I do the sciences with Edexcel, but I would be happy to offer any help I can give I think that a common you-tube channel people use if they do AQA science is mygcsescience, so you might want to check it out... As for revision, my advice is to use flashcards - they're brilliant for helping you to memorise key equations and definitions, ect. Other than that ... experiment. Try mind maps, you-tube, voice-recording, whatever works best for you Any particular probs?

I always find that learning the command words (discuss, state, explain etc.) helps me so much in mock exams and CAT tests. GCSE science can be quite straightforward once you learn what the question is actually asking you for so I would not just concentrate on learning content but also check mark schemes

http://www.aqa.org.uk/exams-administ...d-mark-schemes

http://qualifications.pearson.com/en...st-papers.html

to see how they want you to answer the questions. They will ask you similar questions on each exam so once you learn how the exams work, it might be a lot easier for you

Well, you're probably already familiar with it, but you could have a look at Bitesize Also, as has already been mentioned, the mark scheme is vitally important - they give you marks for things which you never thought to include in your answer, and take marks away for seemingly minor errors, so it'd definitely be worth it

The mark scheme sucks i guess but thank you so much again for your help.

The specifications and the CGP guides were what I used!
