I got my AS results - CCC in Maths, Physics and Chemistry. I was 1 UMS mark off a B in Maths. With hard work and dedication, is it possible to go from CCC to AAA in A2?

Yes, of course it is. If you've done very badly in a specific exam, consider resitting it to boost up your grade significantly.

Thank you for your response. I can only resit Maths because it's the only modular exam I am doing

I went from ABDE at AS to AAA with A* in EPQ. Just work hard, as hard as you need to to get the grades. Grades are about work ethic not intelligence for the most part. Sure, some get it easy but those are in a very small minority, the reality is that the vast majority of the 'smart' kids you see are putting in hours after school into their studies.

Yup. It's going to take a lot of work and responsibility obviously, but it's definitely possible. My advice would be to make a detailed plan for how you would balance the work load and what study methods you would use.

Absolutely. For maths, don't attend the lessons, they are a waste of valuable time. Read the study books from cover to cover several times including all the examples.Practice the questions. Then practice harder questions as the standard is going up. The questions in the study book may not be hard enough.

On top of that, proper time management would be insanely beneficial, regardless of whether you have extra time or not.

SIDE NOTE: Try figure out what works best for you in terms of work ethic. Personally i found that having to go to classes was so incredibly detrimental to my study habits, i would always fall short in exams. It's most definitely a dangerous method to skip class, but if you find it helps you in any way try it out (even though you do pay for school lessons).

Cannot agree with this more. The majority of sixth formers with high grades aren't just 'naturally gifted', they graft hard for their grades. They put in major extra hours and try their hardest in what they do. If you have the right work ethic, then yes it is possible.

Yes, never doubt yourself, even if others do.

Source: ME
AS Mocks= CDEE Maths Physics Chemistry History
AS actual grades = AAAA

A2 Mocks = CDE Chemistry Maths Physics Respectively
A2 actual grades = A*AA


Time between mocks and real exams: 5-6 months

I just made sure I had everything that I needed to know. So in history this consisted of going through the entire AQA textbook, so all 48 chapters, 400+ pages..it took a long time but I ended up with a good grade and otherwise would have failed so it was worth it.

I just made notes on google drive from the textbook. I did this so it was easily accessible. I went through a chapter and annotated parts that I thought might be useful during the exam, so dates, details, potential arguments i could make etc. and then made notes.

Once I had finished the 24 chapters, I started on the next 24 chapters. However, I additionally started condensing the notes of the 24 completed chapters down to A4 sides. Then I hand wrote out as much of that as I could, which ended up as the first 8 chapters of each, and then wrote the details of those on flashcards.

I went through the flash cards the night before, and before the exam. This meant that I would try and recite the details. If I'd forget a detail, I'd write it down by hand, as physically writing helps you remember things better .
