I do English Lit, History and Philosophy. At AS I got BCD, I was predicted AAB. I'll explain all the things I did wrong in my AS Levels! Don't spend all your frees in coffee shops. It wastes so much money and you can use them productively at home or school getting homework done and writing notes. Take coffee and snacks to school so you won't have cravings! I wouldn't do more than 10hrs week at a part time job. I was doing 30 some weeks and getting my homework done slap dash when I finished in the evenings! Actually read the books for Literature - about 3 or 4 times. You have to know them in so much detail so don't rely on spark notes! Do as many essays as possible at home and get your teacher to mark them. I didn't do enough practise essays so in Lit, I knew the content at A grade level but my essay style was sooo wrong which is why I got a D.
But also make sure you relax, because Alevels are quite stressful but honestly, year 12, despite the shoddy grades I got at the end, was one of the best years at school I had! And even though I got BCD, they don't actually count on the new spec!!
