    I'm doing English Lit(AQA- Aspects of tragedy), Maths (OCR MEI), Economics (AQA) and Business(AQA) If anyone could give me tips,ideas on how to improve revision/how to read around the subject/manage time or mentoring or any form of help I'd be so grateful x

    Maths: Past papers, past papers and more past papers. Do ALL of them for every module. Preferably twice minimum. What I did was do all of the past papers once (after revising the topic), made a note of the questions that I thought were difficult/could not get. Then revised only those ones the 2nd+ times round (I was left with maybe 10-20 questions to do which is only a few hour's work). This way, you can nail the exam technique and make sure you don't have gaps in your knowledge. Worked well for me (A*A* in maths, further maths).

    Thank you very much. I see how that can help. I guess I need to try and get ahead so i can finish C2 and M1 but that sounds very effective and I will try doing that.
