I am not stressed over my other exams but I am frustrated with the amount of content that I need to cover for GCSE science. I really want to get A*s in all my sciences but I really don't want to be making flashcards and notes as I hate writing therefore I am intending on reading and memorising straight from the CGPs revision guides which in my opinion are excellent. Is this a good idea? Also how the hell do you revise for GCSE English 9-1 (AQA) I have no revision guides for English so could you please give me some advice?

I understand exactly how you feel! I hated making notes and flashcards etc, and most of my revision was reading and memorising. However, this is passive revision, and you won't absorb the content as well that way. If you hate flashcards and mindmaps, try some past papers, and ask yourself questions as you go through the revision guides to ensure you are actually absorbing what you are reading.
Good luck!

There are some YouTube channels for science that I know of and they are really good two of them do "All of ** in ** minutes" , they cover all of B1, B2, B3, C1, C2, C3, P1, P2 and P3 in less than an hour for each one, some are even 30 minutes. Be warned they only go over briefly each topic and is mainly for AQA but I think they do have some other specifications like Edexcel. These two channels are:

Science and Maths by Primrose Kitten
Science with Hazel

They also do some individual topics within science which is also good. This other YouTube channel "Freesciencelessons" goes through each topic quite in depth and has full playlists of each Core, Additional and Further Science.

Make your own revision guide or make posters is the best way for science!
