    I'm a Yr 11 student who does triple science and I'm predicted A*'s. I've always struggled with Science especially since the start of year 9 and I feel I can't get the a stars. I just don't comprehend & understand the concepts as fast as others when it comes to Science in general. Lastly unlike my other subjects I easily forget what I learn in my science classes. My question is how do I revise the three sciences for my GCSE's and understand and comprehend the subjects clearly. My second question is how do I constantly review my notes & not forget to read them after the first time?
    PS.(For my first question I like watching videos to learn, but how do I gather concepts from the video and understand them coherently?)

    I think you should make notes as you watch the videos as the information will stick to your head better and you can reread the notes you have made or look at them whilst rewatching the video. Hope this helps

    I find that watching a few videos on topics I'm not too happy with and take down some notes in a notebook that isn't my class book helps. I also go through my notes (in my exercise book and revision notebook) again with different coloured pens so I can see where I've changed notes or wrote a better definition. I usually bullet point key concepts and ideas in one colour, then expand in a different colour, then try out some past paper questions.
    For your second question, I think that spending a couple of minutes reading through notes or revision guides could help, like on your way to and from school or in break or lunch. I hope this helps you
