    I did my GCSE's last year and I got A* in chemistry, even though the grading system is different I'm sure you could use a few of the same techniques. I found it quite useful to make notes based off the spec or when I wasn't bothered I made notes while watching videos on YouTube from freesciencelessons or primrose kitten. Also, QUESTIONS. Do loads and loads and loads of past paper questions because even if you won't get the same type of questions, the questions will be based on manipulating the knowledge, so the more questions you do, the more familiar you become with the actual information and it becomes easier to manipulate that information in the exam.

    Hope this helps xx

    Oh wow!! That is still very good then??? Because we’re the first year doing the 9-1 plus we have no isa so I think grade boundaries will be very low! Physics is just gonna make my grade drop😂😂 just do lots of past papers and get the jizz of the questions x

    I honestly don’t know, I’m revising but I don’t know if any of it is going in my head and if it’ll be good enough to get high grades 🤕
