So I’m going into yr12 next week and wanted some advice for this year. I’ve heard the general advice of keeping on top of work, working in my frees, ask for help straight away and complete homework as soon as possible.
But I’d really appreciate advice for my specific subjects: maths, geography and rs (all with Edexcel). So if anyone has done those subjects (especially geography and rs) I’d really appreciate any words of wisdom.
Thank you

hi there, im 1 yr above and i did re and maths too
For maths, I'd suggest you to make all your notes and examples really neat and to practice. Not like every day but like once a week, covering certain topics. Make sure you revisit any old topics so u eventually master it all. Practice is the key for a level maths. Use the maths spec wisely to ur advantage and before ur ucas exams start doing past papers for AS and yr1 maths papers.
For RS, you can chill. Learn the theory and be able to apply it easily into different situations. Learn your terminology and keep ur philosophy, ethics and christian deontology sections seperated into dif folders so its easier to use when revising. Learn bible quotes every two weeks for the dif subjects in christian deontology and make sure u plan out all the stuff covered in philosophy and ethics and learn to critique certain theories.

For maths edexcel, when you finish a chapter make sure you do every question you feel you need to do in the mixed exercise. I found this really useful and ended up with a 92% average in pure and 88% in stats and mechanics in AS topic tests.

Got my maths A level this year, did Edexcel as well. Best thing is to make regular practice a habit from the start, the difficulty ramps up quite quickly and falling behind will only make it more difficult. When practising, do a spread of new and old topics, don't fall into the trap of just focusing on one area.
