    I was wondering if anyone on this website can help me with trying to improve my grades. I want to do biomedical science at university and I can get on to the course with a foundation year in the uni I really want to go to but it’ll be amazing if I can get in without the foundation year.
    Currently I’m predicted a D in biology, C in psychology and E in physics which is 72 UCAS points and I want to get that up to the 112 UCAS points needed to get on to the course.
    If anyone has any revision resources (I’m on AQA for all subjects) or any tips on revision please link it below, I’m so determined to succeed this year and I’ll do anything I can to succeed

    For Biology, I find flash cards really helpful, as well as reading through the textbook after lessons to consolidate learning, and then going to the teacher ASAP if I don't understand something. Sadly, I have found limited revision resources online for Biology, aside from those on GetRevising. I find making condensed notes from the textbook helpful for revision. If you have any questions I would be happy to help

    Sorry I only do biology and not the other two subjects, but this is my recommendation for biology!

    Happy to help anytime!! The synoptic links can get confusing, especially with essay. Good luck with biology!!

    EDIT: I do AQA so I don't know if you will have an essay....

    I'm aiming for Biomed too and I find that condensing notes for biology is really useful.
    Also, I make comprehension questions (about 1 1/2 pages) from my notes, the textbook and my revision guide.
    I do Chemistry (not physics) but I think the same advice applies - Past Papers and Questions. I went from a D to an A by doing at least 5 questions after every lesson.
    After Year 12 it gets a lot easier to link things together - just keep at it! 🙂🙂🙂
