I would say that they are very useful however personally there are some things that my teacher has taught us ,which is important, that wasn't on there. So you need to have at least some knowledge from what you have learnt in class as well as using the notes from physics maths tutor.
Hope that helps!

Okay then physics maths tutor is probably the best to use. I normally use it to do the exam questions.

Absolutely no problem!
I have been using it since Year 9 and have achieved grade 9s in all my science exams and assessments.

ok .... so

physics and maths tutor detailed notes and flashcards ....
(and check specification incase i missed anything )
and incorporate practice questions and practice papers


i know people rave about practice questions but how do you actually learn from them ? like is it like the format of the answer for the question or the answer for the question in case it comes up for exams , and how much practice questions do you normally do ?

(sorry for the spam , im just a bit confused )

Okay, that's fine!
Personally I am the type of student that understands like literally anything in a science topic but when you put it into actual context such as exam questions that's where I trip up. Exam practice papers help me because it makes me more used to the type of questions you are probably going to get in an exam and also it allows you to see what the examiner specifically wants you to mention to get those high grades. So honestly if my teacher told me to revise for my science exam i would normally ready through my notes specifically my key facts section, Cornell notes method, and then do an exam paper. once I establish those flaws I am able to then go back and revise on them.

practise questions and past papers are the closest thing to the actual exam that you’ll find in terms of style of question - they’re useful to work through as the textbook/notes will teach you the concepts but not how to apply it in unfamiliar contexts like the practise papers do
What subject is this for?

Honestly I couldn't tell you the exact timings but around 2-3 weeks although some topics are really short such as Chemistry topic 8. We also haven't learnt any physics yet except from like the first 2 topics.
