what are subject specific top tips and advice for year 12/sixth form
(coming from a year 11 student)
I have picked biology, pyschology and physical education
-Stay up to date with your work(daily)
-Make a timetable and make sure you go accordingly.
-Start slowly and then progress as time goes on. What I mean is don't from 0 to 100 immediately when it comes to studying.
- It's good to test yourself, even during term time, that way you get around the topic or subject more easily.
thanks very much, im aiming for high grades (i.e A/A*) is there any advice for studying, memorizing the mark schemes becase i heard especially sciences a level s the mark schemes are very specific and ppl can know all the content but get low grades because they didnt write a specifc key term or word.

For science, For long answer questions go through diagrams and when exam season is near memorise the scientific terms. I'm sure you'll get A-A* as long as you're up to date with your work. The biggest factor that plays a role in science is memorizing, but that should be done when your exams are around the corner. Lastly keep practicing questions

make sure you use your frees properly if u have any, try and do questions/work throughout the year instead of cramming everything in your end of year exams, make notes/revision resources as you go along instead of doing it all last minute, have a good relationship with your teachers
