Is anyone here doing edexcel triple science in June 2015 (B3,C3,P3)? If so I thought I'd make this thread so that we can all help each other out to ensure we get the best grade possible.

Is there any topic you guys find difficult? Personally I find P3 the hardest as it contains a LOT of maths questions. If so just comment below and hopefully either myself of others will do our best to help you out.

I also found this awesome channel for edexcel C3 which has helped me out considerably, so I would definitely check it out and subscribe: http://youtu.be/6JiZPeiKAhs

Does anyone know any good youtube channels/ videos for B3 and P3?

Hi

I am doing edexcel triple science as well. I personally find P3 the hardest as well and I just hate revising for it. I haven't really started revising for the extension units yet. I am focusing on the additional ones because they are first. I am planning to start practicing past papers from the third week of april. Have you finished revised everything yet?

I've started revising for B3, C3 and P3 as there's a lot of content to remember. Trying to do a little everyday. And with Additional, I've also started but I think I'm alright with all the twos as we did it last year and this year. There doesn't seem to be much past papers for the extension units. :/ How are you revising for the additional?

Ikr!! There is only one past paper for the extension units which is really annoying. Basically, I finished writing my notes and I bought a few revision guides and I am comparing them and picking out every little information. I personally think CGP is quite helpful for extension and additional. I am kind of upset though because I got an 'A' in my controlled assessments now I have to work extra hard for the exam to get an A/A*. What did you get for your controlled assessments?

Basically :

- Use the edexcel textbook as it has all the information needed
- I used flash cards for revision
- Use and go through the specification
- Use past papers!! ( BEST TIP)

Do not stick to using revision guides! They sometimes miss out little topics such as one time a question about chemo-synthetic bacteria came up and it wasn't in the guide

There are actually three papers for each B3,P3 and C3. There is a sample paper, June 2013 and June 2014 which has been recently released. If you have any problems accessing these papers I can always email it to you

Well done! You are so lucky. Yeah I done my core science exam last year and I got an 'A'. To be honest I found the papers quite hard. What did you get?

Yeh same here got an A (which I am very happy with). I think I found the physics (as usual) the hardest. I just really don't like physics. :/

That's awesome, well done. I'm guessing you do sciences for AS/A Level?

Pretty much just not really for History (which I will start soon). Which exam board do you do for ICT?

Can understand (hate physics as well). I'm thinking about doing Biology and Chemistry next year also. Which one would you say you find the hardest? heard Chemistry A-Level is really HARD!!
