    Can you give me some tips for exam technique? And for those experimental and investigation questions/suggesting improvements and all.
    My teacher taught us "CORMSS" for the six mark experiment questions.

    C = Change - What you're changing
    O = Observation - What you are looking to happen
    R = Reliability - How you make it a fair test
    M = Measurement - What you're measuring
    S = Same - What you're keeping the same
    S = Same - (Always include two things you will not change)

    Just formulate this into what it's asking and there you have 6 marks in the bag

    My teacher makes sure we know everything and a bit of extra knowledge can't hurt, might even boost examiners faith in our generation, because so little people take this seriously (at least in my school)

    If you're asked to write an experiment then just remember CORMS and make sure you write for all the 5 letters trust me you'll get atleast a 6 out of 7. To get the 7th mark you'll have to enhance your answer a bit

    Do you guys reckon something about cloning, natural selection or selective breeding might pop up? I'm really weak on topics like fermentation and enzymes and the circulatory system - hope they don't come out. D:

    What does it actually do?
    Reabsorption of sodium chloride and some water, not sure we have to know that, but could be useful

    It can! It clearly states in the specification that you should be knowing about runners and cuttings.

    u just need to know about them ;
    *cutting is used when u cut the stem of a plant with some leaves attached and plant these in compost
    u need to know the main concept because they give questions that ask u indirectly about these things
    they r not straight away going to ask directly ......well i think they wont i guess!!!

    Just did a past paper and got 97/120.. as I'm doing Dual that equates to A*A* if I get 97 on Physics & Chemistry however that will definitely not happen.. Physics I'll probably get 85-90 at the very most and Chemistry I will probably get 65-70 at the most.

    Science for me is so unpredictable, sometimes I get high A*s, other times I literally get Ds... I am hoping for the best, and that the exams will be on topics I actually know.
