Hi OP,

I would say the most important thing in looking for revision guides is finding ones that are for the exam board you are with, e.g AQA, Edexcel, OCR, etc. This way you know for sure that you will be revising relevant content only.

Of the subjects you are studying I only studied geography personally, but for that I would recommend this website - https://geography-revision.co.uk/a-level/ - as a good basic resource for most modules at A level.

Hope this helps

Hi there,

I studied Business, Geography and Law and I came out with A*A*A*.

May be worth noting I was part of the first year to have their exams cancelled due to the pandemic so was examined in different ways than normal.

Size:  37.5 KB This is for AQA though, I’m not sure what exam board you’re doing (and your school will probably give you a textbook to use) I got an A* in maths, found the jump from gcse to Y1 less than Y1 to Y2 as the content starts as an extension to the gcse and builds up!
