    I need to do really well in both of these subjects (7-9 on the new grading system) to study them at A Level, but I struggle to retain the information. Any advice?

    I got through GCSEs by doing loads of past papers and the CGP workbooks. After a while, the question all become really similar, so answering them becomes easier.

    A ‘little and often’ approach is important for revision at GCSEs.

    But, with all due respect, don’t study a subject at A Level unless you’re really comfortable with it.

    I really appreciate the advice. Thank you. May I ask: how do you know when you are comfortable with a subject?

    Haha! You know when you’re comfortable with a subject when you understand what’s being taught and you enjoy the subject. I thought I’d enjoy A level Maths, but I found it too difficult and it didn’t interest me so I swapped it for Politics.

    Just don’t do something because you're ‘good’ at it - make sure you enjoy it too! It’s a lot easier to do something when you’re INTERESTED in it!
