    Whenever I have an exam like my recent core science unit 2, I start revising 1 week before the exam, and I revise for at least 1-2 hours a day. It is not good to revise on something from a month to exam day because you could forget information that may be needed in a specific exam. If you do this you are very likely to get a high grade like a B or A or even an A*

    I normally use a revision guide to revise, when I finish revising a section I go over it again , then another section twice then I go back to the first section to test myself or I use past papers(past GCSEs). I recently did my Core Science GCSE ,I am very sure that I have achieved an A.
