I got a D in summer but that was due to not enough revision and not knowing the exam techniques (essay writing) properly. Ive upped my game this year and have started my revision for jan retakes already. Please share exam tips and revision techniques. Thank you

I've started already too.. ask your teacher for some extra work and help. I've got mine to mark question papers for me so I get an idea of what I'm doing and how I'm working. 

I've already done 2 of them and I've asked her to be very critical in the way she marks them just so if I do get a really horrible examiner like I did with a few other exams this year then I can be prepared.. 

I am also preparing some revision notes and trying to work them all out. I've also bought a book by collins for revision notes, its called support materials but I've found the book very helpful and the layout is brilliant. This is all I could really offer you for help. If you do need anything else though, drop me a message :) we can always help each other out

Pracitce as many past papers as you can and hand them into your teacher to mark, so you learn from your mistakes. Also, if there's anyone else who's done better then you at school, as them if you can borrow any questions that they have practiced :) :)

I took my AS exams last year and I got an 'A' in both units. I think the biggest thing for me was the amount of key words and names of researchers that I was supposes to remember. I found using flashcards really really useful for this. Aside from that, reading over your notes and creating mindmaps after each topic really helped me. 

Some people also practice answering the essay questions (which are obviously a large part of the exam) and giving them to the teacher to mark.

Good luck with your resits. :)
