    1. Remember to actually revise for your applied maths modules
    2. Don't expect good grades the first time round for your essay subjects, a level essays are on another level
    3. Actually do some work during your free periods
    4. Be organised, you'll come to thank yourself for being organised when revision comes around
    5. Always print off the spec and tick off sections once you have completed them (my teacher missed a few topics for economics and I would have been screwed)
    6. Always pick 4 AS, regardless. I ****ed up there
    7. Just enjoy your subjects, it may seem daunting but you're there to study and enjoy what you're studying!

    Feel free to add any more tips to the list or ask questions below.

    Ps. I done English lit, economics and maths

    Some good tips there!

    A couple of extra tips:

    1. Take advantage of any homework and/or revision help sessions available to you. They can be invaluable if you're struggling with any aspect of the work, want to improve your exam technique etc.
    2. If you're struggling to get organised or motivate yourself, try using a revision timetable. I recommend structuring it by deciding which topics to study/revise each day, rather than allocating topics to specific times.
    3. Always ask for help if you need it, don't risk falling behind just because you don't understand a topic and are too afraid to ask for help!

    The most important point of all time.........MAKE SURE YOU REGULARLY REVIEW YOUR CURRENT AND PAST CLASSWORK/NOTES. It is seriously important as It will make sure that you understand and remember all aspects of the course (allowing you to just practise past papers during exam revision times)! Also you may be tempted by friends to mess around in free periods, don't be. These periods are given to you for a reason-to get your homework done and any extra work/practise that could be done on top! Hope this helps!
