    I will be giving Maths, Further Maths, Physics, Chemistry and maybe Economics A2 this year,

    At the moment I am writing model definitions from past papers, organising spread sheets for marking etc. to help prepare.

    Does anyone have any general guidance advice as to how to do well, what points of the year I should have achieved x amount. What time period I should be 100% confident with all content etc.

    Thanks

    I would say to do well, drop 1 or 2 of the most (relatively) unnecessary subjects - you don't need to do that many.

    100% confident maybe under a month from the exam. With maths it's all about practice. Physics and chem, make notes where appropriate, practice maths questions there etc. Some parts are just about memory which can't be crammed, so take some time throughout the year to recap on key concepts/observations etc

    thank you for your post

    Can I ask do you devote certain days to particular subjects or study whatever you feel like whenever. I have a timetable that I go along but just want to ensure that I have everything sorted out

    More 'what needs attention most' gets it. I don't recall studying all 3/4 subjects every day each day, there may well have been subjects where I only focused on one for a day but it wasn't a regular occurence. Try your timetable, see what hapens, edit times if you need to or ditch it entirely.. whatever works best for you
