Those are the exact A levels that I've just done!

For bio and chem, the best advice is to do practice questions as revision - some really good websites for these are physicsandmathstutor and mathsmadeeasy - I mostly used them for chem questions but I think they both do bio ones too. Also, don't be overwhelmed if things seem really hard at first - chem is hard but then pretty much stays at the same difficulty for the two years, and while there's a significant jump between year 12 and year 13 bio it's still smaller than the GCSE to A level jump (well it was for me anyway, but idk what the new GCSEs are like!).

For psych, I revised by just learning the outline and evaluation points for every mini topic. Practice essays are good to do (my teacher made us write one every week for homework). The way I learnt facts and eval was by looking at a double page spread of the textbook, then closing it and writing everything I could remember on a whiteboard before looking at the textbook again and adding things in in a different coloured pen. I then repeated that over and over again for all the topics.

That's just some general advice - please feel free to ask me any specific questions though, as I said I've literally just completed the exact same A levels so it's all still fresh in my mind!
