Tips for A-Levels make-up exams

1.- Understands the specifications of the examination.

This system is about becoming a true specialist in a field, so you will need to familiarise yourself in detail with the specifics of each subject. Understanding which subjects will be assessed and in what depth will allow you to focus your efforts precisely.

2.- Plan with precision.

Create a detailed study schedule that covers those three or four subjects that make up your study plan. Allocate time to each of them to ensure that you cover all the material adequately.

3.- Identify your strengths and weaknesses.

You have to do some self-criticism if you want to be a specialist in any subject. Therefore, make an honest assessment of your abilities in each subject. Identify the areas in which you are strong and those you need to strengthen. Spend more time on the complex ones, but don’t neglect your strengths, as they will also contribute to your overall score.

4.- Adopt an enthusiastic attitude.

If you have chosen the British system, it is because you are very clear about your goals. In this case, if you are convinced of what you want to do in the future and you have a very concrete idea, it is worth facing with enthusiasm the exams that will open the doors for you to do so.

5.- Practice past papers.

Access previous years’ exam papers to familiarise yourself with the type of questions asked. This will give you an idea of how to structure your answers more efficiently.

If you are an A-Levels student, your curriculum is focused on three or four subjects for you to understand in depth. This is important to bear in mind, as the British system is characterised by its focus on very specific subjects. So, to become a real expert in all of them, we encourage you to put into practice the advice we present to you with a view to the retakes that take place in October and November. Remember that effort always brings rewards, but don’t forget the value of looking after yourself too and taking care of yourself.
