    How can I achieve A* in these 4 subjects? I'm aiming to do computer science at Cambridge and am considering these A-Levels. I'm going to join Y12 in Sept 2017, so I'll do the new A-Levels.

    It's too early to think about A-levels now, get your GCSEs sorted out first :P

    I'm starting Y12 at the same time as you and I will be doing the same a levels. I got some advice from my brother's friend.

    Firstly, work hard and get on top of the workload as soon as you start because then you won't be rushed.

    Additionally, don't beat yourself up if you don't quite understand a principle because the step from gcses to a levels is big.

    Finally, don't give up if you are struggling. Ask your teachers and your fellow classmates for help (might seem embarrasing but that is what got him his 3A*s and an A in his A levels).

    I hope that will help both of us.
