How do you revise for GCSE sciences?? Please help! Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have no idea how to revise for GCSE sciences and I have my exams I a few months.
    I know I need to achieve all A's to reach my predicted grade and am capable of this. However, I don't know how to revise?
    Should I write out all the information, mind maps, flash cards ?? I don't know.
    I know it depends on the type of learner you are but I am trying revision cards and they take a long time but does it work in the end? Please suggest revision methods for sciences especially chemistry.
    (I am doing AQA exam board and double science)

    Make sure you have good notes, then make questions out of them. For example; fact: "Blood contains a pigment called haemoglobin" now make this into a question: "what pigment does blood contain?". Once you have written out a test, fill it out, with all the answers using a DIFFERENT COLOURED Pen. You will pick up the answers easily because you have been subconsciously taking in the answers whilst trying to make questions. Got 8 A's at school by using this method hope it works for you!
