    Start very early, from day one as a matter of fact, use free periods more productively than I did in year twelve & design a more effective revision timetable.

    well considering in economics all of as and a level are combined i am just doing the work they set me considering thats what youre suppose to do? How people think it'll be harder is beyond me. The workload is the same if not easier. They have to fit in everything from as and a2 and considering a2 is usually harder that means a2 will be more involved. Also the as is combined with the a2 work so it shouldn't be too hard
    You're making no sense.

    I'd advise to start revising much earlier than whatever you did for AS, personally I started around April but I will probably start revising year 12 seriously in Jan/Feb to start revising year 13 around March/April hopefully. It's going to be tough for everyone, just don't leave it too late.

    Good idea, so are you going to swap what yoy focus on every few months i.e. do year 13 work then a couple months later do year 12 work then do year 13 again etc. etc.?

    That's a good plan too, but for those who did use their free periods effectively what would you suggest for them or who created a effective revision timetable what would you suggest ?

    Thanks for the replies everyone.

    Honestly, it doesn't seem like it's going to be that much more difficult. Two of my subjects are not linear and so I think that's probably why I'm saying that but during next summer I'm going to go over biology AS and chemistry AS constantly and during free's I will be doing that as well as A2 stuff.

    Like GCSEs if you didn't do any early but more in depth.
    Productivity and time management is key.
    If you do mock exams at the end of the first year for your linear subject, treat it like it's your real exams so you know where to work on!
