    Hi there. I do Edexcel and have taken the 3 following A levels: Chemistry, Biology and Physics. I am currently doing my AS levels. I would like to ask if y'all would reccomend getting CGP revision guides for these subjects. Like, did or do you guys find them good for revision and were they more useful than teh textbook and whatnot. Thanks.

    I do Biology and Chemistry, but AQA. The CGP revision guides for my course I have not found helpful, since they don't really go into the detail necessary for A* grades. Because of this I mostly use my textbooks for revision, however I do know that people in my class do find the CGP guides helpful so it may just be a personal preference thing.

    For chemistry, I can strongly recommend the ChemRevise revision booklets. If you google ChemRevise, they have revision booklets for each topic in the A level specific to each exam board and the new A level.

    Hope this helps
