How to get an A*?

  • 1 vote

Hi, I'm currently studying Maths, Biology and Chemistry and I've been predicted to get an A* for my subjects. However, I need your advice, such as revision tips and techniques etc, that would help me to accomplish this. Please help me, because I'm finding A2 considerably difficult in comparison to AS.

I thought AS was so difficult and A2 would would be a breeze. Boy, was I wrong!

Thank you :)

Past papers. Do lots of them and revise the questions in your book over and over again. Perhaps study at least 2 hours a day each. Try to follow a schedule. Every 45 mins take a 15 min. break. Most important thing is the past paper. In every exam there has got to be some questions similar to the past papers.

Study in groups. Sometimes studying in groups help but if you're a chatty type or your classmates are, perhaps it won't be such a good idea. Tutor other students. They learn something, you remember something, it's a win win situation.

True, memorizing would be a good idea, if you've got excellent memory. Some ppl just aren't able to memorize that easily. Instead, understanding about the subjects and being able to explain them to other people may help them remember. :D Here's a good site for any of you guys who need study tips. http://calnewport.com/blog/
