To get the A* in maths you need to get 180 UMS in C3/C4, and get 208 UMS in total (this year). With maths revison is really simple;you do every past paper you can find.

Find a study buddy, get any revision guides that your exam board publishes. Practise everything, do as many past papers as you can. Really the only way to pull up the grades at this point is to practise everything.

For new style chemistry I found the best method is to make lots of flashcards and look at the old spec past papers. They always want you to use very specific language in your answers so keep an eye on that when you're doing past papers 😉

Good luck!!

Having done some asking around about this, less than 3% of people studying for 3 A Levels actually achieve 3 A*s, so don't be too hard on yourselves!

Hey mate I'm year 13 as well. Can I ask what degree of course are you going to apply this year? I am thinking between MEng or BEng but still cannot make a decision yet.
