Hey Tessa! I am going to sit my science equiv with Astar in a couple weeks too! Good thing is its multiple choice and you only have to get 55% to get a C which is 78 out of 144 marks. Combined is best according to astar as its basics of everything rather than in depth and technical for just biology. Ive been using the CGP revision books which have been helpful, bitesize and YouTube (the science guy and Cognito). I've then been writing flash cards and writing info in the form of questions with the answers on the back which seems to be working for me. I would say you have two options.. Try to cover everything briefly and learn key parts.... or focus more specifically on two subjects you feel more comfortable eg biology and chemisty as if you pass both of them thats 96 points already because its broken down 24 marks per module /two modules per subject eg biology. I hope that helps? Best of luck! Kelly

Hi 1979tessa,
to help you revise your sciences, I would recommend the videos by Primrose Kitten on Youtube among others- the videos are designed for the traditional GCSE but her explanations are very clear.
I hope this helps.
