What would be the most appropriate time to revise for AS (biology, chemistry
& psychology)?
And what are the most effective methods?

I think you should start now by looking the spec and practicing exam papers for each subject. Which exam boards do you follow for biology and chemistry because I could help you in them. Unfortunately I don't do psychology.

especially biology and chemistry the best methods are straight up doing past paper questions. you can never do enough. Do the old spec for them as it's very similar.

Ok. Well I can definitely help you with both. Ive made resources on all the topics in biology except investigating biodiversity. If you go on to the link I have sent and make an account which is free, send me a message. This is so you can click on my name in the sent messages and all my resources will come up in a list.

For chemistry I haven't made any resources as I just practise exam papers and also I do look at the spec

NOW.

I only revised a day or two, maybe three days before the exams and panicked so much I thought I failed. I got AAAB, but it was so risky no one had any hope I would pass. Do not do what I did, OP.

If you do WJEC Eduqas psychology, I can give you an idea of what to study.

Honestly what i did was quite bad ( reading the textbook, making tonnes of notes ) so instead i would recommend the following.

1) Make concise notes from the specification using a revision guide ( CGP is the best)
2) Do every past paper for your exam board, and if you finish use papers from other boards.
3) Identify any areas you are making mistakes on, and use a textbook/YouTube or other resource to gain a better understanding.

That's what i'm doing for this year anway

I've started now, I've been gradually doing revision throughout the year though. Doing completely different subjects but today was my first day of proper revision. I think doing a little bit each day is better than cramming maybe. Anyone doing Philosophy, Politics, History or English Lit and could share some revision tips?
