I'm surprised that you are doing a AS and a full A2 as some colleges are cutting that down giving AS exams to only those doing a 1 year course and A2 for 2 years unless the teacher really think you can do it. You wouldn't also do a AS and a A2 in the same year...

Revision tips-
For me I just finished my AS exam and I would full on recommend that you have a full list of units with you. I didn't get to know what my Final course unit until 2 months prior which meant I had to learn a few crital Info pieces without the help of teachers but solely on books. With this, confront your teacher and ask them to give you a list of what you will be learning for the year and future lessons topic so you can prep ahead of time and make sure you aren't missing anything. Ask them for their book recommendations as the ones used by school didn't make as much sense compared to the ones that was recommended by my teacher (the book published by Pearson (revision guide and workbook) is by far the best)

Revision techniques I used was to always sit and be friends with the smartest kid/group In the class as you will be partnered up with them and they can help you in and out of lessons. Always write your notes in school and type it up later so you can double check your written information and make clean notes for revision. For me and my friends we did a system where each was assign to a teacher or unit and in that lesson one of us would do the notes and share them on a Dropbox/Google file and another would do the same for their assigned teacher.

If you can get a photocopies of your book, separate them by units and highlight them as you go through. It helped me a lot as reading from books was too difficult for me. Print out different sources online on certain topics you may think u could be struggling on. For a relaxed study sesh search up YouTubers such as IbzMo and see their revision tips also
