    Hi,

    The purpose of this thread is to share my A-Level story with members of this website and to track my own progress throughout the upcoming years.

    I'm currently studying Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry at A-Level, as well as an EPQ on Physics. For my first year, I am predicted A's, but as my Physics and Chemistry are linear A-Levels, I will be aiming for A*'s at the end of the 2 years.

    I will be updating daily/weekly on revision, assignments, classes and everything in between, so I hope you enjoy reading! I also hope that this helps you to gain some motivation yourself to starting studying and aim for the highest grades in your studies! I'm happy to offer my help on any of these subjects if you need it, either send me a message or reply to this thread and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

    Happy Studying!

    I've just started A levels and I am studying Chemistry, Biology, Psychology.

    Which A levels are the hardest and should I just spent time reading after doing homework?

    I was told that Chemistry was one of the, if not, the hardest A-Level you can take and I would have to say that I agree, everyone is different and some things come naturally to some people, just do whatever works for you, I would suggest you cover the material you have covered in class, again at home, until you feel like you fully understand it, what you do in your spare time is up to you!

    Bar FM, we're doing the same subjects. It's a little early but hopefully you do well in them.
    You've probably already heard of it, but physicsandmathstutor.com is a really helpful resource.

    It wouldn't be a full story without the beginning! Oh believe me, my teachers have already been pushing us to use that website, that and Khan Academy!

    Good luck to you!

    How are you studying at the moment? And how many hours are you studying for per subject per day?

    I go over everything that we have done in class (reading notes, doing harder questions), I'd say around 2 hours a night, but a lot of my independent study is done in free periods at college, where I will re-write notes and make flashcards.

    Ooh we're the same for maths and FM. Is chemistry 21st century? That's what I'm doing. Physics is the same board as chemistry for me.

    Thanks, best of luck to you too

    Is that 2 hours per subject or per night?
