    The old spec papers are also really useful to use, these can be found on the old spec site for past papers on AQA. The only thing you need to be careful about is what is in the spec, for example you dont need to answer questions on space for p3! Love this thread though, how and when are you guys going to start revising?

    Yeah a lot of things have changed, one has to be careful and I need to start now as my teachers are not great! I'm probably going to summarise the CGP books and then make question cards. What about you?

    Same really, two of my science teachers are great, but one is awful! I've bought these three revision guides and they are absolutely fantastic!

    They are approved exclusively by AQA and they contain literally everything you need to know on every single unit (Im retaking unit 1 biology this summer which is included all in the same book) I really would recommend these books as AQA often look for key words in examinations and all of these are highlighted in the book. Basically, i would really recommend you to buy these books! Im probably going to start revision on good friday for my summer exams, whilst battling with unfinished art coursework!

    I have those too! I agree they are superb, i use them with the CGP books and it works a treat. Controlled assessments are frustrating I agree

    Was all A*s but now 2 in Physics and Chemsitry is more realistic with an A in Biology. Not too worried about that though as I'm taking Maths. FMaths Chem and Physics at AS. How about you?

    As for revision made a timetable last week but already not kept to it. :-)

    My Chem ISA was on self-heating cans if I remember, Physics on Hook's Law and Bio on Osmosis and diffusion in a Potato.

    Hi!!!

    I'm sitting all 3 as well as P1. What are your target grades?
    Im predicted A*'s in all sciences, however its looking more like A* in bio and phi and then an A in chem. However A*'s are still achievable but im not confident in chemistry

    Okay, why the neg?

    Yes same for me but with Biology needing probably around 96 ums so still possible but not as confident as with the others.

    Haven't got a clue what the conversion rate was but probably quite high.

    What were your Jan results? I just did B1 and got 80ums, thats why I'm down from the A* by quite a bit!

    Chemistry unit 1 - 100 UMS (a*)
    Chemistry unit 2 - 91UMS (a*)
    Chemistry ISA - 100 UMS (a*)

    why negative rep? Thanks to all the haters, brilliant, just brilliant!
