    I'm really worried about A levels, and I don't feel like I'm enjoying my summer because I'm so worried. What did you do at your time taking A levels to make them more manageable as well as making revision easier?

    Hi Daniel! These are my best A Level tips:
    • Make revision notes as you cover each topic, don't wait until the end of the year. Make your notes early so that you have them ready for when you start revision. Use the specifications for your subjects to make sure you haven't missed anything!
    • If you miss any lessons, make sure to find out what you missed as soon as you can.
    • Take advantage of any homework/revision help sessions, as they can be invaluable if you're struggling with anything!
    • Try to get your exam technique right early on. My teacher only explained how to properly answer my A Level Geography exam questions at A2, it would've been nice to know that for AS as well!
    • This one is probably obvious, but if you're finding anything difficult, ask for help straight away! Don't leave it until the exams are close as your teachers may be too busy to be able to help you (I found this out the hard way unfortunately).
    Please don't worry too much about A Levels! Yes, they can be challenging, but they are manageable, as long as you keep on top of your work and always make sure to ask if you're not sure. Best of luck!

    Yes, you can! As long as you're doing all your homework and keeping on top of your notes etc, then I don't see why you can't have breaks from time to time
