    So basically I have the combined science aqa revision guide and I’m just wondering is that enough? Bcos I have the cgp textbooks too and for chemistry and physics the textbooks r great, but unfortunately for biology, I can stand the pictures of the insects so I just use the revision guide... what should I do... ah the textbook is good as it’s more detailed and my biology teacher basically teaches me nothing... but I just CANNOT stand the images. Help!!

    Other than using the revision guide, do as many past papers as you can and literally answer them according to the mark scheme.

    It is, but you need to make your own revision material. CGP books, however, are the best revision guides!

    So for each unit, you have specific notes for them. Like a folder, say for chemistry, and have a wallet labelled "Electrolysis", and put key notes that you haven't copied word for words out of the revision guide and maybe create mnemonics and keep separate flashcard in them. I mean there are loads of ways you could create revision materials, but these are a few ideas. Hope that helped!

    When I was revising for physics (yr 12), I answered every question that had come up for the last 10 years, (by topic), and I did questions that related different topics together twice.

    For computing, I combined the textbook and the mark schemes into my typed-up notes and flashcarded the resulting notes.
