    You still have plenty of time. In terms of revision do you have any strategies for how your revise?

    you need to change your mindset if you want to revise effectively. if reading the book doesn't help, make notes. look at your class notes.

    Okay well wanting to revise is the first step. I wouldn't assume that you'll be able to sit down for hours and revise immediately, but I think you should be able to build up to that.

    I would recommend starting with just a few half hour slots a day for revising one particular topic, for example you might look at ionic compounds, bonding etc in chemsitry.

    What you shouldn't be doing is just reading your cgp book, it's for revising not learning. If you have another textbook you use in class I'd recommend going through a small chunk of a topic making notes and trying to grasp the concept from the beginning. If you don't understand it go on YouTube and try and understand the basics. If this doesn't work, ask your teacher, or make a post on TSR, people will be rushing to help you. Don't move on until you think you've sussed it!

    Just don't give up, it's early on and if you understood everything now then you wouldn't need to revise would you!.


    Good luck

    If you don't understand some areas, go ask your teacher for more guidance. They should be able to break it down for you and explain it, possibly referring to other texts or practice questions for more help.

    Make really good notes from the CGP book. Writing stuff out helps you to remember and process information. Do as amny practice questions as you can get your hands on! This will consolidate your learning but also help you to practise exam technique which is really important.
    Lastly, change your attitude- have faith in yourself!! If you believe you can do it, you will do so much better. That sounds so cheesy but it's true. Work hard, and I'm sure you'll do fab.
    Good luck!!
