In my opinion whenever you sit an exam you should give it your best
shot because its once in a lifetime chance. Okay there may be resits but
lets say when your 30 years old you will not be sitting you A levels will
Below are some revision techniques which I find helpful and that you
may also find helpful. Feel free to post me back if something does not
make sense or to give feedback.
Firstly the best thing is start revising and making notes early on in the
year, for example before Christmas and then when you come to revise it
for the exam in May/July, it will just come to you or you may only need
to do little revision.
Secondly make sure you have a clutter free work space. This is because

Customise work with colours and shapes. You may remember this is in
the exam!
Lastly if there is something you don't understand ask your teachers,
