    I really reccomend mygcsescience
    I dont know if it costs money or something, my school gave it us for free. Anyway I didnt really pay attention much in class, was distracted all the time. I started revising in march solely using this website.
    I got A* in Physics
    Its also good for other sciences: I got A* in chemistry and A (1 mark of A* in biology)
    Highly reccomended 😊

    If you're looking for a free alternative to mygcsescience, check out Get To Know Science on YouTube.

    Furthermore, make sure you get a CGP revision guide and make notes from there.

    If there is anything you don't understand, it's often helpful to watch a video or ask a teacher/tutor.

    Hey, I personally find that revision flash cards are really useful, especially for small facts, formulas and laws, etc. It's also good for some of the longer 6-mark questions, as you have to just write out the most important details (as the cards are quite small and obviously wouldn't hold a page worth of details)
    Good luck with your exams! Is this your second year of GCSE's then?

    Watch all of his P1, P2 and P3 videos, his videos are very short and you'll understand the basics fairly quickly. Make short notes on each video and go through all your notes a few times, after a few days make sure to re-visit your notes, and then after another few days re-visit again etc.

    Then, do one past paper. Identify everything you got wrong, and watch those videos again and correct the mistakes you made. Once you understand all the basics, use the CGP revision guides which goes into detail about some topics, and then do more past papers etc.

    I would recommend doing as many past papers as possible, as you get used to the style of questions asked, and what each answer requires. Also, learning equations always comes in handy, so knowing them as best you can will help too. Flashcards are a good way of learning small bits of info, like equations
