I am doing my GCSE's on; Maths(Edexcel), English lit(AQA- Christmas carol, Macbeth and AIC, power and conflict), English Lang (AQA), Triple science (AQA) and Sociology (AQA).
Now I have got the revision guides from GCP for triple science and English Lit but nothing else for the rest of my subjects.
That's when I heard about Seneca and I was wondering if I could do revision through that as well as the revision resources my school gives me rather than buying a revision guide
Can I get away without buying a revision guide and use Seneca?
If you recommend me to buy a revision guide, which one?

YES!. I went from a 3 in English Literature to a 7 (doing all the same topics you do!). I would recommend not to use it for Maths Edexcel at times because it may seem quite demotivising that and alot of the topics such as 'capture recapture' are not actually on its list. Triple Science can be sufficient off of CGP but i would recommend covering topics that you are slightly unsure of on Seneca & reviewing them. I got (7,8,8)

Hoped that was informative!

i would say that using a mixture of freesciencelessons and primrose kitten (youtube) videos alongside seneca learning would be a good enough substitute for a revision guide

as far as i can remember seneca did cover all the topics but i did use it the few weeks before exams as a recap. Personally I think you should get the cgp textbooks and start from them and use seneca as a revision tool rather than a learning or information gathering tool.

Yes, but I would still buy the science revision guides. I managed to get away with not buying any other revision guides and I got straight 9s. I think for me, it was most useful for geography.

for me it is rlly helpful to reinforce information in my head. I would revise using the subjects specifications (so for physics, bio and chemistry) and annotate them where necessary and then do the subjects unit on Seneca. After that I do past questions and then grade 8/9 booster questions which I find rlly help! Good luck with revision!!
