    For Biology Chemistry and Physics GCSE does the CGP revision books have all the information needed to get full marks in the paper? And if anyone has any tips for the exam that would be very helpful!

    It has pretty much everything. I got full mark's in one bio exam and an average of 80-90% for all my science exams (except physics, I was never that good). CGP the two nights before was all the revision I ever did and I survived.

    CGP revision guides are really good, I'd recommend :yep: But I'd also recommend to have something from the AQA exam board too though, so you can refer back to it

    Would definitely recommend the CGP books - helped me loads last year. Thankfully my year had mygcsescience, can't describe how useful he was. From my understanding, he's only put the unit 1 vids for free

    You've gotta revise loads for science. Do loads of past papers too - that should help enormously

    I am doing all three at GCSE as well. For all three my school sold the revision guides and workbooks so i have them as well.

    I would advise you to read the CGP guide, re-read it then summarise the page so you have the key info and highlight the things you struggle. Then work on the workbook - by doing so i mean answering the questions and re-doing the ones you aren't confident at! This will hopefully allow you to absorb the information you need to know - i'm a visual learner so i prefer colour, diagrams and mindmaps. Re-writing things will help you to memories key facts (especially science i have found).

    I am in year 10 but have GCSE mocks in about 6 weeks. I started revising before the holidays (but that's just me!). You may prefer to revise closer towards the week so you remember more. I was apprehensive about mocks and whether to revise for them or not but with advice and guidance I was told it is vital you revise effectively because mocks are the foundation to your actual exams. Plus when it comes to GCSE exams in 2016 you will have some knowledge of what to expect!

    Hope i've helped
