I used CGP revision guides and never came across anything in the exam that wasn't in there

Thanks for your response but did you use any textbooks alongside?

We had access to the Oxford one on Kerboodle. There appears to be more information but i think it's either not hugely relevant or just drawn out in comparison to the CGP one. As I said I relied very heavily on the CGP one and got a 9 in all three sciences.

I tutor GCSE students at a tuition centre and we heavily use CGP guides and it’s worked very well for the students so far.

I recommend these for triple science
Biology
https://www.amazon.co.uk/New-Grade-9...F3VQ6XF9D2DZAV
Chemistry
https://www.amazon.co.uk/New-Grade-9...83M9Y76PT68PCB
Physics
https://www.amazon.co.uk/New-Grade-9...34DSDAGPDTEYDG

They are a bit more pricey than the other cgp revision guides but they have the exact info you need plus exam style questions after each topic and tells you what part of the specification the page in the revision guide is from so it's very useful! Use this with the specification

Use these books along with the specfication and specification words. Do all past papers and learn specific words mark scheme is asking for. MYGCSESCIENCE is a good website though it costs £50 for triple.

£50 is a lot so I might not use it but thank you for the advice

I'm not 100% if this covers everything and will guarantee you a good grade so don't listen to me - discuss it with your teachers or your parents and they might know best.

Kerboodle and CGP! A combination of those will cover everything on the exam paper (at least in my view).

I'm not sure if any of my advice is correct so whatever happens, don't let me influence you and I am not responsible whatsoever for what you do.

I used the CGP textbooks (bought one for each science) and they were amazing. Explained all the content+ had loads of exam style questions at the end of each chapter
