    I haven’t tried for chemistry until now and have achieved consistent C’s and D’s. How do you revise for a science subject?

    Spend time learning the content, obviously. But don't waste all your time reading and re-reading notes, you'll know the stuff but it's all about practice. Seen as chemistry questions will often be application based, past papers are your best friend. Try them, look for themes in the papers, if you get questions wrong: identify what theme the question is and revisit it in the revision guide/text book and try more questions in that area. Also, read the mark schemes to look for specific words and phrases that examiners like, and also the most succinct way of explaining things.

    I was the same as you for GCSE Chemistry, however I constantly got E’s and U’s. Never really understood it and the teacher didn’t help. CGP and YouTube are a godsend, use YouTube and the internet to your advantage. I watched Chemistry videos from StudySmart Science repeatedly and along with that I made sure I understood everything in the CGP guide. This was all I did for Chemistry, and my first A in Chemistry was from the GCSE exam.

    Specifically at A level, ask your teacher for question worksheets from old books. Some have books from the last 20 years.... They always have the best questions because they take you through the concepts step by step and integrate your knowledge.
