    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.
    That's very impressive! Which subjects did you self teach?
    And what college if you don't mind me asking?

    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.
    I find vectors hard in c4 can't even imagine what you're going through with further maths but good luck!

    Yeah you're jealous af
    When did you start revising for AS and A - level exams and how many hours were you doing a night, when you started?

    Also dont mean to be greedy w/ the questions but which subject did you find hardest besides further maths.
    PS. Ignore all the haters, IK you were genuinely just trying to give great advice besides why would you care about "showing off" to a bunch of strangers on the internet

    Thanks

    I dont have a proper revision schedule and I havent really kept track of when I started revising; Ive always been doing some kind of work. I dont do work excessively, I just make sure Im not wasting my time with eg gaming or social media. Because exams are coming up soon I have stepped up my revision, so I work maybe a couple of hours a day. In terms of understanding content for subjects, I find biology quite straightforward but I find the exams very difficult because of the ridiculous mark schemes. Chemistry requires you to know most of your course simultaneously in order to understand what's going on, so that can sometimes be a bit of work.
    And thank you!

    True! I've also got a friend with an offer from Pembroke for Engineering; his name is Abhishek Shenoy and I'm sure you'll about him in some way. (His nickname is God).

    Thank you! I'd recommend first using the textbook to understand the content, and then do loads of past papers. You're not likely to run out of past papers. I'd recommend doing them regularly, eg doing one per day for a few weeks will be amazingly helpful.

    Im on a new spec, will that change anything, also exam boards are irrelevant right? Just literally overdose on past papers?
    Thanks for the advice : )

    I don't know what's exactly on the new spec so speaking to your teachers might be your safest option. I haven't looked at other exam boards because I have never run out of Edexcel papers, though I did do Solomon papers as well occasionally.
    I think that if you're not understanding the questions in past papers, it might be a good idea to try to understand them using eg a textbook as opposed to repeating the questions until you understand.
