Application is tough to revise on its own.
You need to have a really firm grasp of the content first of all and then work on making links between topics and applying your knowledge to unfamiliar situations.
What is your exam board and what year are you in?
If you're AQA you could write some practice synoptic essays? E.g. on the importance of shapes in biology.
If also advise using Seneca learning, it's great for revision.

Hi, I'm in year 13 and doing AQA, we start the essays soon I think but we haven't done any yet
Thanks, I'll do some practice questions to see if I can link my knowledge to a topic, I feel like whatever I write is too vague or too specific and it's never right
