yeah, there is. I found science to be my strongest subjects. firstly, I made my own specifications for science and kept it on the side. I used to pull out my thick @rse textbook and simply read it till I understood it and write the notes down either in a mind map or just in a book and tick it of my list. I loved using A3 paper so i could write big and also use diagrams and stick it on my wall.
hopefully, you'll do good xx
may I ask what exam board you are doing, also what tier?

With maths the only real way to practice is by answering questions, the same applies to some of science but it depends on how you learn best. For me I hated mind maps so would make lists for example listing the stages of the nitrogen cycle
