Your actual GCSEs for the Sciences in May next year? That early?

To me, I think you misunderstand the entire content for B1, C1 and P1 etc or that you misunderstand some of the content. My advice would be to speak to your Science teacher about what you don't understand and he/she will be able to help you. However, if you do misunderstand the entire content then you're really in trouble as you'll probably have to relearn the content all over again and that's not an easy thing to do.

Secondly, do you have a revision guide? If so, you should use it for your revision as it should have you whether it's flash cards or making brief notes on a topic like Photosynthesis in Biology for example.

Finally, I don't think revision techniques are useless. Do have a read of what I've said about whether you understand the contents fully or part of the contents. If you understand part of the content that you can get help with the topic your stuck on and you should be fine with revising the other content you know regardless of which revision technique you use.

I did the same exam board and got A's for all sciences. I used the CGP textbooks which were very helpful. I'm selling them from 99p and honestly they are soo good. Really recommend! Good Luck!!

This one is for all sciences 1 and 2 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2720120832...84.m1555.l2649

This is a Chemistry question practice for C1, C2 and C3 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2720121060...84.m1555.l2649

This one is really helpful for Biology B1,B2 and B3 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2720121189...84.m1555.l2649

These are the P1, P2 and P3 revision guide and workbook http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2720121210...84.m1555.l2649

If you're doing the WJEC course like me then there's the bangor university website with a booklet on all sciences, b123 c123 and p123, theyre really short notes and covers everything you need to help you with exam. if not then start afresh and clear your mind of everything then go over it slowly and intelligently. dont let it out off your head, read and absorb. understand concepts by watching videos or searching up images of it on google like the nitrogen cycle (i really needed several of version of the nitrogen cycle to fully understand it, i struggled but i got it in the end) dont give up!
