    Last year my AS grades were not really great, D in biology E in chemistry and U in maths! I know they are rubbish, i feel really annoyed with myself because i didn't put the effort i was suppose to and neglected my studies. This year I'm currently studying my A-levels at the same time I have done my AS level resits in January. I did AS bio,chem and math(C1,2 and M1) and i honestly thought i did well i put a lot of work from september to december. So its February and my A level exams are 3 and a half months away. I feel really pressured and i keep thinking that the time i have left isn't enough. i do Edexcel btw. Do you guys think ill be able to finish my Alvls to get the best possible grades in the time that i have left and if you were in my position how would you tackle it, what i mean is how would you study. Would i do my unit 4s first then unit 5s or would i do both simultaneously(for bio and chem). I do maths everyday so I'm comfortable with what I'm doing but my main problems are biology and chemistry. Would love to get your guys input it would mean a lot. Thank you

    Aww :console:

    So you have a lot on your plate here. If I were you, I'd look to create a workable revision timetable and adhere to that. Yes, focus more on the things you find difficult, but be careful not to neglect your strengths (maths for instance).

    The mental side is also important. It is often the case that people with a large workloads finds themselves 'buried' under the weight of it all. It is therefore important to take enough time away from your work. In other words, besides eating and sleeping well, be sure to do a lot of what you enjoy to escape the monotony from time to time.

    Finally, have some self-belief. You CAN do it and you WILL.

    All the best! :hugs:
