I got a C in my AS exam despite studying SO hard and finding the exam easy. They made the grade boundaries really high and now I'm worried because I need an A for the Uni I want to go to but don't know how to get there. Tips on how to study????

I was super lazy first year because i found maths and chemistry really straightforward so only did proper work for philosophy and bio. But in year 2 I definitely was more willing to spend that extra hour to fully consolidate topics etc. I used the be focused app to revise for 30 mins then have a 10 min break, and tbh you can get so much done in 30 mins when you really focus, i was astonished. For maths past papers are great, and for some of the questions where you have to apply techniques more creatively, read examiners reports for such questions as they may give and example of an individuals excellent answer. Good luck!

I made a spreadsheet of the past papers i did (and used conditional formatting so the cells turn red yellow or green depending on the ums percentage i attained). I started doing AS old spec past papers from january of year 13 to consolidate year 1 knowledge, then from end of march i started A2 papers . After every paper i marked it quickly and noted questions i got wrong, then looked at all the marking points for those questions and then read the examiners report. If i still didnt understand id look at my revision guide or book, if not still id consult a teacher but that didnt happen. Revision is different for each subject, for maths and chem i got away with just past papers, but for bio i just read the revision guide, and read around the subject, i feel understanding something means i wont forget it easily

Past papers really for me. But before i started to sit the exams i fully went through each point on the spec for bio and checked if i understood it, if not fully then id refresh my mind by lookingg at the topic in my revision guide

A lot of people say memorising mark schemes for bio would you recommend this or is it better to understand what the questions is asking?

Could you please give me some advice for getting an A in Biology? I'm struggling with subject so much... it's mainly applying my knowledge to exam questions. Does this skill just come with practice?
