    Start now and get used to revising because GCSEs are nothing to a levels you'll need those revision techniques if you choose a level.

    I won't be taking A Levels as I am looking to go and study in the US, so I shall be taking IB. Should I only be revising for my science exam?

    Revise for everything! Don't limit your options by not revising some of your subjects.

    Indeed, you are able to utilise the books for the AQA board, seeing as I'm working against AQA and am using those fantastic resources myself.

    Do every past paper you can, get someone to test you on everything, get the specification and make sure you know it inside out - it's easy to think you know something after reading it through once or twice, but doing past questions will help you realise if you actually do, and will also give you a good idea of the types of questions the exam boards frequently ask
