    Do you know what the difference is between Maths A and B? I went with maths a because most people I saw took that. I'm still revising until april and magnetism is one of the last sections so I haven't fully learnt it yet but from what I remember about it, it is quite tricky to get your head around.

    Thank you. You too. What topics do you struggle with in maths? After IGCSES I'm probably going to college to study applied science, I haven't fully made my mind up though. My plans are always changing I always overthink things. What are your plans?

    Do any of you have any tips for remembering experiments? There are quite a lot of them to remember across all of the sciences. We don't know which ones will be in the exam so I feel like I should know each step for every experiment 😫

    Hey.....so I finished my exams in Jan and I just wanna say the past papers are pure gold. They help loads, go through all years and memorize the mark schemes cuz that really helps you out a lot. There are some questions every year with similar answers, especially in chem. Train yourself to give the best application level answers in physics, its always got nasty mark schemes.

    yup! hazel is a life saver XD
    what revision technique are you using for bio, chem and physics?
    so the techniques I find useful are
    -mindmaps, so let's say I'm doing a chapter on the heart I'll try and make a mindmap(A3 paper) with all the info from the chapter the key parts, words, cycles...anything u think will be useful, then after that, i try and summaries the chapter on an A4 paper then after that I try and shrink all the KEY IMPORTANT ideas on a couple of flashcards
    -another way is to teach somebody or study with them so....if u have a younger sibling or parent just try and teach them I cant guarantee they like it but I find it helps me I even once got my nan to listen to me (she doesn't understand English lol)
    lastly, try TO UNDERSTAND and NOT MEMORIES
    if u understand a concept and u cant recall all the info it doesn't matter the thing that matters is that u understand once u do it will come automatically to u
    also, best of luck wish me luck too

    if u need any help my doors open
