    I want to get A* across the board at GCSE and I was wondering if anyone had any unusual or proven tips for revision. I'm willing to try anything and as it is only October I have a few months to experiment.

    If you have any methods I would love to hear them and to hear what grades you got would be good.

    Thanks

    Are you already close to achieving A*? If not, what subjects are you struggling at?

    (It's easier to give subject specific revision advice)

    Well, I'm predicted A* across all of them, but subjects like Biology I don't like one bit. I want to take science at college so I need good grades.

    Thanks for your help

    Okay, what do you 'dislike' about it? Content or the application questions in the exam? Oh, and what board are you on?

    Edit: Wow, all predicted A*?! That's pretty amazing, sounds like you're revision methods are already working..

    Well for starters, the teacher we have tells us not to take notes and wait until they have given us a task, which means we don't necessarily get the detail. Also, we have just done a topic on plants and I found this easier than learning about humans and I don't know why. I think the reason I dislike it is because I find it difficult to understand the fine details of processes and that means I can't fully apply them to exam questions.

    By the way we are using OCR Gateway B.

    Yeah all A* is what they want me to get (no pressure like) and I was only asking about different revision methods to give a bit of variety.
