    Any tips would be appreciated - I am willing to try any methods. If you have done GCSE how did you find it and what grade did you get?
    Thanks

    I do A level Chemistry right now - got an A* at GCSE. Aiming for an A* at A level as well
    My revision methods have changed a lot since GCSE, but some things still remain the same:
    - Print off the specification, go through it periodically ticking off the areas that you can do and going over the areas you're unsure about. Keep doing this over and over even on the day of the exam.
    -Past papers, do ALL of them and then annotate over them whatever extra info you could have added to a question/what they could have asked to expand on the question
    -Buy a revison guide and highlight/annotate over it and do all the questions.

    Thank you for these, they are very valuable. I want to take A-level too. Would it be worth looking at the A-level topics to help at GCSE or should I just focus on GCSE?

    If you can offer any more advice on other subjects can you take a look on here for me:

    I'd say just focus on gcse. A level Chem is much more of a killer than gcse.
