    Hey,
    So I messed up in Module 1 but will be retaking in January - doing Module 2 and 3 in June.
    How do you think I should do past papers, do questions on the topics when I finish revising them one by one? Or finish the syllabus and then do past papers?

    Hi!

    The problem I always found at A Level was that there wasn't enough past papers to keep doing one say one a week until the exams ... I used to make mind maps (spider diagrams) and notes on the key topics, and in the last few weeks before the exams keep going over these and then do the past papers ... Don't let the past papers trick you into a false sense of achievment absolutely anything can come up! Also, the sooner you start the better as I presume you will have at least 5 exams (3 bio plus 1 in the other 2 subjects)

    Good Luck

    the OP's question: a mixture of both really, i find helps...
    do exam q's as u go along...
    do one topic, do an exam q after you've studied it
    it reinforces what you've just learnt...
    keep a few papers aside though, to do in exam conditions at the end
