    I am currently studying the new 9-1 triple science GCSE. I do pretty well however i feel i could do better with more help. Not so much biology but Chemistry and Physics usually seem okay in lesson/ revision but a lot of the questions seem to confuse me in the mocks we have had. Also i tend to not be very good at summarising the topics so any summary sheets of the topics would be helpful/ advice on how to summarise. Any help would be fantastic, thanks.

    Maybe you don't like to learn this way but I suggest reading each paragraph from your text book and then summarising it by typing/ writing it up. This way you learn and have notes on hand which are compressed versions of the same info in the text book.

    I recommend summarising notes from a CGP textbook as the school textbooks are often bulky and contain a lot of throwaway and unnecessary information.
    The CGP textbooks are great. I use them currently but struggle to find anything that is not needed.

    I'm in the exact same situation. I'm fine in class but then as soon as I have a test, I completely fail. I'm fine with biology but I got 10/30 in my chemistry test and 13/30 in my physics. I think what I'm going to start doing is extra revision and start writing notes in my own words.

    Im the same, i can remember everything i need to just not how to apporach the exam question. I know the formulas and stuff but panick and dont realise where you have to use two formulas to get the answer or just talk about the wrong thing entirely. Also i always seem to run out of time aha.
