    Has anyone started revising for this exam, and if so, how are you revising?
    My teacher told the class that there will be a 10 mark question!

    Haha, when he first said it I was apprehensive about it tbh. I think it was his way of trying to get the class to revise!
    Anyway, have you started revising? How's it going so far, if you are?

    Biology: Read over but not covered content comfortably.

    Chemistry: I think I'm comfortable with all of it

    Physics: P4+5 are definitely fine, but P6 I'll go over...

    We still haven't done coursework... We had to do research over thee holidays! :mad:

    I'd say you need a very high A in the next exam for an A* overall

    Section D is basically general science and skills

    So there's nothing specific to learn for it because my teachers haven't even spoken about it to us yet.

    Nope! It's common sense, although last year for core it was on biofuels (no specific knowledge needed)

    I haven't been taught anything
