    I just did my biology exam last week and I used a method where I read the page and then write down as much information as I can remember. It works pretty well since in my first biology i got an A using the same method. Can I use this same method for chemistry and biology or is there a better way?

    I watch youtube videos and write down what I understood. Rewatch the video and take additional missed notes.

    Ah GCSE,

    Everyone is different and learns differently, so what might be best for us may not be best for you.

    As stated above, I'd normally watch Videos (mygcsescience), thereafter do practice questions around the topic to consolidate what I have learnt.

    Lots of past papers, Physics is easy as you will have the formulas at the front of your exam paper (our exams are from OCR so this is from experience) all you have to do is try applying it to the question. If its like P1, P2 or P3 it's a bit different as some of it I dont understand as to how its physics, but mind maps are a huge help and also flash cards work wonders.
