    Hi, I'm a rather intelligent student (im trying to be modest, apologies!).
    I'm Studying the following GCSES:

    English Lit
    English Lang

    I feel very motivated to revise, are there any tips on revising sciences? I aspire to get grade 6-9 in those and i don't really know how to revise those. If you could help me on revising sciences, i would be extremely happy!

    How do you retain information? (Do you use flashcards, mindmaps, post-it notes) any forms of revising for the sciences will help me, Sciences seem to be my main problem in achieving the best grade. I may go into a test thinking im getting a grade 7-8 and i come out thinking i got 4/5.

    If you have books full of notes or files etc make your own notes on file paper . Do this by printing out the specification and going through every single bulletpoint and writing out notes on each. Then you will have far less pages and all the relevant info as they can out ask you anything else. Then topic by topic look through past papers and answer questions on the topics you have been revising and hopefully you’ll get these questions right. Also make flash cards closer to exam time.
