    I am currently doing Maths, Chemistry, Biology and History at A-level. I got 7A'S inclusive of the subjects I have taken for a level aside from 1 B and 2 C's. I need some advice as to how to improve I am up to hard work but anything else would be useful.

    AS or A2?

    I've been in a similar situation with chemistry and biology to be honest. I've just done my mocks, I am yet to get results but:

    I've found benefit in trying out new ways to revise such as using a whiteboard or something else to jot down diagrams such as the Krebs Cycle etc. in biology and just practical diagrams for Chemistry

    Tried abbreviating many things, e.g; Nitrogen Cycle in biology = NF -> AMF -> NTF -> DNTF and then learning each step and relating it to the abbreviation. I often try to come up with odd pictures that stick in my head.

    Brainstorming is a good idea and one thing that's helped me get motivation to work is just to write down what you need to do and then you can tick it off once you've done it, it's simple but it really helps!

    I'm actually doing AS at the moment but intend to go on to A2 for all 4. I am capable but I just need to know the details on how. I'll take your ideas into consideration thanks
