    n

    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
    good luck! thank you very much for the tips i highly appreciate it
    btw how are you tackling with the experiments?

    thank you ur most welcome
    ahh experiments their really tricky since u don't to practicals
    the way I go about them is I first look up a practical on youtube then I try and understand EACH different step and what happens I write instructions with all the info I learnt via books and vids so when I come back to revise I have everything I need (by the way this is for chemistry)
    also, try and do a couple of easy practicals eg i bought universal indicator paper from Amazon for about a pound and did a couple tests on household items another experiment u could do is chromography...so on sometimes even just doing random experiments maybe not to do with ur spec is good so u understand its not a theory its real the biggest problem i find ppl who do igcsse have is that they its a theory which its not.

    obviously, for investigation, u have corms to follow

    hope it helps
