    No, I was asking about a word for students who have chosen a course for a certain study. Is it a degree course, a university course? or just study?*

    which the third edition ?
    Yes! I also HIGHLY RECOMMEND getting a cgp revision guide specifically tailored to your exam board. They are very useful, and explain everything clearly and concisely. They aren't too expensive either, probably about £5.

    I did OCR so I can't really say if this is true for the other exam boards but you get 9 test papers over the course of two years. The first three are the same as core science so P1,2 &3, C1,2&3. And B1,2&3. The second is additional science, so 4,5&6 for each and the last is further additional so 7 for each. The hardest exam by far is further additional. Just because it's one topic, don't let it fool you that there isn't a lot to learn. The revision guides that I bought did summary pages at the end of section and for core and additional they were both about 2 pages long, for further additional they were 5 pages long.

    As for revision guides I would recommend CGP because I found them really useful. If you are doing triple I would recommend buying them for each subject rather than each exam (e.g buying the textbook for GCSE chemistry rather than core science) because they have more information that's really good for triple science.

    As for topics, I don't know which exam board you do so I can't really say what topics you'll do.

    This may come off a bit cringy but as someone who's already done these exams, don't put the work off until last minute, triple science takes a lot of hard work

    Start revising for about an hour a night until about about 6-8 weeks before your exams and then try to dedicate as much of your time to revision. Make yourself a timetable tailored to what you normally do after school with which subject you're going to when and if you miss one for whatever reason, add it on to another day. Don't forget to leave yourself some down time too though, and take regular breaks in your revision. Turn off your phone and focus as much as you can. Forest is a good app for concentration. Reward yourself with whatever you enjoy.

    As for revision books, I recommend CGP because they're factual but easy to understand. It also gives you easy ways to remember things.

    So would you say an hour for each science subject: Chem, Bio and Phys?
    Or an hour in total?

    An hour for each subject of science, don't do them all on one night though. Maybe do two subjects a night depending on what other subjects you have taken. I found it helpful to give myself a day off as well, I picked sunday but you can go with whichever day suits you best.

    If any of you guys need help with triple, let me know, I finished triple (OCR 21st century) this summer and with the revision guides, some flash cards and lots of past papers I got A*A*A*. So just let me know, and good luck, it'll pay off in the end
