I'm going gcse higher science and year 10 mocks are coming. No tuition around my area is open and I have CGP books. I'm doing aqa higher triple science and don't know how to memorise quicker and in detail. I've tried making notes but it doesn't help. What do I do?

You might want to investigate your learning style, and think about how you personally learn best (eg here: https://vark-learn.com) Within my friendship group for Latin, for example, we all memorised the vocab in really different ways, so I’m not sure there are universally available tips? Having several short chunks of focused ‘memorisation’, rather than just staring at the book and hoping it goes in might be a good starting point, though.

Doing past paper questions can also be a good way of sorting out what you do and don’t know so you can focus heavily on what you’re less confident with.

I hope that was at all helpful, good luck

Hi Exite!

Testing yourself with flashcards is always great for memorising. What I do to make it quick is I write a topic/question on one side and then try to answer it and then if I can't I will write what I forgot on the back and put it to the side and go over those ones multiple times. This means that you won't spend ages writing down flash cards in detail for things you already know. I also recommend looking for any revision Youtube videos or even getting a friend to call you and go through some things together.

I hope this advice helps!

Try physicsandmathstutors.com because it's really good and its free. also try Seneca and BBC Biteisze will likely cover it. All of these are free as well which is a bonus (Seneca has some paid for courses but most the science ones are free). Hope this helps!

I've already made flashcards out of them. I read the notes everyday but can't absorb the information.

You might be using the wrong revision technique. For me, my method of absorbing the information is through practical work like past papers or flashcards but I would not be able to absorb any information through videos and things like that. Find out what type of learner you are and use their revision techniques. Maybe you are a more visual learner or auditory learner. It's best finding out what you type you are and what revision techniques work best for you and it will help you so much in the future.

I wrote out questions on quizlet and then repeatedly tested myself.
