    In my AS levels I got AABB, and this year am looking to get A* A* A. I take Psychology (Edexcel), Business Studies (OCR) and Physical Education (OCR).
    I have already began to make resources and continually go back and go over them, however when I did this last year (and then upped it massively toward march time) I still didn't manage to get a 'top' grade. I was wondering if anybody has any tips to help me achieve my goal? One huge problem I face is putting huge pressure on myself and stressing myself out, and I don't want all the hard work I do to impact me negatively when exams come around and cause me to get a lower grade than what I deserve/want.

    First of all don't panick. Have a day to relax. I revise from Sunday to Friday and I relax on Saturdays. Secondly I would highly recommend to talk to your teacher. Tell them what you're aiming for and ask them what you can do to achieve that. My teachers helped me A LOT. I hope that helps I'm also doing psychology!!!!!
