    what subjects do you need help in. in case you think "all of them" what are they?
    I like maths, BUT the course has changed and there's some stuff i won't give good explanations on (e.g. expanding 3 brackets i do in this fancy A level way)

    oh yeh, also the best method of revision differs from subject to subject. For example in maths it's just do as many past papers as possible while some/all written focused subjects like R.E. require just learning the facts from a revision guide or youtube videos.

    Get used to revising though m8, A levels require a LOT of revision

    For one of many tips, I'd say it's VITAL, in order to get top grades, to print off the specifications for all your subjects and just follow them, use them as a reference guide and tick them off, especially since the GCSE specs can be detailed enough for you to make notes from! Also, it's nice knowing when you've covered the entire spec from top to bottom since they can't ask you anything that isn't on the spec

    This is the hard truth my man. You gotta put those hours in if you want good grades, i say about two hours reviewing everything you know/learnt after school and on say long holidays 1-6 weeks put at least 5 hours in a day. On weekends 1 hour is enough. Practice works. With anything
