    U chose History ?
    WHTS ib ?
    I did English A Lang and Lit, German A Lang, Maths, Additional Maths, Double Award Science, French, Geography, History

    IB is an alternative to A-levels. We study 6 subjects instead of 3/4 and we need to take two languages, maths, a science (or two), a social science, and art (or second science instead of art).

    Smh it's GCSE there isn't exactly must detail to show tbh
    Imo CGP is just bit summarised and the diagrams aren't the best, also they can be a bit cringy...
    the aqa science cgp books tbf dont look that bad but still

    also 'Smh it's GCSE there isn't exactly must detail to show' is not true.

    I mean you can't just say you don't need detail it's GCSE, then why would you
    bother buy a textbook

    Comparatively the depth required for GCSE is very little when set alongside A-Level for obvious reasons, and imo and at least for me a textbook is a tool to supplement a main source of learning and it is critical that it is presented concisely so for AQA Science I find their STUDENT BOOKS to be of great help.

    Though the same can't exactly be said of their cringeworthy, crammed revision guides so on that I agree with you.

    Hi I'm Roheena! I'm basically taking the same stuff but instead of psychology and business I'm taking Latin and History. Revision wise at the minute, I'm kinda just writing out a set of revision notes a few days after learning the stuff in class... I don't know but it seems to help me 🙂 I've also looked at the specifications for what I'm doing so I know exactly what I need to know, did that make sense?

    Ok your last lines was precisely what I meant by the 'crammed revision guides'.
    I agree with what your saying and i'm sure the AQA Science ones are great for that specification, sadly the OCR ones weren't as good so I bought different ones

    i didnt buy new ones, i never bought the ones which i labeled as 'crap'

    if your refering to this:
    'sadly the OCR ones weren't as good so I bought different ones' then you slightly misunderstood, but my bad. I never owned the OCR CGPs just breifly looked at them when I went out, and I didn't really like the look.

    I still bought OCR ones, I don't think it's good idea to buy AQA for OCR:dry:

    In biology we did like genes and inhereitance and stuff, and in chemistry like atmosphere and activaition energy for certain reactions.
    I got 16/20 in my chemistry which was one of the highest which i was quite please about, although i am gonna start revising a lot more after school because I really want those high grades
