I'm currently doing gcses and found myself very overwhelmed by the amount of work towards the end, mostly because I didn't put enough work in at the start. Obviously I don't want the same to happen when I start a levels next year so I was wondering if anyone had any advice, particularly for year 12. I'm going to do maths, English lit and psychology if that helps. Thanks

First of all, your username should not be GCSE failure as you can't be failing if you have aspirations for A-level.
Secondly, yes, your mentality has to be different when try to complete an A-level (Level 3) course. It requires constant study, a good deal of independence and a LOT of resilience. I guarantee you that there will be times which will make you question whether you can do it or second guess why you even took up the course but you must stick with it because it will pay off in the end.

Finally, you must be organised. Once you have confirmed you are doing the subjects, sort out your stationery (highlighters will be your friend). Buy individual binders for your subjects to put in your lesson notes. Buy flash cards for revision notes. The earlier you get prepared the better.

I've been through it (made the mistakes personally) and now I teach A-level so this advice is coming from both sides.

Hi guys, I'm thinking of selling my A-Level Notes but have a couple questions if that's ok! If you were going to buy notes, would you prefer them handwritten (then photocopied) or typed? Would you prefer to be sent a paper copy or to download a pdf? How much would you be willing to pay for extensive notes or bulk sets of flashcards? Just wondering! Thanks!
