it’s nuts but I’ve got the same issue with economics:sadnod: my teacher also always uses food to explain things (e.g: Cadbury’s and galaxy to explain substitutes and eating loads of mars bars to explain marginal utility:lol:) as much as it helps me understand it makes me so hungry:facepalm:
:woo: well done for getting shortlisted
Have a lovely week:hugs:

Quick Update - 16/10/18

I had my first maths test yesterday and it was absolutely HORRIBLE! I was actually contemplating why I even took it (and trust me, it was my absolute favourite subject during GCSEs). The only thing giving me hope right now is the fact that everyone else found it equally as difficult. I guess I'm just disappointed as I didn't even have time to answer quite a few of the questions. I'm already dreading getting the results back

Anyone else finding anything difficult right now?

A-Levels are a lot harder than GCSEs, so almost everyone struggles at the start as they need to change up their study technique and exam technique to A-Level standard, which is why most students don't do well at the start. But this isn't a bad thing as everyone learns from this experience and improves afterwards.

I got a D in my first biology exam in Y12, and improved throughout the year to get a strong A at AS, which was the only exam which mattered that year So don't worry about your most recent exam, just take it as a learning experience for the future. Anything above a C this early on at AS is amazing!

Since we both take Maths and Chemistry, i'll share the tips for those subjects:

Maths
I try to finish the content and be thorough with it as fast as I could by reading the textbook examples and watching youtube videos from Jack Brown if i'm still unsure about the topic. I also have a school 'Integral Maths' login which is for the MEI exam board but I love practising from it because the questions are typically more difficult than the AQA ones.

After being thorough with the content, I try to do as many different types of questions for each topic but focus mainly on doing hard questions to prepare myself for worst case scenarios in the real exam. I also write down questions that I struggled with or made silly mistakes on, and I revise that topic again a few days using just the questions sheet. I also skim over this on the exam day, so I can familiarize myself with the hard questions and remember where I make silly mistakes so that I won't mess up and do this in the real exam.

Where I get my Maths practice questions (LINKS ATTACHED):

Chemistry
This subject is actually the easiest and most straight-forward one to revise for. LITERALLY, the only studying I do is memorising the Chemrevise revision notes and then doing past paper questions. The AQA Chemistry questions are soo repetitive so memorising mark schemes helps a lot! I also note down the questions I got wrong and learn the mark schemes to them.
