Ali's A-Level Resources

Resources I compiled whilst completing my A-Level studies (2019-21). These resources enabled me to achieve 3 A* grades and have subsequently been used by students to help themselves develop their knowledge and skills increasing their own performance. I now study at the University of Cambridge. My notes relate to the following subjects and corresponding exam board, but will still be useful across different boards: English Literature - Edexcel, Economics - Edexcel, Religious Studies - OCR
