    So we’re halfway through March and I’ve jsut started revising for my AS exams. I’ve got my external exams for maths in may and my internal ones for biology, chemistry and Philosophy at the start of June. I’m just a bit confused when people usually start with ‘intense’ revision for A levels? As obviously they’re a lot more challenging and content heavy compared to GCSE. I’ve been doing light revision here and there and making flashcards etc but I’m just scared that I left it too late and should’ve started proper revision ages ago if I want A’s.

    You should do as much revision as you need to. Some people need more, others need less. Only you can tell if you actually understand the content that's being taught. Maybe go and do a past paper and see how well you do. That'll tell you how much revision you need.
