Helll there, i will be sitting for my as level exams in 10 days which is on 12 th of october 2015, im taking maths physics biology and chemistry, maths isnt a problem, but the other 3 are, well because i wasted too much time , and now theres only 10 days, ive only done about 10% of bio ,chem and physics, i really need help, should i just do past papers now while referring to the notes and mark scheme, or should i try to finish the syllabus as fast as possible ? Thank you so much guys, i would really appreciate your help

For maths print out loads of past papers and do them. If you don't get a question from your past paper, ask a teacher if possible or your parents, may be a friend. I don't know much about preparation for the sciences as i didn't take them, but i did take maths and further maths. As far as not knowing the syllabus, this is quiet tricky, you cant really do an exam with loads of theory without knowing the theory. You could try to find a compressed course online. If you do fail your sciences badly i think you can retake them in January, depending on your examination board. Biggest advice would be to actually learn stuff through out the year next time

Hey,
while researching for resources for CIE Physics, I stumbled across different resources. Do you already have notes and access to pass papers? If not here is a quick list to what I could find.

Physicshttp://daniellimjj.blogspot.co.uk/20...rnational.html (Notes) -This is really good because it covers all of the units with powerpoints which contain notes etc for revision. There are also summaries.
All past papers (from 2008-2014) and more notes:

Maths

(Video tutorials that teach the material) He is amazing:

Oh it's no problem.
Depends, for all the science courses? Do you know the content to some extent for the sciences or have you gone through some of the specifications for the three or are you just starting?

Yes for all the three science subjects, biology ,physics and chemistry , i would say about 10 % of the whole syllabus for bio and chem and about 15 % for physics , i did not concentrate due to video games and sport activities in college, oh and the exams are on the 12th of october 2015, which is chemistry paper 2 and the next day maths p1 , and aftrr about 5 to 6 days theres bio paper 2 , thank you for helping me out here

Ah I see. My best advice is to go through all you can and remaining focus. Try and go through the specifications but don't write detailed notes to save time as it's quite late to start doing so. Instead use other people's notes and write down things you need to remember. Once you've finished, go over some past paper questions. Then the time in between exams, use this to your advantage for extra time to do more practice questions and past papers. I will admit it's going to be stressful and you'll probably have to solely spend most of your time studying. My pleasure dude, good luck with everything.
