personally i think seneca shouldn't be your main way of revising as it is more short sum ups of each topic, but it is useful for quick topic overviews or if you want a topic exxxtremly broken down if you dont understand it, we have to use it a hour a day but personally i don't find it completely effective as a main revision source

For some subjects yes, for others no and I still need to finish going over everything. I have done light revision over the past months but most of it is going to come from these Easter holidays and will probably be what I remember the most for exams.

Freesciencelessons and other YouTube channels are really good. I mainly use my school textbook and CPG revision guide. What about you?

honestly i know i am overworking myself as i am revising too many hours a day but that is another story i reccomend 5-6 hours

MYGCSESCIENCE and other science videos there are so many all over youtube, and what you should do after each topic complete questions, but also reprint those questions and form a booklet with all your topics near the time and answer all of them again, are you doing double or triple ? how many other subjects are you doing

If you want edexcel maths past papers: https://mathsoutlet.weebly.com/

In terms of Seneca, it does skip stuff so make sure you don't use it as your PRIMARY source of reivison, always refer back to the textbook to ensure you know everything. Also, I find it handy to have a copy of the spec at hand when I use seneca to tick off stuff I'm covering.

Don't stress, you'll be fine!

online you should can find many annotations for the main structures and points of the books, and also many model paragraphs and structure to form your own answers, if your not sure about that book i recommend you do many more practice questions on it as that can help you find out what you need to know and what you already can form answers to

I’m the same I literally haven’t started revising really but I’m concerned that I’m not really panicking and that’s making me panicking . Did you get good grades in you mocks ? Do you feel ready ?
