I've been really struggling with science GCSE recently and can't find a revision method that suits me. I did my mocks last month and got D's in all (triple science). I had to do a biology test last week and with the little revision I did got a low C. I not have to retake my mocks in two weeks and need to learn p1, p2, p3, b1, b2, b3, c1, c2 and c,3, which will decide weather I do foundation or higher. I know mocks don't mean much, but I really want to revise early and get at least B's in all my sciences. I really try with revision but I can't learn from revising my revision guides, and I've tried doing summaries and drawings myself but they don't really help me learn anything. I've really got to do the best I can to do well in my mocks but I can't revise and would really appreciate knowing what methods and resources are out there that people use (my exam board is OCR gateway)? Thank you!

Past papers are the best revision. Just work away at them until you get it, using the book when you don't know something.

There really is not substitute for hard work.

i am the same, and i am hopefully doing half my GCSE science exam this year and the best way i work is by re-writting my notes or doing exam questions, i know it may sound boring but that just how I learn

Past papers will determine what you know. Do one and use the revision guide to go over the stuff you got wrong, but when you do finish papers, use the mark scheme to help you in understanding how to answer questions.
