    I got an A in the AS in summer but the exam has changed from being out of 30 to 40 and my teacher is shocking and has no idea what she is talking about, if anyone studying it right now and has had decent teaching any tips would be appreciated

    Hi! I'd say I've been quite lucky in terms of teachers, they have been great so far given the lack of resources. Recently we had a day with Gregory Barker who wrote the Christianity textbook. One of his main revision tips that he used himself was to make your initial notes and then from there start to shorten them until you're left with key words which should trigger memories of the rest of the topic. He believes that was the best way to deal with the high content levels in this course. From experience I've found this does tend to work quite well so I'd give it a try. Hope this helps, best of luck in the coming exams!

    I like to make flashcards, that's always helped for me! Also develop an essay structure and learn it. Sometimes I like to go full 'beautiful mind' and cover my walls in post in notes.
