Science GCSE HELP !!!!!!

    • Thread Starter

    I have a science test in about 3-4 weeks GCSE (11%) of GCSE Biology.
    How can I obtain an a*

    By working hard.

    Past papers! Make sure you know pretty much all the content first (by making notes, mindmaps, reading the textbook etc, whatever works for you) then try out a few papers, and mark them against the mark scheme. You'll soon learn what you need to say to get the marks. Hope you get the A*!

    Learning how the examiners think is key
    read the questions in past papers then read the mark schemes. I did that and after a while i could bullet point every point on the mark scheme
    also read the examiners report, they show where students normally loose marks, this will help make sure you don't fall into any traps
    also work hard, ask for help, make sure you fully understand the topics
    good luck

    Well i find the revision guide unbelievably helpful; i read over what i want to remember, understand it and then make diagrams explaining it to myself. I did this 2 weeks before my mocks and got 3 a*s for all the sciences!

    Buy revision guilds and read the specification.

    Cover all of the content then do past paper. Whatever question you get wrong go back and look at how to do the question and learn that part of the content again.
