    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
