There is no 'secret'. Just do loads of past papers, get the revision guides and know your modules thoroughly. Practise, practise, practise.
When I did my GCSEs I was on OCR, and I literally did every single past paper I could find, some of them twice. I got 3A*s and I think that's what really helped - you might see that certain questions come up most years, or really similar questions.
Do literally every past paper available so you can get used to the sort of questions they ask and get a clear idea of what you need to revise. Systematically work through each section of the syllabus for your revision - remember that for GCSE you don't necessarily have to understand things too well, as you can get away with just rote-learning a set answer by picking out the wording of the syllabus. Bitesize and my-gcsescience.com are great but sometimes they can be a bit vague. There are loads of videos on youtube, just search for the topic you want.
Hi can you help me please
I dont know how to revise the specification
i dont think reading it is gonna keep it stuck in my brain
please reply asap
memorise the text book, imprint it on your brain and know what the questions are asking you, they are all just looking for trigger (key) words...
[QUOTE=ILovePancakes;47297077]I practically only used him and got A*s in chem and physics and an A in bio.. made notes alongside the videos and just learnt the specifications really. He explained the parts of the specification I didn't understand.[/QUOTE
Learn the specification? I don't understand how you can? its quite brief? allow it my exams in 3 weeks and i need all the help i can get
i feel like i can revise, but not remember.
which actually sucks considering i want an A, i just got an A in my ISA so 25% is done but yeah you can understand the panic
1. make notes
2. do past papers
3. go on mygcsescience.com
PAST PAPERS AND ANY OTHER QUESTIONS! Then you can go over what ever else you don't know already- it saves so much time IMO but then I am not a revision person so anything that reduces the time spent memorising facts and reading textbooks and replaces that with answering questions and actively thinking is good
