    I'm in my second year of sixth form at the moment, currently applying for university and sorting out my UCAS forms and personal statement.
    However, I failed my media A2 exam last year and I'm going to re-sit it in May of 2018 with the rest of my exams.

    How can I make time to study for everything including my re-sit (alongside current coursework and re-sit coursework)

    - Start early
    - Be very organised i.e. make a revision timetable or to-do lists every day/week
    - Reflect on the mistakes you made last year and work harder this year to rectify them
    - Look at the topics you struggled on and focus on them
    - Do practise questions, mark it, see where you lost marks, study those topics again and go back to answer similar questions
    - Get feedback from your teacher on how to improve your work

    Hope that helps!
