    I would like too know how would I study for physics/biology and chemistry core science. I'm doing additional science next year. I would like too know should I write all my notes down and copy the notes next year from the book or should I print out my notes and copy it from next year? Does flashcards/revision cards help for core science?

    Keep all of your notes in the same place, be they on your computer or on paper. If they're on your computer, create separate files for core and additional science so that you know what to study for what exams. If they are on paper, keep them in a folder or something that will keep all of the relevant paper together.
    Honestly, for GCSE science, all you really need is a text book, the specification and some past papers. Keep reading through it and you can make brief notes around the pages of the textbook. To learn it, just rehearse it out loud or in your head, whatever works for you.
    Flash cards are great for learning definitions and short processes, but will not be very helpful when trying to do calculations (e.g. In physics).
    You might learn things well by listening to a teacher explaining things. If you are doing AQA gcse science, you may find my-gcsescience.com quite helpful.
    When doing last minute revision, I found the specification very useful: it's like a shorter version of a text book, telling you everything you need to know. You can find the specifications on the websites of your exam board. Mine was aqa, but you may be using OCR or EDEXCEl etc. If I was looking for my gcse exam biology specification, I would google "aqa gcse biology specification".
    hope this is helpful

    GCSEs don't need huge amounts of revision. Pay attention in class, and keep your attendance up so that you understand everything. If you feel like you're getting behind then ask your teacher (or on TSR) to explain what you don't get. Revision-wise, the spec and the CGP guide cover what you need to know pretty well.
