I will be doing my AS-level examination on October/ November. (Cambridge board)
I haven't done any Chem or Bio at GCSE so i'm kinda new to it (but i started learning them and i chose it because i was interested in both the subjects)
P.S: I've got only 5 months for the exam! ><
Any Tips/Advice on how to study for the AS-level chem & bio examination? (I'm a visual learner)
How to achieve an A/A*?
How to stop Procrastinating?
When to start Revision?
Which revision guide should i get?
Should i just learn whatever is there in the spec inside out?
How to get an A* on AS-Level Chemistry and Biology? Watch

A*'s don't exist at AS level, but they do at A2 (as far as I'm aware of). I also don't think you can sit exams in Ocrtober, only in summer term, between May and June? (Someone correct me if I'm wrong).
Biology is about understanding the concepts and applying them. There is an incredible amount of content in it so be prepared to manipulate different revision methods.
Chemistry, once you understanding the concept, it's practice practice practice.
Stop procrastinating by thinking of results day and getting a grade you didn't want. However, do take breaks during revision!
Revision guide should be one endorsed by your exam board.
Yes, the spec contains everything that the examiners could possible examine you on.
