Here’s what our experts say about getting ready for your A Level exams

VP of Content Astrid deRidder

Although it was a long time ago, I learned an important lesson on the morning of my exam! Never drink a triple strong caramel macchiato (for the first time!) right before the exam! I thought it would help with my nerves, but it just made the jitters much worse! Do yourself a favour: eat a sensible breakfast and drink lots of water, but stay away from the coffee!

Mnemonics and acronyms can be a great way to remember lists or long processes, especially if they are funny.

Excellent Resource and Service

I highly recommend Save My Exams. I am studying A-Level Biology, Chemistry and Physics and have found the course material to be thorough and easy (as can be) to understand. Hopefully I can force my memory to retain the information well enough to gain great grades in my exams! The customer service team (Jessica, in particular) are friendly and helpful, so don't hesitate to ask if you need help.

Great helpful website

Easy to use, great for any A level spec. Questions by topic are very accurate representations of the real life exam paper. Would recommend it to anyone especially retake students outside of school.

A Levels are post-16 school qualifications that usually mark the end of high school or secondary school studies. They are used as entry requirements for universities and colleges.

A Levels are harder than GCSEs because you only study 3 or 4 in the same school time that you studied many more GCSEs. You have to go deep into the subject though if you enjoy your A Level choice subjects, you may find the study easier than the wide range of GCSEs that you have done.

In theory, there is no limit, although most students take 3 or 4 A Levels. Some take 5 or more but that requires a very high time input, which may or may not be supported by the school.

Further Maths is generally regarded as the hardest, as it requires a strong predicted grade at A Level Maths. After that, the 3 sciences (Physics, Chemistry and Biology) and Maths make up the top five.

A Levels finish in June of your final year in high school / secondary school; this is normally at age 17 or 18.

There is no such thing as an easy A Level, however, the level of difficulty for A Level subjects can vary greatly depending on individual strengths, interests, and study habits. While some students may find certain A Level subjects easier, others might struggle with the same subjects. That being said, some students tend to find certain A Level subjects more accessible due to their nature or prior background. Subjects like Psychology, Sociology, Business Studies, and Media Studies are often considered by some students to be relatively easier because they may involve less complex mathematical or scientific concepts.

A Levels are graded A*, A, B, C, D and E for a pass grade. Fails are denoted as U (unclassified).

The typical requirement for university admission is three A Levels. However, the exact number of A Levels required can vary depending on the university and the specific degree. You should always check the entry requirements if you are interested in a particular course.

From £390 per subject, although the cost can be over £1500 for science A Levels with practicals.

There are generally a number of things you will need to do to resit your A Levels: 1) Registration: Contact your school or exam centre to register for the desired subjects' re-sits. 2) Exam Board: Inform your exam board (e.g., AQA, Edexcel) about your intent to re-sit and ensure you have the correct syllabus and materials. 3) Fees: Pay the required re-sit fees to your exam centre. 4) Preparation: Review your subject materials, practice past papers, and seek additional support if needed. 5) Exam Dates: Check the exam timetable for re-sit dates and locations. 6) University Offers: Inform universities if your re-sits impact conditional offers. Remember deadlines and consult your school or exam centre for specific guidance on re-sitting A Levels. Also remember that you can still re-sit A Levels after you have begun a university course, for example, if you are hoping to use improved results to switch to a different university course for your second year and beyond. And finally, remember that all the grades you receive on A Levels (original and resit) will be reported as part of your UCAS application. Most universities will just consider the higher grade, but some (especially for some highly competitive courses) may decide to take all your scores into account when deciding on your application.
