At GCSE it was Bitesize, but, what now? A-levels are very unstable if I can put it that way... One minute you're ahead and drinking hot chocolate in the common room during free periods, and the next you either laugh or cry histerically in the corner and make everyone else terrified of you... It's only been 2 weeks. I'm behind and really need to catch up this weekend so please tell me A-level help sites. I study: Business (A-level), Creative Writing (A-level) and Spanish (A-level). ^.^ Thank you in advance.

Hey, from my experience, I've found that for the new spec subjects, physical copies of textbooks and/or revision guides are much more useful than online resources. However, YouTube is pretty useful as there are videos for nearly everything, and if you just search 'A-level (*insert name of subject*) resources on Google, you might come across some resources that other colleges and sixth forms have shared publicly on their websites so that everyone can use them.
I've heard that websites such as DuoLingo, Lingoscope, LanguagesOnline etc are really useful for languages. In addition, there are apps such as Quizlet and Studyblue where you can make your own flashcards for vocab and grammar (or even key terms for your other subjects).
For business and creative writing, it might be best if you purchase the textbooks and/or revision guides because you can't really go wrong with them as you know they're relevant. You can then use these to makes your own notes which could eventually turn into your own study guide!
Just search #studyblr on tumblr, instagram or pinterest for some inspiration!
Past papers are also an extremely useful resource, but its best to save these until closer to the exams.
One last thing- its always handy to have a copy of the specifications for each of your subjects which you can find on the websites of the exam boards. The specifications tell you everything you need to know very concisely. Sometimes you might see something on there that your teacher hasn't mentioned!
So basically, there is not one main resource for A-levels (with the exception of maths and sciences and maybe others than I'm not aware of), but there are many that you will have to discover on your own, but I hope that you will find some of my suggestions helpful!
Good luck! iimikaii
