Although GCSEs may be difficult, the jump to A level is much harder, and possibly even worse than from A level to University. Despite this, you can still get through it and come out with outstanding grades, as long as you try your best.

In order to do this you just need to plan your time wisely. So, instead of saving all of your revision until the end of the year, and cramming in every single thing at once, all you have to do is plan ahead. Remember – never, ever skip homework! Even though it may seem like a complete waste of your time, teachers always set homework for a reason and it will undoubtedly help you. You will be able to get feedback on your work and make improvements, which will make you understand much more than you did before. Also, use your frees wisely. Obviously there will be times when you just want to lounge about in the common room with your friends, but if you have work or revision to do then don’t waste your time.

However, you also need to ensure that you find a great balance between your work and social life. There is no doubt that you will have a lot to do throughout the year, but you need a break too. So, get all of your work out of the way and then take some time out to go out with your friends and enjoy yourself.

Doing A levels is always going to be difficult, but make it easier on yourself by taking this advice! Good luck!
