    After getting a solid A in my GCSE sciences I realised my way of revising was very poor ineffective. How do you revise ? I still haven’t found the best way for me to revise. I am visual and kinetic person - I like note taking but I feel is not enough.
    I’m aiming for A* in Chem and A in bio a level

    I did Bio and Chem, best way I found was to go through the text book, make sure I know every topic off by heart, then do pretty much all the past papers memorise what they’re looking for to mark and then apply that to other questions

    Past papers, past papers, past papers. Then read mark schemes and examiner reports. If you’re sitting the new gcse you can use the exemplar ones given out by the exam board, however there might not be many of them.

    Sorry, probably my bad.

    I’m kinda in the same situation. For gcse I found it very useful doing the past papers (for science anyway). But we haven’t exactly done enough content yet to start doing these at A level.

    I’m making notes from the text book and from lessons, then going over my notes,but I feel like there’s something else I could do

    Samee😭I’m doing chem and bio at A level and I’m not sure how to study effectively. I have the textbooks and the revision guides linked with them. I also bought the cgp revision guides recently. However, I’m not sure if it’s useful to make notes or just understand and maybe memorise some important stuff. I’m really lost😭😶🙃
