What type of resources do you want? If you're a bit more specific, I'm happy to make suggestions.

As the spec has only been running for one year, no-one can make educated predictions about what will come up beyond the obvious, like "at least one required practical".

Seneca and physics and maths tutor are both good. I'd aim to do a full run through of a past paper too before your exam.

TES is a resource sharing site for teachers, but anyone can make an account and download things- it might be worth having a look to see if anything catches your eye as being useful here:
https://www.tes.com/resources/search...evision%20mats
https://www.tes.com/resources/search...0flash%20cards

Some resources are paid for, but there is plenty of free stuff. You could also search for resources by topic.

At this stage, I'd also suggest finding a RAG sheet or going through the spec- anything you don't know at all it's probably too late to learn. Anything you do know you can ignore for now. Focus on "amber" topics, where you can easily gain marks by knowing the topic more thoroughly.

I hope this helps a bit!

Just a small list. Higher Triple Chemistry, these topics didn't come up (at all or only covered slightly) in 2018:
  • Addition/condensation polymerisation
  • Potable water
  • Sewage water treatment
  • Using resources - thermosetting/thermosoftening polymers, HDPE/LDPE, pottery, matrices, etc.
  • Extracting copper - bioleaching/phytomining
  • NPK fertilisers
  • Water purification practical

Mostly, though there was a question about the Haber process and naming the gases/conditions in the Haber process and about LCAs. There was also a bit about thermosetting/softening polymers. Other than that, I don't think C10 was covered in much detail.

As I said on the biology thread, exam boards are being very cagey about how content is covered in new spec exams. I think trying to question spot at this stage is a very dangerous game.

I don't think just copying the mark scheme is worthwhile. Go through a paper, do what you can, and then go through with the mark scheme, sure. Do individual questions and then look at the mark scheme- maybe do some open book with your notes to work on exam technique, but I don't think there's much to be gained from just copying a mark scheme.
