Yes but not everyone is the same, I understand it’s easy but it’s a lot of information to take in considering there’s only a month left and that’s why I need good revision ideas because I don’t know how to take all that information in in such a short amount of time

For starters if you bothered to understand how he new science GCSE’s r set out you would know...
I did my mock exam which was compared at national level. I achieved a grade 7 by getting an average of 40% for combined science.
The mocks we did were compared to other students from different schools.
In essence the top 4% will get a grade 9

And most likely the GCSE’s will be similar difficulty therefore grade boundaries will be low

Ah okay, so you got an average of 28? I’m on about an average of 47 per paper, do you know what that’d be?

If that’s aqa and You were compared nationally then that should easy be a grade 9. My best was 38 marks and I still got a 7
