    How many hours a day did you revise for A-level subjects and what are the best revision techniques? I'm going to study all sciences and maths, so could students who have studied any one of these subjects please respond.

    How can I achieve A*s in all of these subjects? I'm especially worried about physics, because I mean, I got an A* in gcse but the A-level spec looks sooo complex..(I'm studying AQA for all sciences except Chem(OCR) and Maths is Edexcel)

    Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

    You can also find the Exam Thread list for A-levels here and GCSE here. :dumbells:

    I am doing the exact same subjects as you and have completed them to AS level so far. Getting A*'s at A-Level is much harder to do than obtaining them at GCSE. As you may be aware, A-Level content is much more in depth than GCSE and so it is very important to ensure that you understand everything. I can't really tell you how you can get straight A*'s (it's all down to how you work best), but I would recommend actually revising throughout the entire academic year (i.e. going over the work and making sure you know it and can understand it). Last minute revision doesn't really work for A-Levels. I'm not saying you should be locked up in your room studying 24/7-you can still have a social life, but it is important that you prioritize your studies. The key is understanding concepts at A-Level (especially in the sciences) as the exams are always application based. I would recommend talking to your teachers about your ambitions and I'm sure they can advise you best, as they have probably dealt with A-Level students for years. This is my opinion and I hope it helps.
