    Hi Raja, unfortunately I received quite bad AS level results and I am forced to retake year 12. I will be doing maths, economics and applied ICT. You’ve explained how to tackle subjects like maths and economics in the book but could you give me some advise on ICT?
    Also, will the fact I’m doing 3 subjects stop me from studying computer science at a top university?

    • anshulraja1 says:

      Hi Henry,

      ICT is quite coursework based so it’s important you manage your time correctly. Students who pro actively set their own deadlines and complete work on time excel over other students who don’t. If you find yourself continuously doing all-nighters – something is wrong! Trust me!

      To your 2nd question, I don’t see how doing 3 subjects can stop you from doing CS at a top university. However, I would check university prospectuses carefully.


      P.s. CS is a fantastic course to study – there is high demand for programmers in the UK and that demand is only going to increase over the next few years.

    Hi ,
    i recently bought the kindle version of this book and have been reading it ever since , its very interesting and its a real eye opener. I’m a bit puzzled with the repetition theory revision timetable. Did you mean you would study the entire unit and then repeat afterwards or study the individual chapters within the unit perfect those chapters and then move on to the next unit?

    • anshulraja1 says:

      Hi Nosa,

      Thank you for reading our book. With the repetition revision time table, I preferred completing an entire unit and then repeating afterwards. After you are done with the first layer on one unit then move on to the first layer of another unit.

    Hi Raja,
    I really need your advice and help.
    I have bought your book and I’m reading it while using it to help guide me along with my A levels but I have a lot of questions. First, I hope it’s ok if I give you a bit of my background to year 12 and my situation? This year, I sat exams for AS English Literature, Physics and Chemistry but got really poor grades: EUU. I only technically passed English literature so was advised to resit year 12 again. A teacher said another option would be me becoming a private candidate which would mean I’d have to pay to sit exams, find my own tutor while self teaching these three A levels.

    I’ll have 10 exams in total, 2 praticals (A2) and sets of coursework for English Literature to be all done in a year for next summer. This seems super stressful and as a bad idea and thought maybe I should just resit year 12. But then, I realised if I did this, I can avoid the new A level reforms and after take a gap year which I really would like so I can gain more experience in the field I would like to enter. I don’t really know the content though for AS Physics and Chemistry, I know parts of the content but not well so it would mean me learning everything in a year while revising for these 10 exams in summer and doing coursework. I remember there was a section in your book talking about balancing AS & A2 exams and that though it may seem that you should start learning/revising for AS first, do A2 first but how does someone do A2 first if they are very weak in AS? A2 seems almost impossible to understand because I don’t have the foundation from AS, which is why I wanted to ask if I began with AS first then began to learn A2 in January/February, is this too late? Or could I learn A2 and AS together? Some AS level modules in Physics and Chemistry match a lot of the A2 modules, A2 is a continuation from chapters so I was thinking should I do that?

    I just want to spend the little time I have very wisely and productively. My fear is being a month away from exams and still having many chapters to learn like last year. But I also want to learn these three subjects well enough to do well in the exams next year, aiming high in terms of grades.

    • anshulraja1 says:

      Hi Chelsy,

      Thank you for reading our book and getting in touch. I still think it’s important to learn your A2s first because it’s so easy to neglect them when you’re doing a lot of retakes. I did the same thing during my 2nd year for 3 sciences and maths. I never really had to go back to my AS modules when learning the A2 – if I did it would only be a quick brush up on a topic. However, if your A2 modules rely heavily on the AS ones, by all means revise them first as this would be more efficient.

    Hey raja,
    I had sent a message before, I’m not sure if you’ve read it and seen it but I’d really appreciate your reply and advice.

    I am currently living in UAE and when I applied to receive the kindle version of the book, it stated that it is unavailable and therefore I wasn’t able to buy it. Now, I am settling for the paperback however, it seems to be unavailable too. I really need that book as I am spending a whole year gap to retake my subjects again, and from thousand of reviews, I can deduce that this will definitely help me.

    I would appreciate your help to purchase the book as soon as possible.

    Thank you so much.

      Hi Alex,

      I’ve tried to send the book to the middle east several times before but the customs laws are too strict. However, I may be holding a workshop in November in Dubai where I’ll present all the concepts in the book in more detail. Would you be interested in attending?

      Many thanks,

      • Alex says:

        Hi Raja,

        Yes, of course I will be interested in attending! Is there any form I have to fill to save myself a seat from now?

        Best regards,
