    Topics


    Topics:
    Diet
    Disease and pathogens
    The Nervous system
    The menstrual cycle
    Fertility treatment
    Plant hormones
    Homeostasis
    Drugs
    Testing Medical Drugs
    Recreational Drugs
    Adaptations
    Natural Selection
    Speciation
    Pyramids of Biomass and food chain
    Decay
    The Carbon Cycle
    Variation
    Genetics
    Reproduction and Cloning
    Genetic Engineering
    Evolution
    FOR EACH ABOVE TOPIC:
    1. Watch a video that briefly explainsthe concepts, you don’t need to make notes, I suggest MyGCSEscience but mostare good (Max. 10 minutes)

    2. Read information on that sametopic on bitesize (5 minutes)

    3. RE-watch the video (Max. 10mins)

    4. Write one paragraph in summary,wont take too long and you wont have to write a a lot. (5 mins)

    5. Re-read information andre-watch video if you think it would be useful.

    6. Record yourself explaining thetopic without any notes. This isn’ essential but might help and you an listenback afterwards.

    7. You can write another summaryparagraph without any help if it would be useful, not essential.

    Essential steps are:1,2,3, probably four.

    Do at least those stepsfor each topic.

    Once you have covered alltopics, ensuring you prioritise ones that you are weak at, listen to therecordings you have made or read over your summary paragraphs quickly.

    Do a B1 past paper, I’lllink one in a sec.

    What grade are you aimingfor?
    If you don’t get highenough in the past paper then watch videos on those topics. However, after this point donot stay up any later. Listen to recordings or podcasts before you go to sleepand stay calm. At the end of the day, you will be all right and if you don’t getan A/A* it isn’t the end of the world.

    I highly suggest doing as much as you can, do what I do and just watch the videos in bed and do it all on your phone, doesn't require masses of energy or moving about. Get to be lazy whilst still doing work, it might not be the most effective method but it's better than nothing. Have some self belief.

    I've only done one mock exam in November; I got 33/60. In Year 10, I scored 13/60, but I've improved a bit since.

    On the 2014 paper (a couple of months ago) I scored 38/60 which is the highest I have ever got.

    Last week in a specimen paper I got 21/60.
    You should do the same practise papers again so that you can go over the answers and use the mark scheme answers in your actual exam

    I'm in a mess for it. I should have revised earlier (yep, you heard it here first). But seriously I've ****ed up. I know about the Carbon Cycle, The Nervous System, Natural Selection, Fighting Disease but that's it.

    I can't be bothered making notes anymore. Should I just watch videos?

    Our exam starts at 13.15 tomorrow! What can I do in the morning (or tonight, feeling a bit tired though)?
    There's a guy who does AQA science videos on all the topics on YouTube, I think FreeScience Lessons
