Hi all, I was wondering how many of you guys are taking the B1, C1, P1 & B2, C2, P2 exams for higher tier starting on the 14th May. If you are, please feel free to share how you revise for this, what questions you think there will be in the exam.

I'm being really honest with myself and I have to say that I have only just started revising for all of the exams. Are there any revision tips that I should use (specifically for these exams).

Feedback is much appreciated.

Thanks

Hi
I'm just resitting P1 and doing all the 3s, but I would say that past papers are the key, as well as revision guides and just take in and understand as much of the content as possible.

Hope that helps and that your exams go well.

Hi there!

I'm sitting the P2 and C2 exams in summer. (Sat all the ones last year and C2 in November) For each exam, as someone has said before, I make sure I understand everything in the specific text books and revision guides. I do this by making notes on each unit (ie P2.1, B2.4 etc etc), as well as drawing out any necessary diagrams. When I fully understand the topic and am ready for any question about that specific area I move on to the next one. At the end of my revision session i'll read through all my notes to re-assure myself I know those specific units.

Good luck in your exams with some solid revision you'll go in there and destroy them!

hi, I'm taking both exams this year!
I have only just started revising for P2,B2,C2 which is my first exam
I do mindmaps for every topic of each subject then once ive read through those I do a past paper.
Past papers are defo the best way to do well in an exam and you can find them on the exam board website.
Hope that helped

I'm doing C1, C2, and C3.

For me, the magic keys are past papers, examiners' reports, and being familiar with the mark scheme. I also have revision posters on my wall for each module. Revision posters is something new for me. I've never tried it before but so far so good

Good luck on all of your exams everyone!

Hi all, what I've been doing is getting post it notes and sticking them all over my revision guide (CGP). I feel it helps me learn better this way and also, ask your teacher to give you some recent past papers as i've managed to get hold of a January 22nd 2013 B2 paper which is not on the AQA site.

Good luck all!

I'm taking B1 and C1 higher tier,there both retakes as I didn't bother revising last year and ended up with a B and C :/. I got an A* in P1 so I've worked out that I need to get 85ums in each paper to get an A* overall in core science ! I should be able to achieve this if I put the effort in but I'm still really stressing myself about them seeing as I done so bad last year !

I've got my P2 and B2 in the next couple of weeks and if I get about 90 ums in both I'll get an A* which I think is quite achievable if I put in some effort...don't revise like I do, I just sit and read through notes and my revision guide:| luckily the way I am I can take it in but it's just getting the details that I miss by revising so quickly

B2 (Missed it because of snow), B3
C3
