Hi there
I'm looking for some study buddies to help with notes, revision etc. and share revision materials.
I'm going into year 11 in a week or so and all my year 10 notes have gone to smoosh.

I'm on the following courses:
English Language 9-1 (AQA 8700)
English Literature 9-1 (AQA 8702)
IGCSE Maths 9-1 (Edexcel 4MA1)
Chemistry 9-1 (AQA 8462)
Biology 9-1 (AQA 8461)
Physics 9-1 (AQA 8463)
Spanish 9-1 (AQA 8698)
ICT A*-G (AQA 4520)
Design and Technology: Resistant Materials A*-G (AQA 4560)
IGCSE Computer Science A*-G (CIE 0478)

If anyone is on these courses and looking to share revision materials and notes and collaborate, I would be very grateful!

Many thanks
Alicia

Currently in year 11. I'm taking:

English Language - AQA
English Lit - AQA (Macbeth, GE, AIC; power & conflict anthology)
Biology, Chemistry, Physics (Triple) - OCR 21st Century
French - Edexcel
Psychology - OCR (A*-G)
Computer Science - OCR
Maths & FM - Edexcel (A*-G)

My weakest subjects are English and French so would appreciate revision tips for those. I can offer quite useful revision tips (least, in my case) for Mathematics (my strongest, by far); sciences; psychology; computing.

What about learning each poem in detail? I can never do this for poems for some reason but can do fairly good in Macbeth, etc:

Here are links:


I recommend doing this order:
- mathsgenie worksheets
- mathsmadeeasy worksheets
- justmaths worksheets
- once you finished ALL the worksheets in ALL three sites move onto the papers
- AQA papers
- Edexcel papers
- OCR papers
- specimen papers
- CrashMaths papers
- Churchill papers
- practice set papers and mocks from school

Worksheets (for all topics with answers):

https://www.mathsgenie.co.uk/gcse.html

https://mathsmadeeasy.co.uk/gcse-maths-revision/

https://justmaths.co.uk/2015/12/21/9...c-higher-tier/

Your CGP workbook + CGP grade 9 workbook (buy them if you don't have them by now)

PAST PAPERS:
AQA papers: https://mathsmadeeasy.co.uk/gcse-mat...a-past-papers/
Edexcel papers: https://mathsmadeeasy.co.uk/gcse-mat...l-past-papers/
OCR papers: https://mathsmadeeasy.co.uk/gcse-mat...r-past-papers/

The CrashMaths, Churchill and specimen papers can be found online. Mock papers + practice sets can be requested from your teacher.

Thankyou , i'll do that.

For anthologies Mr bruff goes through all the poems in detail and explains context, structure and language. He also tells you which ones compare and how for each theme. Themes i would suggest revising are:

power of nature
power of human
power of identity
power if memory
power
conflict
war

Hello, I'm in year 11.

I take:

English lit-AQA (I find that going through your entire notes and then summarising them into key quotes for each main character and theme then placing them all in one place helps)
English language- AQA(I don't normally revise for this as you don't know what's going to show up but you could find a random picture on Google and write a short story on it)
Maths-EDEXCEL(practice questions, LOTS OF THEM)
Biology-AQA(I went through the entire textbook and made notes on it, I also occasionally read through the entire textbook which takes hours)
Chemistry-AQA(same as Biology)
Physics-AQA(same as Biology. However you can go through the textbook and make a list of all the formulae except for the ones you are given in exam)
Geography-AQA(going through the entire textbook and getting notes on each case study is useful, you can then read through the notes whenever you need to)

I'd like it if anyone could come up with some other ways to revise as well as ways to improve what I do (although most of it is just go through the textbook...)

German-AQA(this on is something I'm worried about... apparently practicing key vocab and phrases helps but I'm in trouble with German...)
Computer Science-AQA(for the parts where you have to do the conversion between binary, hex and decimal and the pseudocode as well as use RLE and Huffman code it's just practice and for the theory I just read through the textbook)
Electronics-WJEC( for the truth tables and binary it's just practice. For the formula get a note of all the ones you need and memorise them. Go through the spec and find out key components you need to know about and read/make notes on them)
