    Okay, so I've just gone into year 10 but started the science GCSE course last year, but I noticed last year when revising for end of year exams that my notes and work, were rather lacking and messy, not really great to revise from content-wise. Do you think a couple of revision guides and my textbooks will make up for this when it comes to my GCSEs or is there something else I should do?

    You can literally write out notes for the entire syllabus in a week tbh

    try to organise your notes more when you take them in class, take them as slow as possible to keep them neat and then buy textbooks and add to your notes (leave a line inbetween to fill with information) after school.

    Seriously though, the GCSE syllabus is so shallow. Assuming you understand most of what is taught, you can probably start about a month before the exams and still manage to get a 9.

    Science specifications are extremely specific.

    1. Print out specification
    2. Make notes on each spec point using revision guides, classnotes, textbook, videos, websites etc.
    3. Revise them
    4. Do practice questions.
    5. Do all the past papers available online.
    6. You get a 9
