I've just finished as and am awaiting my one AS result in maths. I study Maths (edexcel), Biology (OCR) and Business studies (AQA). Has anyone got any tips for going into A2 and what I can do to prepare for it, I am aspiring to get 3 A's at A-level so I would also like some tips on that as well!!

For maths, keep on doing past papers and practice papers.

Past Papers w/ Worked Solutions by ExamSolutions
Physics & Maths Tutor for IYGB Papers/Solomon Papers/Gold/Silver/Bronze Papers

ExamSolutions for videos on every topic

I took AQA Biology so can't advise on any specific resources other than

McGraw Hill for animated biological processes. Aimed at students taking AP/SAT Biology but the science is still correct

and also tell you that the best way is to do past papers, make sure you use the mark schemes carefully and read the examiner's reports for common mistakes that students make.

I didn't take Business Studies so I can't advise on that - sorry.

Good luck with A2! Make sure you keep on top of your assignments/notes. It'll fly by!

Thankyou very much for the reply, but how do would you complete lots of past papers for biology since its a new spec so the past papers are very limited?

The specification didn't change much for AQA so I'd imagine it'll be the same for OCR.

You should still be able to use the old spec papers. The papers will just be named differently and the topics might be in an order different to the old spec.
