A level revision help

I’m genuinely so panicked. My a levels start in just over a month and I don’t think I’m in that much of a good place w the content. In maths I literally don’t know any of the year 2 mechanics content and I have like 2 topics left to do in chem and 1 left in bio. I’ve been trying to cover these topics on my own, as well as doing revision at the same time but it’s just taking so long. I really don’t want to just waste time covering content I’d rather just do pure revision. When should I aim to finish this content by and how much time should I dedicate to just past papers ??????

Hi, have you not learnt some of the content at all yet? I did those 3 A levels last year and I think we finished around this time? Biology took longer than the others. I think you should do a mixture of stuff right now. Start doing past papers as early as possible, you can do questions by topic on physics and maths tutor. That’s how I started with past papers since I wasn’t confident enough to do a full paper right away. Exam technique is important so it’s good to start working on that a little in advance.
Honestly don’t panic, I was still going over biology content literally the day before one of the papers. It was the most stressful thing ever, but I got my predicted grades and all was fine.

I don’t know if your school has access to integralmaths? But they have videos on there you could use to learn some of the mechanics stuff if you can access them. (I did Edexcel maths, not sure about other exam boards)

You’ll be okay!

Hi, you can learn mechanics using TL Maths YouTube, chemistry using Allery Chemistry
