So, with 4 months left to go, I am starting to gather resources for my revision my aim is to start revising by February 24th. I wish to study medicine after A-levels. At A-levels I want to take: Biology, Chemistry and Maths.

My Target grades are as follows:
English Literature: 6 (AQA)
English Language: 6 (AQA)
Maths: 8 (AQA)
Further Maths: N/A (AQA Level 2 certificate)
Physics: 7 (Edexcel)
Biology: 8 (Edexcel)
Chemistry: 9 (Edexcel)
PE: 8 (AQA)
Music: 8 (AQA)
Business: A* (Edexcel- Old specification)

Now my questions:
Am I starting too late to revise?
Are notes better than flashcards in this moment of time?
What should I do after finishing past papers and got them marked?
How do I get out of procrastinating?
How can I boost my grades in English?
How can I write effective notes?

It's better late than never, you can find a lot of online notes/resources then add to them and do lots of practise questions. Set timers/alarms and make a list of everything that needs doing/revising to help you stop procrastinating.

Start now, make up cheat sheets,flash cards, and do something on your priority subjects every day. Gradually build up the time you spend on it, so you reach your optimum peak at the exam period.
