    Hi guys,
    I am heading into year 11 in September and I really want to make the most of next year. I am working towards my aspirational targets of A's. Have you got any advice to best prepare myself for the upcoming year and what can I do to make sure I am consistently hitting targets.
    Kind Regards

    Work reasonably hard throughout the year, this will make revision so much easier. start making notes from the spec around Jan/Feb and aim to be on past papers by March. Other than that don't overwork at the start or you'll be burnt out by May.

    Hi, I'm also going into Year 11 in September. First of all, I would like to say that you can join the current Year 10 thread http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=3508493 and as soon as the new Year 11 thread is ready, I'll keep you updated (best if you follow me). In response to your question, the best way to prepare is to start making notes now for all subjects where possible and for content you haven't covered e.g Science Physics P3, you can make notes beforehand anyways which is better or make notes whilst you're covering the content. With those notes, it should be concise, so it should be as brief as possible and straightforward so that you can use them to learn the content. You then test your knowledge by doing past papers/specimen papers (check the specs) and mark them, don't cheat! After marking them and if there's any mistakes, do gap analysis - Go through weak topic areas and ensure you re-learn the content or if this is Maths you keep practising e.g if the topic you've struggled on is Trigonometry do a variety of questions and watch videos. If you do all this you will be fine and also make good use of available resources.

    Feel free to PM me regarding any inquiries.
