    When you say Classics do you mean Greek and Latin? I nearly took Latin this year but decided that I couldn't face another language! Kind of regret it now though, I wish I had done Latin instead of German!

    One thing that my biology teacher taught me for paper two of ISAs: if in doubt, data it out! Basically use data is every question possible, maybe try and manipulate it (e.g. X was double Y)

    No I did all my ISAs in year 10, but I do hold the record for the highest biology ISA that my teacher has ever marked! I did an oscillations one last year for physics as my first ISA. Only other bit of advice so can give is to read the case studies really carefully! I can't even remember m chemistry ISA though, but I think we did rate of reactions.

    This is a very good website for revision;
    http://www.my-gcsescience.com/

    This website has checklists for B1, B2, B3, P1, P2, P3 and C1, C2 and C3 which are free. The core science videos are free without any charge on the website or you can also find the core science videos on his youtube channel. Type "myGCSEscience" on youtube. You have to pay for the unit 2's and 3's which are only available on the website but it's worth it. Some of the videos you have to pay for have been uploaded by others on youtube so just type "myGCSEscience [unit you want e.g. p2)". I paid for the videos because the unit 2's and 3's were not available a year back but you can access them for free.

    This man is great managed to get a C/D student like me up to A*/A.
    hi i see that you use my gcse science. do you just watch his videos or do you take notes down while watch them?
