Watch Primrose Kitten, Miss Brooms revision and Study Smart Science on YouTube, and do all the activities and tests for P2 on BBC Bitesize. They should have videos/ resources for your specification.

A few exam strategy tips:
  • If you don't know the answer to a maths question, show some working or make an educated guess. If you literally have no idea, at least write something (I usually tell people to write 10 since it's easy). You may be asked to use that answer for the next part of the question, and if you can do that, error-carried-forward marks mean that you can get full marks on that second part.
  • Write in units even if you don't know the answer. Pay special attention to strange units like C (Coulombs) and J/kgoC (specific heat capacity).
  • Keep referring to the equation sheet. I pretty much know them all off by heart because I use them so much, but I still refer to them just in case.
  • If you tend to run out of time, do the short-answer questions first. They give you the most marks per minute.
  • If you get asked to find the mean of a set of data, there will ALWAYS be an anomaly. Find it and exclude it.
  • Use question information. Sometimes all a question is asking you to do is understand the information given and summarise it.
  • Know the difference between "Describe" and "Explain". If you're asked to describe a graph, say what you see and quote data. If you have to explain, do the same but say why the pattern is the way it is.

How do you revise from them?

I'm planning to make flash cards on noting key bits

Go through the spec, outline what you don't know, work on it and hit the past papers.
