I have both the AS and A-level Biology course and it's totally worth it. Just knowing that you have the means to go over a topic, or even read ahead, really helped in year 12 and now in year 13. As well as the videos, you're also provided with summary sheets on each topic as well as full written notes.

Currently I am struggling to an extent with chemistry. Time to time I do use e rintoul's videos but I think I will also get the snap revise as well to ensure I make more/better progress seen as though you strongly recommend it. Much thanks for the fast responses!!!

Seriously ? Can you please explain how it wasn't useful as I don't want to just waste £30.

It's not worth it at all; why would you pay for things you can find for free? There are literally hundreds of free websites with methods for how to revise more effectively. If you want to read ahead then read your textbook. Your teachers will be encouraging you to take proper notes in class and will provide you with revision materials and methods.

I suppose just seemed a good idea with videos and questions in one place instead of having to scour the internet . However £30 seems to be a bit too much

I found it totally worth it. I actually think it is the reason I was able to go from a C to an A in Biology and from a B to an A in Chemistry. Firstly, the videos cover everything you need for what is on the spec and the concepts are broken down in an easy way to follow way, much better then my teachers could explain. Secondly, they have hundreds of exam question videos which I found the best part as the presenters spend a lot of time breaking down questions and explaining how to get full marks – the part I struggled most with in Biology & Chemistry.

I just finished year 12, going into year 13 now. Should have made that clear, sorry! I think the year 13 content is a lot harder so I don't know if I can use the same methods as I did in year 12 but I'll see I guess

I used the same techniques that you listed above, just finished year 12 and was 4% off an A in Chem due to silly mistakes

They were internal mocks but half of the questions were from the actual AS papers. Our teachers replaced the easy questions on the real AS paper because they wanted us to be more prepared for the real exam.
