I'm doing CS,Bio,Chem, AQA for bio and chem, OCR for CS, I'm only following the advanced information for revision and I'm paranoid that other subjects will come up, any advice? It's a little worrying since I need to get AAB and there's that slight thought that it was me misinterpreting the advanced info, anyway i need advice

The advanced information is designed to help students specialise their time on topics they should be revising . In simple terms, they will ask you questions on the topics that are on the advanced information. Although I cannot speak for the subjects your doing, from my experience for a subject like Economics I will have to revise topics that are not included in the advanced information because it might still be relevant to include in the questions. On front of the AQA Advanced Information sheet for Economics, it indicates "students will be credited for using any relevant knowledge from any non-listed topic areas when answering questions.

So in theory, if topic A and B is listed on the advanced information but topic C isn't, however, you know that C is related to the topics then it is best to go over that topic - at least thoroughly and grasp the basic understanding.

All the best for the exam

There seems to be a general misunderstanding about advance information. If you only revision the topics listed in the advance information, you are not going to do well - and certainly if you're aiming for AAB. The topics in the advance information give the focus of the exam paper, but they are not exclusive: the other topics will appear in lower-tariff questions. If you're aiming for a high mark, then it is absolutely essential that you prepare for the examination as you would any normal examination, and not attempt to 'question-spot' or junk large parts of the specification.
