    Hi Guys, so i thought i would start a thread for those taking the OCR 21st Century additional science exam (B6 P6 and C6) on the 13th June. So we could collaborate and talk about it together and discuss revision and ask any questions.

    How are you guys revising for it?

    I've also been making notes, highlighting and making model maps- trying to fit everything in a small amount of space to simplify everything. I understand most of the content but I am finding it difficult to concentrate and kinda memorise it. Our teacher has given us past papers from the OCR site and compiled some for us from the teacher guide I think.
    Any ideas on revision tips?

    I thought it was OK too. For the exothermic graph I put the lines in the right place, but arrow pointing up. Do think I'll get penalised

    I'd say 35 would be an A* maximum i've looked at triple science grade boundaries and i've predicted how certain science exams have different boundaries. This exam was not asking for you scientific knowledge, it was maths and "is she correct? Justify your answer" I know everything about the topics but most questions didn't require much knowledge...

    It's that low because it is a new spec. Plus for science you really need to be specific, some times i know everything but only get 40/60 which is sometimes 95 Ums

    I thought it was pretty easy tbh... but when I got the notes, I tried to learn them straight away and never looked at them again until yesterday when I did quite a bit of cramming (as well as this morning), so I guess everything was fresh in my mind :P

    What do you use for revision?
    For this exam I had a Collins revision guide (which was terrible as it had many spelling mistakes and their maths was slightly wrong), my notes from class, and I also used Bitesize
