    I like to believe that if I have one true purpose in life, it is to pursue science and become a medical practitioner.
    I acknowledge how hard it is to get into medicine and the competition is high, and because of this, I worry that my mediocre 7 grade will not get me into one.
    I believe that I am capable of getting potential 8/9's in science, however I find it hard to understand why I am incapable of achieving them.
    Perhaps i am not taking notes correctly, or I might not have great exam technique.
    Can anybody with a current or predicted grade 8/9 in Combined/triple science recommend me some revision methods, sites and notes???

    Just don't stress or over revise

    There's a lot to learn in each science (I assume you take triple) so I'd first break it down into smaller sections.

    For Physics, learn all the equations by heart, even those given to you because the formula sheet really isn't that helpful unless you know how to use it.
    For Biology, exercise your literacy skills because that's more relevant here since there's less maths (or it's really straightforward).
    For Chemistry, it's the hardest science (for me) so I'd learn all the key groups of substances and how to do calculations.
