Hi there,

I am a student in year 11, currently working towards my GCSE triple science and I desperately want A*s in them. At the moment (despite having terrible teachers all along), I'm working at around an A in all three sciences.

I'd like to ask if anyone has any revision tips, advice, help, websites, or anything that will help me re-teach myself the entire course in the hopes of succeeding.

Something worth mentioning is that my teachers skipped over C1.6 (vegetable oils, etc), P1 (the big bang and light refraction).

Thank you.

I would go through the textbook and any class notes/other resources you have and make condensed notes/key points for each topic, then do practice questions to consolidate what you've learnt. If you struggle with anything, make a note of it and look through it again. Closer to the exams make summary mind maps for each chapter and concentrate on doing timed exam papers.
For the topics your teacher skipped, I would suggest you read up on the topic in your textbook, if you don't understand it youtubing the topic may offer more clearer explanations.

look through your textbooks as they will help. You could also try looking at bitesize GCSE science as they have the three sciences and separate topics within them, there is not a lot but its worth trying their tests. My school also uses doddle and kaboodle but your school needs to be signed up for you to have an account.

Get some CGP revision guides and learn them. At GCSE level, that's really all there is to it. You just need to know the basics. It's extremely unlikely that anything that's really challenging will come up and, if it does, you won't be the only one who struggles with it and the grade boundaries will be lowered accordingly.

Even if your teachers haven't covered everything, GCSE content is easy to self-study. If you're good enough to get As, it shouldn't be a problem unless you've been out of education for some time and, given that you're in year 11, I doubt you have.
