    I’m planning to go through the entire science course again as my school has nit taught us science properly due to issues with teachers etc, which is unfair to the students as it can affect our overall science grade. Yeah, I understand that it’s nearly March and some may say that there isn’t enough time but I’m willing to put lots of effort into my science grade. Just wanted to ask, should I use my CGP revision guide to go over the syllabus or the textbook that the school have provided? Also, how do you make notes from a textbook as I’ve never used a textbook before if I’m going to be honest.

    Tbh, at least what i’m doing, I’m in Year 11. Since i don’t want to waste/run out of time, i’m going to make flashcards on topics i’m less confident on/ more bulky then work from there.

    CGP is more summarised, so its better to absorb the information there by reading, unless you learn better differently. To make notes from a textbook, read the unit, then take down essential notes that you need (like key terms, explanations, factors etc)

    If possibly, get a tutor. Its worth the money in the end!

    Ahh, I see. I've heard that the CGP revision guides miss some content out, as its just a 'revision' guide. I find that flashcards don't work for me, unless im memorising a physics equation etc. Yeah, im planning to get a tutor for maths, not sure about science tho.
