    Hi all,

    I will be applying for an access course next year and I was told we will be studying A-level chemistry, Biology and physics, my question is how early should I start revising for it to get full marks? Along with what books or internet web pages should I be looking at?

    Thanks all in advance.

    You really think I will need to revise this early? I won't be starting until next September. I need to get my GCSE at grade C in Maths and English before I can apply.

    I have started revising maths and physics as I'm also doing the same as you, but I'll be taking access to engineering (more maths, less biology).

    The physics book I'm using is Cambridge International AS and A level physics 2nd ed. Check this website: www.gceguide.xyz and you can download it for free (legally). They have more free books available and most of them are well rated by teachers and students. don't worry too much about the book itself. it's really not important. start studying and good luck if you'll need help in physics feel free to PM me anytime.

    Hi elecEng. I'm debating whether to do access to science or access to engineering. If you dont mind can you tell me which college offers your engineering course?
