    I'm not the greatest when it comes to science, however I want to tackle that and become the greatest; I'm in year 11 so I'm gonna have to work hard I presume.

    But is anyone here willing to help me with some good sites to use or any revision tips? I got a very rubbish grade for my core exam in science (we had to the gcse in year 10 for some reason) (GRADE: E) I'm willing to actually work my a** off to get into higher and get atleast a B or an A, even A* if so.

    Help!

    My no.1 tip - Learn and memorise your definitions.

    What is a mole?
    What is the SI unit of pressure?
    What is DNA?
    What is osmosis?

    etc. It makes things so much easier if you've committed the core concepts to memory.

    Make notes on cards such as definitions and abbreviations. Read them over and over again until you remember them.

    I know how you feel! I have my mocks in 2 weeks and I was meant to spend my whole half term revising for them.. its Friday and I haven't done much at all.. opps... I have found that freesciencelessons on youtube has really helped me. Its only like 4 minute videos and I make notes along side it. I find that I learn a lot more through that than the actual lessons I get taught. I get bored really easily so as they are around 3-4 minutes it helps a lot. I have also recently found this app that's called gojimo which has like all gcse subjects on. It does quizzes on the whole units,so say c2, and helps me identify my strengths and weaknesses.

    I had to do my exams in yr 10 as well and then the rest in yr11 so it's not unusual.

    My advice would be to concentrate in class, I know this is always said but it really helps with the sciences so you can get important little details that the textbooks might have overlooked and improve your general understanding of the content.

    You can then test your understanding by doing EVERY past paper available to really practise and it's also a good way to see which topics you need to go back and revise from if you don't know how to answer them.

    If you still don't understand something, ask your teachers, they're there to help you so don't feel like you can't ask them a question on a paper you did outside of lesson time.
