Hello. So in my year 1 i got CDD in Maths, biology and chemistry respectively. However this year i have been getting A/A stars in topic tests in chemistry, Cs and Bs and A's in topic tests in biology, and C's in Math topic tests. I'd say my year 1 knowledge is OKAY for all my subjects as i sometimes go over them. Is it too late to be aiming for A's for the exams next june, and if not how could i spend my time most efficiently from now until my exams, such as how long should i spend revising last years topics assuming it was weak compared to this years? I am really dedicated to getting A's in my exams but im worried it is a bit too late as there are roughly 6 months left. Any advice would be really appreciated, thank you.

Sorry, I am literally no help, but I'm in the same boat as you :/
I'm sure you can do it because nothing is impossible! Just keep at the exam questions, looking over exactly what the mark scheme asks for. I'll be watching this thread for any advice from someone with experience
Keep working hard, it is possible!
Good luck!

Thank you for the kind words. I'm really hoping its possible but i am doubtful because i've heard of people working hard since the start of A levels and still not manage to get an A so it is hard to be optimistic.

It's honestly about working smart, not hard. I worked very hard last year and it amounted to nothing at all. This year, my revision tactics are MUCH more focused around first memorising content (I like spaced repetition the most) and then doing exam question after exam question. It seems so be going pretty well so far so I think it's definitely worth giving a shot. In this situation, there is literally nothing to lose! Don't lost faith in yourself, you must be doing these really hard A-Levels because you are capable of getting the grade! Best of luck!

Lets make that 3 innit. Im also in a similar position as u. I got BCD predictions in year 1. And we had exams in september and I got really good grades in them so now its changed to BBC. Honestly its not the end of the world if u messed up first year. Im doing Maths, chem, physics btw so in terms on content in year 2 physics and chem is similar. I'd say if u really want those As and A* u have to be ahead of ur class in everything like ive finished all of pure maths at home and ive just started applied maths A2. Also a lot of work needs to be done like u need to do work in the half terms as that is ur chance to catch up and when ur mostly free. But good luck bro hopefully u do it.
