    As with maths the general strategy is to go through the theory in aid with questions and then do questions, as many as you can find and many more.

    Since I will likely be living and breathing A levels as I have for the past week, my question now stands : "How do you best learn chemistry/physics for a guaranteed A* at A-level?"
    Please note this is not a question about memory; which method is better to
    Considering many methods :
    doing questions
    reading theory
    visualizing theory
    flash cards
    summarizing
    (no I'm not saying teaching others)
    specification aimed theory
    past papers spam (I'm doing the new spec so I have none)
    Writing out to be learnt information
    any other method that was found excellent?



    Goals:
    I write neatly
    I write adequate answers
    I absolutely answer every question within less than the recommended time.
    I make no errors
    I recall the right answer to the right question
    Finally I receive an A* in the A-level subjects

    What exactly should be the procedure: tips, hints?
    (remember I will be pretty much studying all day everyday)

    Again back to maths now, I have realized that at times I may learn a specific formula(this is an example for maths) and without any problems I am able to complete all questions without any issues using it and remember x for example
    other times this same thing happens except I manage to get stuck in multiple ways (irrelevant of difficulty) and end up fixing it myself after time. Is there any advice for maths to avoid a pitfall like that?

    You answered all your questions, the path to all A*'s is a lonely one you make your own success this gets you all A*'s. Ask for help with things when needed, saves time.
