    Hiya, I do biology and chemistry (A2 at the moment) and got high As for both at AS. For chemistry, I made some brief notes, making sure I understood everything I was writing down. Then I practised like mad!! Including all the past papers. For biology, I found I was spending too long on revision notes so I ended up writing notes from several sources (school notes, textbook etc.) straight into the cgp revision guide which I found was much quicker and probably gave me a better understanding than writing notes out from one source and spending ages on them. Then I did past papers and made sure I was writing all my mistakes into the revision guide.

    Also, if you don;t get a topic, read it from as many sources as possible and I think that helped me.

    Hope this helps! xx

    • Record yourself talking and listen to it when commuting or something to remember every little detail
    • Past paper questions
    • If I didn't have time to do a past paper question I used to bullet point my paragraphs
    • In an exam I used to do a quick plan before starting the essay so I had an idea of the structure
    Hope this helps!
