    I am interested in science, and especially biology. Natural sciences seemed like the most suitable course at Cambridge. I applied biology at other unis.
    We have a professor at uni whose a Cambridge grad of natural sciences and teaches dentistry (which I find really cool but random) and he just seems to know everything there is to know about literally anything.

    Are you interested in research or teaching at uni level at all?

    I think I'd like to do research in the future, I dont really want to do teaching (though I might do some tutoring to earn money).

    I'd recommend going through the textbook first and then doing questions. Chemguide is a good website for help. For calculations, I think it is important you understand what you are doing and then do questions to solidify your understanding.

    I'm not quite sure why you're arguing on a student based forum if you're of that age...

    I honestly do not have a proper routine. I'm revising the whole of chemistry A-level for the next week or two by revising about one chapter a day and then doing a few practice questions. My main method of revision is writing down what I remember (I type because it's faster and I don't care about spelling or grammar) and then read the relevant chapter of the textbook to correct myself/ add content.
    If I feel as if Im not focusing ill just stop working.
    I try to get enough sleep because otherwise I cant focus.
    The main reason I dont have time management problems is that I try to get rid of anything that is an unhealthy distraction (eg instagram or snapchat)

    Stay away from things like gaming and social media. Now that exam season is coming up I have deactivated all my social media accounts, though I usually only have Facebook. Make sure you sleep well and have a healthy lifestyle; being well rested and healthy is really important. Just be smart with your time and dont waste it. (Im not saying isolate yourself and dont have friends though).

    What topics do you find the hardest in your subjects?
    Personally I find the immune system in AS biology really hard because it's very complicated, but what we're taught is a massive simplification and therefore has lots of gaps. Fortunately the exams don't require much understanding for this topic.
    Further maths has some challenging topics: I find vectors quite hard, and matrices are a bit confusing too.
    Most other topics I find quite straightforward to understand, though they do require some work to remember.

    A-levels: Chemistry, Biology, Maths (y12, A*), Further Maths, Dutch (y12, A* because I speak Dutch at home).
    Natural Sciences offer from Cambridge.
    I got 5A*s in Triple maths, accounting and EPQ in Year 12, predicted another 3A*s in Physics, Economics and Chinese, also aiming for S,S in STEP
    Got a Maths Offer.

    Congrats anyway. You’ll be working with some top people in the world. When you get there, you’ll probably realize how brilliant some people are. Be humble all the time.
