    Sesh out past papers

    Posted from TSR Mobile

    I think the best way to make gradual progress is to make sure that your revision is consistent. I'm also in my AS year and from September, I've been aiming to complete 2-3 hours of study per night - including homework, and whilst also making the most of free periods - in addition to some work at weekends also. Of course, sometimes alternative arrangements crop up - such as extra curricular activities - but the general guide is around 16-18 hours of extra study per week.

    I followed this, and did relatively okay in my mock exams (AAAB).

    Indeed, past papers are your best friend - especially for fact based subjects, like maths. Core textbooks, approved by your exam board, are generally written according to the specification, and so are what I consider to be the best source of course content outside of lessons.
