    Trust me when I say this:

    . Get snaprevise (do not have to but it works)
    .Print of specification
    .Bullet point revision guide (do not learn in chunks)
    .PAST EXAM QUESTIONS

    Do a topic a week with exam questions but dont overuse all the exam questions because you need some just before exam

    Year 12, but I have been getting A's and B's during my mocks and class and that is what I am doing. I have also received advice from students who attend KCL, QMUL and LSE. It is really helping. I struggled with Bio at first, but its just practice and revision. If you start now you are going to make it.

    Personally, 3-4 hours, but that just depends on you and where you are in terms of grades. Do not be disappointed if you are getting E'S or D's or even C's; two months should definitely be enough. Do not try learning everything at once. Take small stepping stones. I wake up around 5:30 am to revise...but not the past two days

    That doesn't sound too bad to me, as I am currently doing 2-3 hours of revision a day. On a scale of 1 to 10, how much would you rate snaprevise?

    Do as many past papers as you can and then repeat them. There are some past papers based on specific topics, so you study and revise a topic then try to do as many past papers as you can. I've included the website.

    snaprevise not physics and maths tutor. Physics and maths tutor is more past papers, snaprevise is where a person actually goes through every topic with you with exam questions and tips!!!!!!! Its worth it, i was skeptical in the beginning but do not regret!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!
