I'm currently in Year 11 and have my GCSEs in less than 10 weeks.

My school asked us to buy Collins AQA GCSE Revision Guides for all three sciences last year (I do Triple Science so I have one for each science). Now the question is, a few of my friends got CGP GCSE 9-1 Complete Revision and Practice Guides and they say they're a lot better than the Collins Guides.

But I just had a look at the CGPs and they've got almost double the pages of the Collins Guide.

The thing is I don't want to waste any time as I don't really have any left before the GCSEs but I want to ensure I do the best I possibly can.

What do you guys recommend buying? Is CGP worth it? Should I go for them now? This is kinda urgent

hi! i have collins as my maths textbook and cgp as my sciences- it's true, cgp has a LOT more content than collins, although you have to buy the workbook and answers and textbook seperately which is a pain. collins are cheaper but have less helpful notes- if it's content you're worried about, go for cgp, but if you want more practice questions i would consider getting both! also the cgp notes are pretty cluttered as well- i know that's been a put-off to some people. overall i'd recommend cgp, especially if you're struggling a bit more- if you're already on the tracl to A*s (or 9s aha) maybe don't bother because they're expensive af.
hope that helped, good luck!

Hi I got 9s in all sciences and used the official oxford aqa textbook for each science aswell as the collins and cgp revision guides. With combining all these published materials I was able to achieve these grades. I hope that helps and good luck!!
