    It is obvious that the Sciences need more work due to content, but maths needs lots of practice too.. its hard...

    Start doing past papers early. For Biology, whenever you're doing revision just do past paper questions by topic. The exam questions are really repetitive and if you start early, then you'll get an A quite easily (I managed to get 90% in my AS Biology 2yrs ago by following this method). You can apply the same method to Maths (the only way to get an A is by practice).

    To balance all of this you should make a revision timetable, and ensure you're spending more time doing questions rather than constantly making notes.
