    Ok so I have just started studying Biology in my first year of A-Levels, my course is a 2 year linear the problem is that in my first Biology little mock I got a U, close to a E but a U. Im scared I will fail it and not be able to go to University and sometimes I don't understand the stuff in class. How do I revise?, How do I get at least a C? Thank you for any help.

    PS: I got a B at GCSE but only just. Im also stressing out about it and stress when I have to go to class.

    Hey 😀

    Talk to your teachers and they will really want to help you with this, I'm sure they will have lots of suggestions. I got a U on a chem mock as late as April this year (I'm in my second year of a levels but sat AS exams last summer) and managed to pass with some help from my teachers - they gave me help with different revision techniques and then just threw loads of exam questions at me until I grasped the exam technique!

    Good luck

    Don't worry too much about it. I got a D in my first AS Biology mock, then in real thing I got an A at AS and an A at A2.

    ^THIS.

    Don't stress about doing badly at the start - you're meant to progress as you go through the course. If you were A* to begin with, there wouldn't be much point in studying for two years!

    Just work hard, steadily, and seek help for things that you don't understand promptly, rather than leaving them till the end.

    Don't worry. The year is supposed to show progress! In chem, for example, I got D's and C's in my assessments but came out with an A at AS and so far in my A2, have been getting A*s in my recent topic tests.
