I would say look at some good websites like Bitesize and Seneca.

Absolutely look at Senecalearning.com for science! The time has come to stop doing such passive revision like making notes, and start doing active revision like testing yourself. Don't scrap notes entirely, just maybe try condensing topics like... maybe try and squeeze things to the bare bones and summarise it into a tweet (280 characters) - it's a really good way to get a general idea for a topic, and then fill in details when you're more confident. Maybe read a page in a textbook or do a section on seneca, write down everything you know in black and then cover it up and write it all down in green from memory. Everything you forget, be sure to add in red! You can do this so many different ways- when I did GCSEs, I found that quizlet was absolutely awesome to revise with! As long as you make sure to test yourself regularly and TAKE REGULAR BREAKS haha, you'll definitely be fine. Good luck

It’s good to try your best but I wouldn’t worry if you don’t finish your revision notes. You have probably absorbed more information than you think. Fun fact: I didn’t actually finish my notes for history and that happened to be the subject I did the best in at GCSE. You’ll be fine! Good luck with your GCSEs! 😊👍
