GCSEs, AS levels and now finally A2. How is everybody going to approach this year - same as before or a drastic shape up of your routine?

Using revision skills I learnt from AS for a large amount of work last year did a lot of hard work that wasn't really that beneficial

I'm not going to leave everything to the last minute, cos that was stresss.
Surprisingly I managed to pull it off in 3 of my subjects (AAB), unfortunately it didn't work for my 4th which I got an E in, so I'm not gonna take that risk next year.

Im going to recap over AS stuff and then as soon as year 13 starts revising 3-4 hours per subject per week not including homework and practical work. But the problem is i need to chose between physics and Philosophy & Ethics before my interview?

Little and often revision everyday, keep on top of the workload and you'll be fine

I really struggle managing my time! I've tried revision time tables, staying in school for an extra couple of hours but seem to lose concentration :/ Seriously don't know how im gonna do next year as well!

You certainly don't need revision timetables as its a matter of real discipline

Having achieved AABB for my AS, I now need to decide which B should go for A2. English Lit is most likely to go, as I enjoy maths more. But maths was already a struggle at AS for me, as I stayed back late most nights and done a ridiculous amount of past papers. Next year - should I keep maths - I will relentlessly revise and practise from September! Also I need to be more efficient in terms of how I study; I need to see more for the time and effort put in. Other than that, I'll do more of the same for Politics and Philosophy as the A grades show that what I'm currently doing is working

For any linear subjects that I take to A2: Make up questions and practice with sample papers (I wish there were more of them...) to get better at exam technique. Get teachers to mark me as harshly as possible, seeing as me and most of my friends' final grades were below the grades in our mocks and the grades that our teachers had given us all year. Drop some of the extracurriculars and revise from day 1 (though I pretty much did that for AS).

That being said, my revision was too inconsistent - it partly wasn't my fault, but I should have anticipated and prepared better for things that occurred in the year and stopped me revising. So I'll do that next year for things that I'm guessing will come up. And I've found a good revision timetable website this year, so I'll make a revision timetable that I can stick to. I'm also using what's left of the summer to read around/revise in advance for the one subject I'll definitely take to A2.

... Still not bitter or anything

I'm starting on my notes next week, but 2/3 of my A2 subjects are linear so a new specification and I do rely heavily on the student room and get revising for revision notes and think that this was a major downfall in preparing for my AS as they weren't as many notes accommodating to the aqa English language and psychology spec. I know I shouldn't rely on the internet for my revision but it's what helped me get my good GCSE grades :/
