Would I get good grades if I made notes solely from the CGP revision guides? Watch

    I'm in year 10, and I want to finish creating my notes this year, so I can focus the whole of next year on revising. I was wandering if I could grade 9s with solely revising from the CGP revision guides. I've went through the specifications of my exam boards for my different subjects and they match the revision guides exactly.

    Yep, but maybe not Grade 9s, just up to Grade 8 most likely. At GCSE Level is purely about memorisation and remembering essay writing techniques/quotes whereas I heard at A-Level you actually need to Understand it and CGP aren't as good for that. So yes CGP is good for GCSE Level and you can get those top grades using it.

    When I did my GCSEs two years ago, everyone I know relied heavily on them. Most of us got A*'s or A's. Though now it's harder to get the top grades so I'd imagine you probably could get a relatively high grade- but to get a really good grade then I'd advise getting the workbooks so you can practice answering questions which is always useful.

    why would you make notes from a revision guide, it is basically perfect, it is basically a notebook made by professionals to help you. Use revision guides, and past papers or sample papers to revise.

    Use the revision guide and the textbook simultaneously. I bought a book stand to be able to use both at the same time because I find sometimes one has information the other one doesn't...So it's better to make sure you are not missing out on anything. I would recommend you buy a book stand. More effective.
