content and repeat. I hope to achieve A*AA. I'm resitting so I hope to do better this time round.
