    You can do it! Never give up, if it's formulas remember that they give you a formula sheet but you need to remember the units. Which videos did you watch because these don't bore you as they're short and precise:

    A great hard-core revision template is to do the following:
    Read, Say, Cover, Write, Check, Repeat. By repeating this over and over you'll eventually find that it imprints itself into your mind.

    Alternatively if you wish to avoid the repetition I've been using a fantastic website called Tassomai. Before I get blamed for advertising it does cost money for the course but I have to say that it really worked for me. I am much more confident now about my GCSE's as an A/A* scientist than I was at the B/C grade. Tassomai offers you a free mini test at first so you don't have to plunge right in.

    Hope this helps

    Are you doing past papers?
    Make sure you keep doing them over and over again as the questions are very similar each year.

    What topics are you struggling with?

    PLEASE don't worry about the equations- theres not that many in chemistry (compared to physics) ! Learn your empirical formulas as they are normally a lot of marks. I recommend my-gcsescience.com and if you don't have a subscription, message me I'll send you a link to them

    Equations and remembering all of the formula
    Print out a worksheet of equations and try to do them. The more equations you do, the more practice you'll have and the easier it'll become for you.

    With formulas you have to keep writing them out until you've memorised them.

    One mistake I made- I didn't bother learning the colour changes with ions etc. so I lost a few marks because of that.
    Make sure you learn all those because they're worth quite a bit in the exam.
