    You'll be able to answer that Q in a matter of months. I personally don't see why not.

    It's never too late to start revising, there is no such thing. Even if someone told you it was too late, would you just go 'right that's it guess there's no point now then'? No of course you wouldn't, you just have to put in the effort so that you get the results you want, and if you do that then there is no reason you can't achieve what you want to. Best of luck

    True. Thanks. Just wanted to see if my aims are realistic. Do you think it can be done?

    May I ask, how many past papers did you do for physics and maths before you felt satisified that you understood the concepts and every type of question?

    Lol I went way overboard as I was trying to get full ums in everything. Think I did every physics paper and probably like 10-15 maths papers per module, that sort of region anyway

    As I want to increase my level of attainment from a B to around 95 UMS, I may attempt the same.

    Tbh (especially for maths) it became a bit pointless after a while, as most of the papers are similar enough that i was just answering the same questions with different numbers each time

    I'd advise spending less time in making notes (or read through notes you can find online), and doing more and more questions. However, this will work well enough.

    I really struggled with Biology, but I got an A simply because I cut down making detailed notes, and focused on short bullet-points that get straight to the point. Try doing questions right after finishing your notes (you can find some here as well as powerpoints).

    Some people like myself tend to revise better from notes written in my own handwriting than from printed notes (my own notes for two of my subjects are condensed amalgamations of a revision guide and the textbook)

    That is very true. I wasted hours (and days in fact) of revision time during my GCSEs as I was on exam discussion threads all the time. Luckily my grades were unharmed but that was a bit blunder nonetheless.

    Fair enough. Have you also tried YouTube?

    This.

    Actually applying the knowledge will get you further than trying to memorise and "understand" the theory.

    You create far more connections between the material that way.

    Top advice from this guy.
