Hi, I do Biology, Chemistry and Geography a levels, al of which are covered on snaprevise (except for human geog). I mostly revise by mind maps as i am avery visual learner and practice questions. I do find the free videos useful though and wondered if anyone had paid for a course and can tel meif its worth it? or where i can find coupon codes as it is a lot of money!!

Can't help you on biology or geogarphy but for chemistry, fee people had it last year so iy was nec soec which you are doing too .. i didn't had but i still managed to get a* ... maybe idea of watching video doesn't really help .. peole are different it may work well for you but I am just saying you don't have to spend money to get good grades .. have a look at a level chemistry website fot all notes .. naybe you can highlight key points in notes and make a mind map .. also always compare to specification so you cover everything for exams ... di past papers as well ofcourse .. good luck

Not worth it, for biology and chemistry, you just need to go through the specification, then pick your worst topics, after that, go through them, by making notes, then condense the most relevant stuff (that matches the spec) to a mindmap. It's okay if your notes become messy, so long as you can still gather information from it (I recommend highlighting then making a mindmap of it), repeating this helps you get it in your head. Once you've done that, go through questions, if you mess up, find out where you're going wrong and try understand the mark scheme (what you need). Videos explaining isn't as helpful as going through the work and making your own notes, it helps a lot more when trying to memorise what you need to know!

I got it for geography on the basis that I was going to base my notes off of it, but it was quite disapointing, however it's still useful but not as a sole resource for note taking.

I’d definitely say it’s worth it for biology (at least AQA) as I find that it goes into much more detail than my textbook. Although, I usually end up using a combination of that, the CGP revision guide and my textbook for notes

Super expensive though and monthly payments. I really wanna try tailored tutors but money like that doesn't come by here, lol.

I had it for biology and it was honestly really helpful! Especially those topics where the teacher didn't explain very well. Me and a few friends chipped in and so the price was a lot cheaper - maybe try that?

I'd say its only worth it if you're struggling with the actual content or if you revise best by watching videos. Its useful if you want to teach yourself the content ahead of lessons or go over what you learnt in lessons. The only reason I don't think its worth it is because its not the best for practising exam questions if you already know the content - they do have some videos on exam questions but they seem pretty basic.
You could ask your school to subscribe to it instead of purchasing it yourself
