    For the past week I've revised chemistry AS and I'm already getting annoyed with the large amount of content. How do you deal with it - especially considering I'm going to be doing 4 subjects.

    Oh I see How many pages do you recommend I should do per week (I revise 4 or 5 days a week - considering I burnt out very easily from revising 24/7)

    That's good to hear

    I wouldn't split it into a certain number of pages, instead split it into topics and focus of just learning that topic.

    What other subjects are you doing?

    Alright. Biology, maths and economics. Do you have any tips/ advice for these subjects?

    Yeah. Work really hard because it is a lot harder than GCSE

    Yeah I did both Maths and Economics.

    If you do 1 chapter a week in Maths you'll be finished very soon and one topic of Macro and 1 of Micro a week is more than enough.

    I dont advice cramming like me 😂

    Hiya!
    I wanted to know whether you used a maths textbook for revision or did you use a different resource?

    Literally almost had a heart attack from the amount of RedBull I drank revising for this chem **** and I only ended up with a C - so much for all those A*s in science GCSE, them As in the coursework, meant nothing
    Chemistry requires a looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ot of practice and application and memory work.be prepared for it to take up like half your time. And if you're doing biology as well only God can save you then I'm sorry brah I'll pray for you tho <3

    Lol thanks
    I crammed chemistry unit 2 and 3 the night before and came out with an A* - funny cuz I did way better compared to unit 1 which I spent the year revising for But I got angry when there was no titration calculations in that exam cuz I spent the night mostly revising it. I'm never drinking coffee/energy dinks ever again - cuz it made me fall asleep when cramming for unit 2 and 3 for physics - ended up not getting time to revise unit 3 at all but somehow got 2 marks off an A - I thought I got a U lol

    But Im going to try and revise propely and not cram this year (hopefuly)

    daym saaannnn - yeah you see my final AS grades were BBCC in bio, computing, chem and phys

    and i don't get that cos all year I was getting As - like 90% + in both bio and comp but then i somehow ****ed up in the real thing, I got 92% ums in unit 1 and a D in unit 2 oops

    and then chemistry almost killed me - i did the salters advanced course tho, lowkey didn't finish the syllabus :lol: i was still getting Bs all year :hmmmm: I got a B in unit 1, D in unit 2 lmao :teehee: no one got an A rip

    those energy drinks had me twitching I was about to fly in the exam :lol:

    and physics - m8 that C is an A*+ to me I thought I was gonna fail for sure x_x

    and then don't even get me started on A2- honestly that must be some form of established punishment in Hell allow it :lol:
