Ahhhh, next Tuesday I have both my IGCSE ICT Practical Exam and also my first IGCSE Science Paper which is Paper 1b.

Does anyone know what this paper will contain? Past papers for 1b state its Biolgy, is this likely to be the same?

I've self taught but gave up half way through so now I'm worrying!!! Does anyone know of any solutions to learning new things quickly?

I think I'll be OK for the ICT it's the Science I'm worrying about.

Yep - sounds about right because I have one on Thursday too!
What times are your exams? I guess there the same.

I also have one next week Tuesday and Thursday.

Do you have any tips for revision?

cant remember exactly but i think they are in the afternoon. For tips i think you should learn a lot of key words and watch revision videos on youtube and go through the specification and make notes on it. Thats what i have done

I'm resitting my Science Double Award, they add up all three scores and mark down your grade which can be BB If you got around 190 marks across the board.

So it's across the board? Basically overall mark when adding each paper up?

so if I got 20 for chemistry and 40 for biology but got 110/120 for the last paper I could still get a good grade? That's just an example
