    Had mocks recently got U's in both, in weekly assessments I get U's regularly. I do revise before you ask, I revise by making notes out of text book answering questions in textbooks, making presentations and flashcards. Yet I am still failing -.-

    Try doing past papers and then marking them, pay particular attention to the mark scheme and how they have worded their answer. Any words underlined MUST be included in your answer to score the mark. These are key words and you should make a note of them.

    All of my friends that did well focused their revision heavily on mark schemes in science, it should be relitively easy to move from a U to a high C or low B just by doing this.
