    I am revising everyday for a minimum of three hours for my GCSE's. Regardless of this, I continue to achieve A grades in Physics, Biology, and Chemistry. I watch videos and try quite hard but can never managed to get to that A*. Any ideas?
    Thanks in advance.

    Not sure if the site's changed much since I had to use it (I know lots of screwing about with the syllabus went down from about 2013 onwards) but GCSE Bitesize was an absolute lifesaver. With the quizzes and activities and stuff it got you to actively do something to revise the material rather than just sit there reading/watching stuff which I found helped a lot. Weirdly they didn't have any resources for C3, B3 or P3 though
    CGP revision guides are also very good - everything's written down in a pretty lighthearted manner and you get practise questions after every chapter. (Speaking of practice questions, it may be worth hunting down past papers if you can find them for your syllabus!)

    Aside from watching videos, what else do you do to revise?

    Lol. I revised barely 30minutes a week and got 100% in chem physics and 98.5% in biology at GCSE. Sorry but if your failing biology then you must not understand survival of the fittest those with best genetics perform best excluding environmental factors. Simple as. The only thing you can do is spend a minimum of 6 hours.
