    this may not be much help, but i thought i'd let you know you're not alone!
    i am planning on properly starting revision next week, once my mocks are over.
    have you started revising yet? if so, what kind of things are you doing?
    good luck!! x

    Oh that's good!
    Yh same in the holidays I was planning to revise properly - basically try to know everything inside out!
    I've done a few things here and there but I was planning to revise for all my English Exams in these holidays and for the Science Exam (Paper 1 Only), and for my I.C.T, Maths and maybe History (Paper 1)
    Good Luck to you too

    You can very very easily. I started hardcore revision at the beginning of April and still got good grades albeit I did revise hard for mocks and this was on the old system. Nevertheless you have plenty of time, try not to burn out!

    I used to last year but then I just couldn't be bothered anymore. Notes will only waste my time if I start writing them out now anyway - I use the CGP revision guide which is really good. Also my teacher handed us the specification and she said that's literally all you need!

    Hopefully my plan works! What's your plan?

    To you too

    same! haha, i gave up on notes a long time ago, and for my mock, i literally just read my CGP book (probably not the best idea, aha).
    i think might, just might start making notes, using the specification, and then do past papers until the exams.
    i think i'll focus on certain papers in a certain period of time, like you- thank you so much for the idea! x

    Your Welcome. Hopefully we both get the grades we want but the Science has become really hard this year because we now have to do 6 exams in one year - the pressure is too much!
    Also, do you have any advice on how to answer Science Questions because that is the only thing that's stopping me from getting my Grades! (The questions are completely different to what I've learnt)

    i hope so, too! i'm really scared- these exams will be the death of me.

    as for answering science exam questions, i suggest that you look at the specification for each, and pick up the key words that are required for you to know, in order to pick up the marks. for example, in the specification for biology, it says 'osmosis is the diffusion of water from a dilute solution to a concentrated solution through a partially permeable membrane'- therefore, in order to gain the marks for a question involving osmosis, you must include the words 'diffusion of water', 'concentrated solution', 'partially permeable membrane', etc. the new exam mark schemes heavily require on key words, so make sure you include the key words they provide in the specification, and hopefully that will get you the marks xx
