    What A levels are you doing?

    In general it just means going over more information on the same topics to make sure you fully understand them. Doing practice questions etc.

    If you Google revision books or resources for the A levels you do, you'll find plenty of things to use.

      Basically teachers can only teach to a certain level. Teach you to get a maximum of an A. But to get an A*/ that top grade must come from you. Besides hard revision, past papers and knowing virtually everything and how to answer the questions, on the specification.

      Depending on the subjects. It could be as simple as reading a book relating to it. For example, I do Classical Civilisation and I had to known four Greek tragedies. I read before the exam in own time due to interst just one more different play, hence I got 98% on it. I thought it was a coincidence as it was the only subject I did extra work for. But it worked and I know to do that this year.

      What subjects do you take?
