    I sometimes get really overwhelmed by the amount of work there is at AS. How do other students manage their time and studying in order to get the best grades?

    I managed to mess up my AS grades, got an E, D and C and a U in Critical Thinking but i don't class that a subject anyway

    Only advice I have is go through all the class notes you made each week for each subject and maybe just re-write them or test yourself to see what you know

    Another good way to revise is by doing past papers - I've found them most helpful

    But if you're AS grades aren;t what you're expecting then don;t worry about it you have a whole year to improve and if they were to be lower than expected then use that as motivation to do better and not something to put yourself down with. Also don't overwork yourself!

    Good luck with your exams!
