    Hi there,

    Has anyone here ever done the Science equivalency test at St. Mary's Twickenham?

    As someone who didn't do Science for their Irish Leaving Cert, I'm just wondering what the best way to study would be and how much study I would need to do in order to have a good chance of passing first time around.

    Thanks

    Sorry - only seeing this now. How did you get on?

    I've only just started myself but am going to use the foundation papers. Did you use any reading materials to supplement practicing with the AQA papers?

    I'm finding it really difficult to establish what I need to study without something like a textbook.
    Looking at the AQA papers is giving me some kind of idea of the kind of content that will come up but who is to say a topic that hasn't come up in recent years won't come up in the equivalency test. By looking at the AQA papers and revising material based on the questions asked in them, I could potentially be neglecting other areas that might come up in the equivalency test.
