For science I just watched and made notes on freesciencelessons videos. He covers everything you need to know and I ended up getting 9s in sciences

Not sure if it would help but I've found Seneca good for most kinds of revision

I try to do that too but only on the factual stuff, like practicals. I genuinely don't understand chemistry so freesciencelessons is still too complicated for me I'll probably have to find the videos where he starts at the basics. What did you get in your science mocks?

In my GCSE mocks, I got a 4 for Science and an 8 in the real thing. I used freesciencelessons.com and the AQA GCSE revision guide was like my bible. I made flashcards from it and just practiced practiced practiced! I also did practice papers nearer the time. Good luck!

In my mocks I got 9s as well because I did enjoy learning science so I always worked hard for it but in year 8 I was rubbish at it I used to get 5s

That's really reassuring - when did you start revising and how often? It's difficult to balance all of my subjects in terms of revision, when I prioritise one I start failing the other

I've always been bad at science. But I do think once you stop thinking a subject is hard it becomes a lot less difficult.

I didn’t finish my flashcards until March so I only started properly revising then, if you make a revision timetable, it will help you to balance everything. I know exactly what you mean, I used to struggle with that too do revision plans really worked for me personally.

How exactly did you make your flash cards? (How to test for cations, precipitate colours, etc.)

I'm just not sure how to do them if that makes sense.

Which exam board are you with? I can send the link to the flashcards I made so you can see how I did them if you’d like?

Edexcel for Chemistry and AQA for Biology. That would be really useful, thanks!! I was assuming you made physical flash cards

A revision timetable is really helping me balance my revision. Lucas Mockeridge on YouTube has a good video on how to make one. Good luck

The adapt app might be good? I find it useful to structure revision plans.

I just downloaded it - it’s really good so far but slightly confusing - hopefully it helps with the procrastination issue. I think I just need the motivation to work now!!
