Hi there, I'm in my first year of college studying for AS Levels. I'm doing Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths. I plan to drop Further Maths at A2. I got GCSE grades 2A's, 5B's and 1C (AABBBBBC). I want to do Medicine and it has been my life long dream, but I really need help on how I'm going to achieve AAA at A Levels.
QUESTION: What are some revision tips that help to understand topics and retain the information?
QUESTION: Is getting AAA hard?
I'm prepared to put the work in and revise every day. But would a university allow AAB????
I'm confident in Biology and Maths, but Chemistry is hard and I understand some stuff but not all.
Look out for access schemes if you have a disadvantaged background, as they can reduce the grades to ABB-AAB. Pretty much all medical schools now are AAA, it's very competitive unfortunately :/

I recommend Chemguide and this YouTube channel (commended by the guy who made Chemguide): Allery Tutors Chemistry
The guy explains concepts really well
But as the user above has mentioned, past papers is key - revise the mark schemes.
