    Everyone who is doing Advanced Subsidiary level knows that the exams are almost a month away, I am doing Biology, Chemistry and Physics (as well as maths, but that's okay..) I am doing Unit 1, 2 and 3 for all of them and I am not sure how to revise. For the unit 1exams I looked at videos, at the books I have and did a little bit of past papers. One of my friends said I should focus on past papers especially for chemistry because the questions all have the same concept and most of them are repeated.
    I am not sure what to do or where to start from. I just want to get the exams over with. I am aiming for C's and above. I already started revising physics from a revision guide my friend told me about, and when I'm done with it I will start doing all the past paper questions I can, but that's only for physics.
    Where can I find good revision websites for other subjects?
    Any other suggestions or what can I do, and how to not stress out will be great.

    (p.s. I am doing Edexcel)
    thank you in advance!

    I use this website called physics and maths tutor (but they do every subject - well almost every subject). They have all the notes and analysed examboard specifications.

    From now until Thursday I'm doing a subject each day, e.g. Red,Amber,Green for each part of the specification and then I'll prioritise the bits i struggle with.

    Then next monday I'll be doing past papers for the rest of the week.

    Yeah I use that website for Past papers.. But does that work for you? Should I do a different subject everyday ? then by the end of the week I'll go over the hard bits? but won't that take a long time if I'm doing every topic in every unit for every subject?
    Oh and how many hours will you / should I be spending everyday?

    What subjects are you doing, and would you by any chance be interested in studying together?

    Get the revision guides and make sure you cover the content thoroughly. For chemistry watch Erintoul on youtube! Use the examsolutions website for maths. Make sure you print out a ton of past papers go through them and mark them after! Make some flash cards with recurring questions and key points from the mark scheme. Don't you have more than a month? Don't AS exams start in may?

    Yes I do, but I'm probably gonna waste at least a week stressing out or procrastinating, but thank you! will check the Erintoul on youtube out. Yes definitely for past paper, writing the recurring questions is a very smart idea. Thank you.

    It's been working for my mock exams, so I'm just carrying on my routine.
    It does take a long time if you are uncertain on a large amount of the specification, but most of mine is on Amber or green, so I'll be spending less time on it, because I know it already.

    I plan to spend about 3 hours each unit, so 6 hours a day.

    And for the last question yes, but the only subject I do that you do is maths.
