    So I am starting AS Levels in September: Biology, Chemistry, Maths and English Literature. I have had 2 months of chilling and fun so I am more than ready to start work. What would be the best way to prepare for these challenging subjects. I've read the novel we'll be studying in the first term and I've been practicing some maths but thats it. Also if anyone has any tips for ALevels then please let me know

    I would say no. Just make sure you do plenty of revision once the AS exams come about.

    I can't speak for literature, in terms of what books to read and what not.

    Necessary? No. Sensible? Yes. If you can get the maths books they're easy to start.

    What I would recommend to you is to work though the year, and keep on top of it. If you don't get something, don't think you can deal with it later, because unlearnt and unsure material will build up around exam time. You'll thank yourself massively if you can do that. Good luck!

    The more you read about your subject the easier time you will have. It's a great advantage to have, specially if you're aiming for the really high grades.
