Hey! Decided to start this thread to invite you guys to my journey. I started my as level revision late- a day or two of revision before my AS exams. Since I started revision far too late as a whole, cycle begins repeat itself as there's no way to have an significant enough amount of revision time when you have other exams to worry about. So yeah, I completely messed up. And I was aiming to do Medicine. Bless my soul.

I study Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths. I took C1 and FP1 last week and looked up the unofficial mark scheme.
C1-B
FP1-D

Guess I'm not doing year 2 FM a level.

Anyway, I have my C2 tomorrow and Biology on Thursday. Chemistry on Friday and loads more exams after the holiday. I'm half way through Biology and haven't even started Chemistry.

I'll update you guys soon.



Also, please don't be foolish like me and do the things I'm doing- even if a miracle had happened and outcomes were good, don't risk it.

Ok. So finished my C2 exams and i think i got a B. My mind went blank for some of the questions-even the easy one but i think i did ok. I just need work harder for last module which M1-which i suck at.

My aim is to get B in Maths, Further Maths and Chemistry and A in Biology. Don't think that's going to happen but a girl can dream right?

Also, i'm sleep-deprived right now and i am going to be working the whole night to revise for my Biology exam which is tomorrow.

Good Luck to you guys.

Takes a lot work. What i do is i walk all over my room, talking to myself as well as teaching it to myself as if i was explaining it to a class until i get the information into my head. Also, i made flashcards with questions i made myself based on facts on each topic and and information i might forget. Good luck.

Like i said above, talking to yourself as if you're a teacher really happens. " Ok, so this is how Counter-Current system works...".

Also, write your own questions based on your notes, even the small details because they could come up as one or two markers.

Be physically active- revise while walking around.

And if you're feeling sleepy, go to sleep (set alarm if you want)- you will feel more alert and ready to learn.

That's my lazy way of studying. GOOD LUCK. Btw if you have AQA like me, we might as well revise for our retake as they are so damn specific with their answers based on a question which has multiple answers. My advice is to write every possible answer linked to the question-somehow get that in.

Pre-Biology exam. So stressed. I am suddenly overwhelmed by the fact that i will fail in the exam. I haven't even finished topic 4.

I really need to revise harder for the paper 2.

OK. It wasn't that bad but i waffled a bit and didn't use the correct terms- predicted grade-D for Biology. Also, i cried before my exam and realised i was so emotional because my period came- I KNEW I WASN'T SUCH A WEAK B*TCH.

Now studying for Chemistry.

I'm not actually too sure, there's not much difference at all! The B exam is tomorrow morning too... Really don't feel too confident, what about you?

I got myself a 99p A*/A grade revision guide/notes of ebay and it covered my entire AS and A2 subjects and it was in note form so it was so easy to revise which made the courses so easy for me. The ebay sellers name is bargaindealsdev if you interested, you can enter it into google and it will come up and all their notes for a ton of subjects are all 99p. They also have other subjects which are good too Hope that helps

I was predicted Ds and managed to get straight 4A s in my AS. I took the same subjects as you aside from further maths, which I replaced with Geog.

It is very possible and you can do it. Don't give up
