Hello, is this A level? It is a great idea to do past papers as you have nearly finished the course.

Active revision means that you test yourself or write your own notes from memory rather than just reading though the textbook.

Good luck!

Check out a YouTuber called Ali Abdaal. He studied Medicine at Cambridge. He’s made a few YouTube videos about how he revised to get where he is. His strategies improved my grades drastically.

First of all, don't panic. Secondly, stay positive and make a plan. Your emotional and psychological skills will get you through this difficult 3 and a half months.

Thirdly, it is not too late, remember your study skills will be useful for the rest of your life, not just these next few months, and the process of studying and following your plan (and modifying your plan as appropriate) is important to get used to as a life skill. In other words, concentrate on the process of studying which is the important bit and not just your eventual grades of AAB.

Don’t sweat it, just revise, have a few days off here and there, and chill.
People tend to cluster this time of year and go into panic mode, don’t, do the work that’s required and ensure you include rest days and whatnot.
I’m in the same position, currently at A*AA in chemistry biology and history. Don’t panic, do your thing, in your time.

Make a plan and try and stick to it as much as possible. Make your own notes and understand what you have learned. Relax and have some down time away from your revision. Good luck.
