    Do past papers. At this point in the course, you won't be able to answer all the questions, so only answer questions on stuff you've actually learned. For the 1-mark questions in chemistry and physics, you just have to know the texbook answers. I know it's stupid and pedantic, but you have to go along with it. Try making cue cards or something so that you learn the definitions the way they are on the mark scheme or exam specification.

    Doesn't matter. Do it, mark yourself, and write down the full correction. Then that bit of information will remain in your brain.

    For science just learn the spec, rote learn idegaf.
    I have alevel mocks next week, so I feel you, by 1000.
    Just chill. That's what I would say.
    Oh and for context, I got AAA7 in sciences and maths respectively, as well as a 6 and 7 and lang and lit.

    You're so lucky you've actually been told when yours are, mine are in a week and a bit and we haven't even got the timetables yet.... for maths I recommend mathswatch if your school subscribes to it, if not then corbettmaths is really good and they do a pack of 90 flashcards for £9

    I did past papers for my GCSEs which is really helpful as you get to learn exam techniques, I also suggest that your teacher mark it (although you can mark it yourself, I was quite dishonest in marking my own papers). I tried to do a mind map of the formulae used in Chemistry as they don't give you a formulae sheet (I got one for my Physics exam). Do plan on how much time you're going to spend on the questions, for example, 8-10 mins on a 4 mark question.

    Maths and physics definitely come with practice, so if you ever run out of exam questions ( bearing in mind a lot of textbook questions are a bit lacklustre from experience) try asking your subject teachers if they can dig some out for you. Also for both physics and maths it’s probably worth practicing questions where you need to memorise formulae for, in case you don’t remember them already
