    I did too much revision if anything, probably more for GCSE than at A level, but only for the subjects I got A*s in. So my results might not look particularly great on a place like this but I was proud of UMS anyhow. In general I just copied facts over and over till I remembered them and did past papers.

    BTEC Business - Distinction* (apparently = 2A*'s, but no one thinks that. Would've done a GCSE in the subject if my school offered it)

    Only revised during study leave by reading through revision guides... Should've revised more. Tried this tactic at AS, didn't work quite so well.

    Do you writing notes help? Thank you for your advice
    Definitely! Plus notes are easier to go over afterwards (as opposed to textbooks), seeing as you can make them more concise. No worries

    Ahaha, that's alright - I probably did a few hours a day during easter on average, but in reality I tend to do long periods of studying then long periods of procrastination

    When I was really close to exams, it was literally just past papers & looking over the notes on the stuff I really wasn't sure of.

    Ditto, although nowadays it feels like I spend most of my time with nada motivation AS are fun, although I'm doing 5 (6 if you want to count an EPQ) so they're a tad stressful at times..

    Why thank you Haha, you may have done if you're into MUN.

    good enough results to get me into the best university in the country.
    Maybe because the A-level system is changing GCSE results will become a more important part of your application, but I have seen some of my friends with 11A*'s get rejected at Oxbridge.

    Basically if you f*** up your aptitude test for Oxbridge, no number of A*'s at GCSE will save you, and you still won't make the cut. Also interviews play a big role (especially Oxford).
