    So basically our teachers told us to buy our A-Level textbooks and all they really gave us to work with is the exam boards, and considering that the A-Levels are changing this year I'm really confused as to which textbooks to get. So if anyone can link me to good/the right textbooks, that would be great thanks.

    Biology: AQA
    Chemistry: AQA
    Maths: Edexcel

    I couldn't find them online for certain, but i know if you go into a Waterstones or WHSmith they'll have them, and in Waterstones at least they say "new spec" on the cover. This is AQA, I don't know of edexcel.

    Thanks, I asked around in WHSmith a few days ago and they were of no help 😂 I'll give Waterstones a try though, hopefully I'll find the right ones ^-^

    I'm doing biology and chemistry this year, both AQA too. I got the latest edition for each. For biology I got the Hodder textbook, that's the name of the publisher. For chemistry I got the Oxford one. hope this helps

    In WHSmith I actually picked up the Oxford ones for Biology and Chemistry but then I started doubting myself because the lady who worked then had no idea either haha (・Д・)ノ Thanks for the help ^-^

    you're welcome, well the ones I bought were recommended by my college, especially Hodder for biology. I think Oxford seems good too though, so I don't think you'd be at a disadvantage if you ended up with Oxford for both, imo
