    Results day 2016 didn't go as planned :
    D - Geography
    E - History
    E - Sociology

    I was hoping for better grades as I wish to study law in university and would need AAB next year. Throughout AS I didn't feel as if I was struggling, consistently achieving high grades in homework and my mock exams. I did not put enough work in for my exams in the summer. So, next year I will be resitting and doing my A2! Does anyone have any tips or advice for me, how much homestudy I should be doing etc. It will be greatly appreciated!!

    There isn't a required amount of home study to do. It will depend on you and how you work. Quality over quantity. Make yourself some timetables to help you get through it all and start revising early.

    Any tips on revising for these subjects? What I've been doing obviously hasn't worked, although I didn't put as much time in as I should've!

    Again very dependent on how you work. What helps you to understand and remember things? I like to go over the same things over and over and sometimes read around it to understand better. Doing timed past papers also helps. You already say that you didn't put in as much time as you did so work on that. Unfortunately there is no magic solution.

    I'm thinking about doing around 2 hours of study a day in my free periods or at home. Keep reading around to try stay on top of the work. I'm not really sure what works for me as I didn't revise for my GCSEs and achieved As and Bs (A Levels is a whole new ball game). I think my main mistake last year was that I didn't attempt any past papers for revision or work on my time management for each question (all of my papers were the new specification for WJEC).
