    I remember reading somewhere that teaching someone else about a topic often helps with remembering it. With this in mind, I've decided to try and answer people's questions regarding GCSE sciences (preferably AQA p2/p3, b2/b3 and c2/c3). If anybody has any questions about the topics, leave a response or PM and I'll try to construct as good of an answer as possible. Perhaps even PM me a Skype name and I may even consider a brief tutor-like session. I am only a student, however, so might not be on par with other sources, but I'd like to think this idea is mutually benificial!

    Okay, from memory:
    -The pancreas and salivary glands are used to produce 'digestive juices'.
    -The stomach and small intestine are used for digestion.
    -The liver produces bile to aid digestion
    -The large intestine is used for water is absorbed from undigested food, making faeces

    As far as I remember the bile bit is a bit vague, it is an alkali substance so that it neutralises the acidity of food entering the small intestine. Did b2 like a year ago so I might be wrong lol

    I didn't revise more than the night before in p1 c1 and b1 and got 87 89 and 94, I imagine with an additional few weeks I would've done better.

    Not trying to brag, just to help, and say I'm a little disappointed with the first grades, so I joined this forum for the same reason as you presumably. The best answer I can give you is probably, although the answer is subjective (it depends on how quickly you learn, or how effective your revision technique is I imagine. You seem intelligent though, so I'd imagine 6 weeks is plenty of time.
